Snowpiercer is arriving into our screens once again, as we follow the lives of those who inhabit the perpetually-moving train that has replaced civilization as we once knew it. It circles the globe with the only remaining survivors, as the world is now a frozen wasteland. Aboard this train, there's a massive class divide that causes power struggles, as those in the lower classes live in terrible conditions.

At the end of the first season, there's an uprising which sees Voice of the Train Melanie (Jennifer Connelly) handing over control of the train to Layton (Daveed Diggs) and the other rebels. But it turns out they had much bigger problems ahead. In dramatic scenes, another train named Big Alice docked behind Snowpiercer, revealing that the original architect of the train, Mr Wilford, is actually alive and Melanie had been lying this whole time. Now that Mr Wilford is back on the scene, he wastes no time in taking back control of Snowpiercer once more.

This has left fans on the edge of their seats wondering what the future holds for this ever-moving train, and the inhabitants of this strange frozen wasteland. If you need a full refresher, you can check out our Snowpiercer Season 1 recap.
