Snowpiercer will return for season 2 in January

With season 2 set to drop early next year, leading man Daveed Diggs has teased fans what lies in store.

Diggs plays Andre Layton, who successfully overthrew Snowpiercer’s ruling powers after uniting those living in poverty in the trail and the workers of third class.

However, the dust had barely settled on the civil war when the mysterious Mr Wilford made a surprise arrival in a second, larger train known as Big Alice.

After latching on to Snowpiercer and bringing the train to a halt, Wilford demanded talks with Melanie Cavill (Jennifer Connelly), who had been ruling in his absence, maintaining the facade that he was still alive and onboard after his disappearance.

Season 2 will delve into the society governed by Mr Wilford on Big Alice and Diggs warned audiences they’d be in for a dramatically different world.

“As an actor I’m really jealous of the Big Alice crew in some ways. They’re like, so wild!” he revealed at New York Comic-Con.

“Those characters are like… it is a different world, so when we’ve been living in Snowpiercer for a year and then you come up against Big Alice it feels like an alternate dimension, kind of,” he went on.

“The way they dress is slightly different and, it was kind of like you go to a new school and there’s all the cool kids? You’re like ‘Oh man, I don’t know, I’ll never be cool like them.’”

The sentiment was echoed by showrunner Graeme Manson, who hinted at an alotgether different class system aboard Big Alice.

“That’s one of the things we love to do on the show, and that really comes from director Bong [Joon Ho]’s energy,” he added.

“How you could open a door and constantly find some amazing set. We love to do that every year and Wilford’s train really gave us that opportunity,” he continued.

“But Big Alice is a prototype so it’s not all First Class back there. They have a different society, Wilford has created something else.”
