You won’t be able to watch Snowpiercer until May 17 (though I have seen it and all I will say at this point that it is worth a watch). But unlike other SciFi shows, most notably Star Trek, the Snowpiercer team, from network to graphic novelists, don’t want any questions about timeline or canon. On April 28, 2020, I received the official Snowpiercer universe timeline from Titan Comics. And I’m sharing it with you.

Titan reveals that the TV show takes place before the movie.

And they also include several upcoming graphic novel releases that will flesh out the story before and after the television show, and integrate with the film.

Like 1001 cars of Snowpiercer, the creative team wants to ensure the franchise stays on track with its fans (sorry).

So here’s what to expect over the next several months:
