All aboard! It's time to watch Snowpiercer season 3 online, and no that's not delirium: the possibility of a non-frigid destination is actually possible. Last season, if you forget, finished off with Layton and his group breaking off from the Snowpiercer in a 10-car "pirate train" to find Melanie.

Update: Snowpiercer is being killed off after four seasons.

Snowpiercer season 3 premiere date, time and channel

Snowpiercer season 3 episode 1 airs at 9 p.m. ET/PT today (Jan. 24).
Season 3 will continue to air at this time, weekly, on TNT.

As Layton has told his crew, there seems to be an area with a warm climate they could actually reach. It's called New Eden. Of course, though, they don't have an easy path to rebooting civilization off this hope alone.

Mr. Wilford, as you might expect, is not happy that Layton and the rest escaped, and is planning his revenge. Then there's also the question of what's up with Asha, as we met the survivor who lasted 8 years out there.

Snowpiercer, now in its third season is a TV adaptation of the Bong Joon-ho movie of the same name, which adapted a French graphic novel named Le Transperceneige. Snowpiercer's show-runner is Orphan Black co-creator Graeme Manson, and season 3 seems like Manson's playing with an optimism that's truly needed right now.
