TVLine Items: Snowpiercer Arrives Early, Ellen's Remote Return and More

Snowpiercer Premiere Date

Snowpiercer is on the move again — but this time, it’s arriving sooner vs. later. The long-gestating, post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller will now debut Sunday, May 17 at 9/8c on TNT.

The series, starring Oscar winner Jennifer Connelly (A Beautiful Mind), Tony Award winner Daveed Diggs (Hamilton) and Emmy nominee Alison Wright (The Americans), was previously slated to premiere Sunday, May 31.

Based on the critically acclaimed graphic novel (which was first adapted for film by Parasite director Bong Joon Ho in 2013), the TV version is “set more than seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland” and “centers on the remnants of humanity who inhabit a perpetually moving train, with 1,001 cars, that circles the globe,” according to the official logline. Watch a trailer here.
