We spoke to the production team of Tomorrow Studios, an ITV Studios Partnership, about the fourth season of Snowpiercer, an adaptation of French graphic novel Le Transperceneige (also adapted as a feature film by Bong Joon-Ho). The series follows the last remnants of humanity aboard the Snowpiercer, a gigantic, perpetually moving train that circles the Earth, which has become a frozen wasteland following a modern-day ice age.
The show has recently wrapped its fourth and final season, a season for which albert sustainable production practices were fully embraced. ITV Studios made the push for these sustainable practices in its international productions as a key focus in 2022 to see how global productions would fare.
While the fourth season was the first to be albert certified, the previous seasons had already been employing sustainable practices such as repurposing sets from season to season.
As the main setting of the show is on board the titular train, there was little need to make sets from scratch and over 90% of sets and props were recycled across the seasons.
After the wrap of season four, a concerted effort was made to give the set, props and costume a second life through selling them to other productions, or giving items to the crew.
