Unfortunately, Netflix USA does not features this season. TNT airs the season on their platform. Also, the series just recently found a new streaming home, so it won’t change that anytime soon.
Additionally, the HBO Max streaming service will air the new season on its platform. WarnerMedia owns both TNT and HBO Max so the transfer was not much of a surprise.
Netflix has picked up Snowpiercer from TNT. So, the streaming giant do the same for this series to keep it on its platform in USA.
We will bring more details very soon. Until then, stay tuned and keep reading for all the latest updates!
