Warning: spoilers ahead for the season two finale of Snowpiercer.
The season two finale of Snowpiercer on Netflix was rife with revelations, including the massive shock that Melanie Cavill (Jennifer Connelly) may be dead after carrying out a month-long scientific mission outside of the train.
While the series has only just wrapped up, fans will no doubt already be desperately wondering what will happen in season three after watching the head-to-head between Andre Layton (Daveed Diggs) and Mr Wilford (Sean Bean) intensify.
With Josie (Katie McGuinness) now officially in action after being healed from her severe frostbite, viewers may also be predicting whether she will remain at Layton’s side or somehow get wrapped up in Wilford’s web.
From Melanie’s return to Josie’s growing power, here are our predictions for season three of Snowpiercer.
Melanie Cavill will return
At the end of the season two finale, Alexandra Cavill (Rowan Blanchard) and Layton discovered Melanie’s data at the science station… but with no Melanie in sight.
Did Melanie really die… or has she survived? (Picture: TNT)
This led them to conclude that Melanie had died, with a letter written by her to her daughter seemingly confirming that she wandered off into the snow as she used up all of her resources.
However, as viewers didn’t actually see Melanie die, this has led some to believe that she may have somehow survived, perhaps by discovering a colony of other survivors in the mountains.
Plus, we know for sure that Melanie will be making an appearance in season three… although for all we know at the moment, Jennifer may simply show up in flashback scenes. Stay tuned!
Josie’s power will continue to grow
Season two of Snowpiercer came with the bombshell revelation that Josie survived after being left to freeze to death by Melanie in season one.

When Layton visited Josie in the medical ward, her entire body was bandaged up, her face almost unrecognisable due to the severe frostbite she experienced.
After being taken to Wilford’s supply train Big Alice and tended to be eccentric scientists Mr and Mrs Headwood (Damian Young and Sakina Jaffrey), Josie is not only healed, but altered in a way that means she can now withstand extremely low levels of cold, like Wilford’s henchman Icy Bob (Andre Tricoteux).
As Josie’s only just started to discover what she’s truly capable of, who knows how much her power will grow in season three.
Wilford’s reign may not be over
Before heading over to Melanie’s station, Layton and his allies break off the part of the train containing Wilford and several other passengers, including Ruth Wardell (Alison Wright).

However, while they have managed to stop Wilford from foiling their plans to retrieve Melanie’s data, viewers can be sure he isn’t gone for good.
When Wilford came back into power on Snowpiercer after years away, he had a significant amount of influence and a horde of dedicated followers.
Will Layton be able to take back control or even trickier after being ousted?
Miss Audrey will reveal her true colours
Miss Audrey (Lena Hall) has had a fascinating arc in season two of Snowpiercer, being revealed as a former escort and lover of Wilford’s who he severely manipulated.
Still bearing the emotional and physical scars of their relationship, Audrey agrees to go undercover on Big Alice following Wilford’s return, pretending to be under his spell again while actually gleaning information.
It appears that during her mission, Wilford succeeds in winning Audrey back and turning her against her allies on Snowpiercer.
However, Audrey is extremely intelligent and cunning, so we’d hasten a bet she’s double crossing Wilford and will reveal what she’s really been up to in season three.
Snowpiercer is available to watch on Netflix.
