Snowpiercer series is coming to Netflix on 25 May, announced the streaming giant.
The series is a take on Oscar-winner Bong Joon-ho’s post-apocalyptic dystopian sci-fi movie released in 2013 of the same name and will roll two episodes weekly at the streaming site.
The first season of the series comprises 10 episodes in total, and Netflix will release the first two episodes together on May 25, with new episodes releasing weekly on Monday after that.
According to the series synopsis:
“Snowpiercer takes place seven years after the collapse of society due to a global climate catastrophe. All remaining human life now lives aboard the massive Snowpiercer, a perpetual-motion train constantly circling the icy surface of the earth.
The train is ordered according to a class system, with the elites living an extravagant life in the front cars and the poverty-stricken lower classes inhabiting the tail in squalid conditions.
It tells the story of what happens in the face of extreme inequality — when those who have been oppressed their entire lives finally decide to take their destiny into their own hands.
Filled with suspense, mystery, and unrelenting action, Snowpiercer is a stylish and timely tale of how humans are forced to act in a world turned upside-down.”
