If you haven’t watched any of Netflix’s adaptation of Snowpiercer then here’s what you need to know. 

It’s based off the hit film of the same name made by Bong Joon-Ho in 2013, if you recognise HIS name it’s because his Korean language film Parasite won Best Picture this year!

Snowpiercer is set 7 years after the entire world froze over, the ‘Snowpiercer’ is a train that continuously circles the earth with the only remaining human survivors. 

Imagine a long train that is self-sufficient and a micro-system of current global issues of class inequality, social injustice and politics.

The closer you are to the front of the train, the wealthier you are, the more comfortable your lifestyle is on the train and vice versa.

The final episode of Season 1 aired this week, you can watch the trailer for the entire season here.
