If there was a series that was timely and topical – it would have be the television reboot of Oscar-winning director Bong Joon-Ho’s Snowpiercer.
Based on the 2013 sci-fi thriller and the French novel Le Transperceneige, the series is set in a near dystopian future where the Earth has frozen to the core after efforts to reverse global warming resulted in creating another ice age.
Featuring a star-studded cast with Jennifer Connelly, Daveed Diggs (from Hamilton) leading the series follows the remnants of humanity who inhabit a gigantic, perpetually moving train that circles the globe. The show questions class warfare, social injustice, and the politics of survival.
Making it all the more exciting to watch is its weekly episode release schedule on Netflix that will be following its cable series in real-time.
The first two episodes are already out (released earlier for fans) and episodes will begin airing from June 1st onwards.
