Bong Joong-ho is the king of class-conscious film making, and he’s got an Oscar to prove it. Before Parasite made him a household name, he thrilled audiences with dystopian action film Snowpiercer.
After the world falls into an ice age after a climate change fix goes horribly wrong, the remnants of society hop on a train that circumnavigates the snowy wasteland. Naturally, the class divides are as harsh as they were before perpetual winter hit. Those at the front of the train live lives of luxury and comfort, while those at the back struggle to survive. But how did it all begin? Snowpiercer the TV series is a prequel to the 2013 action hit and proves to be just as thrilling.
Here’s everything you need to know to stream Snowpiercer.

Snowpiercer TV Show Reviews
What the critics are saying
- “Though many of its 1,001 cars are cast in a familiar mold, Snowpiercer still manages to find new ways to interrogate power structures, as well as build up steam—or rather, power the eternal engine—for a second season of quietly compelling stories. Its style might not match its ambition, but after an arduous trek, Snowpiercer mostly proves to be worth the wait.” –Danette Chavez, AV Club
- ” Indeed, in our world, people have not grown notably more articulate since the pandemic began — quite the opposite, in fact. It also feels like a show that’s working to create counterpoint between a backdrop that’s so far out on a limb of oddity that its action needs to be extra prosaic for balance. The result is watchable, but not much more.” –Daniel D’Addario
