Snowpiercer - Rowan Blanchard Joins TNT's Futuristic Thriller



Rowan Blanchard (Girls Meets World, The Goldbergs, A Wrinkle in Time) has joined the cast of TNT's futuristic thriller, Snowpiercer, per Deadline.

Blanchard will guest star during Season 1 but has the option to become a series regular should the drama be renewed for a second season.

Set seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, Snowpiercer centers on the remnants of humanity who inhabit a gigantic, perpetually-moving train that circles the globe. Class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival are questioned in this riveting television adaptation.

Netflix will internationally distribute the series much like another TNT series, The Alienist. Graeme Manson (Orphan Black) showruns the sci-fi drama. A premiere date has not yet been set.

Blanchard will play Alexandra, a self-assured 17-year-old, wise beyond her years, with mysterious connections to the history of Snowpiercer.
