“Snowpiercer” will make its final train stop on TNT after its fourth season, currently shooting in Vancouver.
What a shame, but the writing was on the wall. David Zaslav and his Discovery team are taking the entire Warner Bros. machine apart. They’re putting an end to scripted dramas on TNT and TBS even if they were hits.
“Snowpiercer” is based on the movie by “Parasite” director Bon Joon Ho and stars Jennifer Connelly, Daveed Diggs, and Mickey Sumner, among others. It’s been very popular. Season one averaged 1.3 million viewers per episode, but as time went on– and nothing was done to promote the show– last season’s numbers cut that in half.
Connelly, of course, an Oscar winner, is featured in the new “Top Gun” movie. Tony winner Diggs from “Hamilton” is in constant demand. Sumner is already fielding offers. Another regular, Sakina Jaffrey, is now a regular on “Billions.”
