season 4 is shot but no one can see it

Snowpiercer goes off the rails and loses its broadcaster in the United States. Who to recover the series worn by Jennifer Connolly.

One last season and then goes. Last year, we learned that the next episodes of snowdrops would be the last. After four bursts of episodes, the adaptation of comic books by Josh Friedman and Graeme Manson is bowing out on the TNT channel. The subsidiary of Warner Bros Discovery is cleaning up its production library, and this work of science fiction is obviously no longer in its priorities. But then not at all. The channel will not even broadcast, according to Deadline, this final season. A company spokesperson explains:

“I can confirm that TNT will not be broadcasting Season 4 of Snowpiercer. It was a tough decision, but our admiration for the talented writers, actors and crew who brought the extraordinary post-apocalyptic world of Snowpiercer to life remains strong. We’ve been working with the producers for the past year to help the series find a new home where fans can continue to enjoy the captivating story and exceptional viewing experience it offers. We look forward to working with them on future projects.”

A key tax reduction

Snowpiercer is not the first project canceled by Warner Bros. Discovery. Since this summer, the ax has fallen on many DC or HBO stamped projects. We still remember of the fate reserved for bat girl directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, which although set to hit theaters in 2023, was suddenly canceled by DC Films and Warner Bros. This had even precipitated the departure of Walter Hamada at the head of the license. According to the Deadlines, these cancellations are not anecdotal. This is a way for Warner Bros. Discovery to reduce its current productions to benefit from a tax deduction.

All is not lost for Snowpiercer, unlike Batgirl, since the production company Tomorrow Studios is actively looking for a new broadcaster. The company’s CEO explains: “We hope to find the perfect partner very soon and end this wonderful journey with the final season.” It will probably be necessary to be patient since the negotiations could take a little time. No buyer has yet been officially announced. It’s also unclear who is in the running for exclusivity.

Note that in our green regions, it is netflix which broadcasts the series worn by Jennifer Connelly and Daveed Diggs. The last season – as well as the previous ones – had been offered simultaneously with the American broadcast, namely one episode per week. Remember that Netflix has several times saved series abandoned by the American cable network. Lucifer, which ended last year, had also given the platform a very good audience record.

The red N has also recently reproduced the feat by recovering Manifest and by offering him a real audience card. In both cases, Netflix was even responsible for the production of new episodes. The fact remains that the platform seems to be at the time of savings and that it is already having a hard time continuing the productions it is undertaking. Its economic model is no longer so infallible, productions no longer really have the right to make mistakes.
