Snowpiercer Series Finale Filmed But Won’t Air Anywhere Because of Tax Write-offs

Well, this is an unpleasant look into how a TV production works – and how TV shows get canceled.

Snowpiercer’s season 4 and series finale has been filmed, finished production but won’t air anywhere as of now, because the TNT Network may want to take advantage of tax write-offs.

A new report in Deadline about the Snowpiercer season finale reveals that the show was canceled abruptly at the end of 2022, even though production is complete. 

According to their sources, Snowpiercer season 4 won’t be broadcast on TNT in a “move” that “is believed to be part of the tax write-offs for content at WBD”. 

Snowpiercer was the last original scripted series available on TNT but still got the axe on the Warner Bros. Discovery-owned network. This is the latest victim in the Warner Bros. Discovery content cull and reorganization, which saw even Westworld canceled.

The fact that TNT pulled the Snowpiercer season finale from its calendar prompted Tomorrow Studios, the studio behind the series, to start looking for a new home for the show, one that might even help it develop it into a franchise.

“This was a difficult decision, but our admiration for the talented writers, actors and crew who brought Snowpiercer’s extraordinary post-apocalyptic world to life remains strong. We have been working collaboratively with the producers since last year to help the series find a new home where fans can continue to enjoy the compelling story and exceptional visual experience. We look forward to working with them on future projects,” they said in a statement to Deadline.
