Snowpiercer wrapped up its first season back in July with powerful endings and intriguing new beginnings, setting the stage for a blockbuster second season that's been in the works since before the first season premiered. It's a time of fresh upheaval on the train, as new adversaries and new struggles threaten to bring everything the passengers worked for in Season 1 crashing down. Is a new regime on the horizon? We'll have to wait until January to find out, but today we got another peek at what's to come in the form of an exclusive first look at Season 2's key art.

In Season 1, Snowpiercer was all about revolution, about what happened when Layton (Daveed Diggs) was able to use his detective skills to leverage his way out of the tail and begin to affect real change in the rest of the train even as Melanie (Jennifer Connelly) seemed to resist him at every turn. Through a murder mystery, a trial, a dangerous scientific experiment, and many more secrets, Layton and Melanie eventually realized they were actually on the same side, and perhaps the only way for humanity to survive was to break down the illusions of the old order on the train and make way for a new one.

That brings plenty of struggles of its own, as Layton found out just as Season 2 was nearing its end, but reorganizing society onboard humanity's ark train turned out to be the least of his and Melanie's worries. It turns out a second train was out there the whole time, this one under the command of the enigmatic Mr. Wilford himself, played by Sean Bean. As you can see from the exclusive key art below, Wilford's presence, as well as the presence of his train, looms large in Season 2 — and we're not likely to be rid of him anytime soon.

Back in October, ahead of Snowpiercer's New York Comic Con appearance, showrunner Graeme Manson offered SYFY WIRE a tease of what's ahead in the struggle against Wilford, and why it won't just be a rehash of Season 1's battles.

"In the first season, we had not just a war, but a revolution, and it was violent and it carried a lot of those brutal fighting of the film, which I love so much," Manson said. "Wilford's a different kind of foe for Layton. Wilford is underhanded, incredibly charismatic, he has a support on the train already, and he's incredibly strategic. So for Layton, it's a battle of wills and we did set about to create a different kind of war here. A more political war, really." But this new, "more politica war" is not the only struggle onboard Snowpiercer, because no matter who's in charge in the end, people still want to survive to fight another day. That means that as Layton and Wilford are engaged in their struggle for supremacy, Melanie — who's just discovered that her daughter Alexandra (Rowan Blanchard) is still alive and under Wilford's care — will also be hard at work

According to TNT's official synopsis for Season 2, her goal will be to "lead the charge on a shocking new discovery that could change the fate of humanity." What could it be? Does it have anything to do with what she finds outside the train at the end of Season 1? Will she succeed? We'll find out soon enough.

Snowpiercer returns January 25 at 9 p.m. ET on TNT. If you need to catch up before then, you'll definitely have a chance, because January 1 will bring the entire first season of the series to streaming HBO Max.

Hopefully. That is why we must all do our part and buy season 1 even for just a Bean cameo :P

I still wish they just released Legends season 2 like they did the first one.

SNOW GOING BACK Snowpiercer season 2: Cast lift lid on ‘wild, alternate dimension’ in new train after Big Alice cliffhanger finale
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."

Snowpiercer sent fans wild last month with first look pics of Sean Bean as Mr Wilford.

Meanwhile LJ actress Annalise Basso hinted that season 3 is already in the works after some "good news" from show bosses.

Wolfwalkers' directors on difficulty of hiring British actors to play British villains in Irish movies
The new Irish movie is a huge Oscar favourite, and will be one of the first movies to be shown in cinemas when the Level 5 restrictions are lifted.

Let us not beat around the bush here, Wolfwalkers is probably going to win the Oscar for Best Animated Feature at the 2021 Academy Awards.

Sure, it is going up against Pixar and Disney, but we feel good about the gifted storytellers at Kilkenny-based Cartoon Saloon and their chances of winning.

Before we get into the interview, you should know that Wolfwalkers is due for general release in Irish cinemas from Friday, December 4, with advance screenings from Wednesday, December 2.
