Snowpiercer fans convinced they’ve spotted survivors in frozen wasteland outside of train in game-changing twist

SNOWPIERCER fans are convinced they’ve spotted survivors in frozen wasteland outside of train in game-changing twist.

After its first appearance on Netflix late last month, viewers of the TNT American post-apocalyptic dystopian drama have already started to point out a number of blunders in the series.

The new thriller follows a group of people who are coming to terms with the fact that the only way they can survive is if they stay inside on the train.

But one eagle-eyed fan thinks that they noticed something that could imply that there is life outside of the Snowpiercer.

Taking to Reddit, a user who goes by the name of Borthole, wrote: "Hey everyone. I just watched the first two episodes of the show and now I’m hooked, I could do without the murder mystery aspect but that’s another story.

"Anyway, did anyone notice at the beginning of the first episode after they were all on the train (almost seven years after departure) that someone (I forget who now sorry) looked out a window to the frozen landscape and in the foreground there was a house with a chimney with smoke coming out of it.

"I’ve never seen the movie so I’m only going off of what the TV series has shown but I can’t stop thinking about that little house!"

But it looks like not everyone is on the same wave length as him.

One replied: "I thought it was snow in the wind, but I'm definitely not sure so you could be right and have spotted something!"

Another said: "It's coming out of some kind of large frozen ship and it looks like steam. Maybe an oopsie?"

Fans of the new show are upset at having to wait a week between episodes rather than being able to binge of the series in full.

Unlike a lot of shows on the popular streaming service which release the entire series in one go, Snowpiercer has been dripped out weekly.

And fans currently enduring lockdown due to coronavirus who love to binge on boxsets of new dramas have labelled the move a “schoolboy error”.

Writing on Twitter, one fan wrote: "I think #Netflix made a mistake not releasing all episodes of #Snowpiercer especially during a pandemic.


What's on Netflix and Amazon Prime?

Looking for a new Netflix series to binge or the best movies to watch on Amazon Prime? We have you covered...

"First two episodes are great but not sure I would remember to watch weekly ... most shows that drop an episode weekly I’m way behind in."

Another added: "Why is Snowpiercer being released weekly as a Netflix made show?? I need the whole season!"

A third agreed: "Not impressed that #Snowpiercer is a weekly episode show on Netflix."

Snowpiercer is based on both the 2013 South Korean-Czech film of the same name, and the 1982 French graphic novel Le Transperceneige, from which the film was adapted.

Set in 2021, seven years after the world becomes a frozen wasteland, it follows the remnants of humanity – including Melanie Cavill (played by Jennifer Connelly), and Andre Layton (Daveed Diggs) – who inhabit a gigantic, perpetually moving train that circles the globe.

With humanity destined to this way of life, its residents have no choice but to manage together until they find a better way of living, and the show questions class warfare, social injustice, and the politics of survival.

he first two episodes of the series gripped viewers with an epic opening scene which saw how the Snowpiercer left thousands behind, condemning them to death.

The reasons behind the decision are that Snowpiercer is actually created by the TNT network, a subsidiary of WarnerMedia.

While it is distributed in the UK and various other countries as a Netflix original series, it still has a terrestrial air time in the USA, meaning it has to arrive on screens each week.

Snowpiercer releases episodes every Tuesday on Netflix.
