The long-gestating "Snowpiercer" series is on the move.

In the same press release, Brett Weitz, general manager for TBS and TNT, said: "We believe in the longevity of this series and that audiences will be amazed by the fantastical world that brings to life such relevant social, political and environmental issues." Ok! In conjunction with the announcement, TBS handed out an early season 2 renewal for the series, which is set to premiere in spring 2020. TNT, meanwhile, has focused on dramas like "The Alienist" and "Animal Kingdom". The show was first put into development in 2015, ordered to pilot in 2016, and ordered to series in 2018.

But, Friedman lashed out at Manson for not reaching out to him in a series of Tweets, and then Derrickson tweeted about his exit from the series citing Manson's "radically different vision". James Hawes came onboard to direct the reshoots last July.
