TNT announced in June 2022 that the fourth season of snow drill — based on the 2013 Bong Joon-ho film, itself derived from a French graphic novel about a frozen Earth whose surviving inhabitants circumnavigate the globe on a perpetually moving train — would be the last. It would have been the last homegrown drama series to air on TNT, as WBD dropped scripted programming on the channel and half-brothers TBS and TruTV. As it stands now, that designation is going to animal Kingdomwhich concluded its six-season run in August.
The show is one of a series of titles WBD has pulled from various platforms as it seeks multi-billion dollar cost savings following the WarnerMedia-Discovery merger. include the finished Bat girl film that was destined for HBO Max, second season of the TBS comedy Chad (what ended on Roku), HBO Max Martha (which landed on starz) and hundreds of library episodes on HBO Max, including Looney Tunes and Sesame Street.
Other companies, notably AMC Networks, have adopted a similar strategy of non renewing shows or withdraw series orders, as the tough economy and hangover from the early off-years of the broadcast era have tipped the balance sheets to the red.
Paul Zbyszewski joined snow drill as showrunner for the fourth season and executive producer of the final run with Christoph Schrewe, Adelstein, Clements, Matthew O’Connor, Ben Rosenblatt, Scott Derrickson and the producers of the 2013 film: Bong, Miky Lee, Jinnie Choi, Park Chan-wook , Lee Tae-hun and Dooho Choi.
