Based on a French graphic novel, written by Jacques Lob, Benjamin Legrand and Jean-Marc Rochette, and the eponymous film adapted from it, Expresso do Amanhã tells the story of passengers on a huge train all divided into luxuries and perks for the wealthiest and misery for the poorest.
The plot also questions social justice and the class struggle in an inventive and symbolic way, since all conflicts are due to the survival of the most oppressed group. At the end of season 1, the survivors of the revolution are trying to stay calm and better understand what has been going on.
Layton (Daveed Diggs) was emerging as the leader of the train, but it is discovered that Mr. Wilford (Sean Bean) is alive and coming on a rival train. Melanie (Jennifer Connelly) risks leaving to prevent him from invading the Snowpiercer.
Thus, in the 2nd season, we will see an even more dangerous installed revolt.
The new episodes of Expresso do Amanhã will open on January 25 on TNT. In Brazil, the production can be seen by Netflix.
