Sean Bean's Mr. Wilford will be a series regular.
The 'Snowpiercer' season two teaser comes hot on the heels of ending season one, which left us with a cliffhanging episode 10 this week. Whetting our appetite for what's to come, Netflix has kept our anticipation high by revealing that Sean Bean will be heading back to our screens - this time for a much more expanded-upon role (and hopefully he'll stick around longer than one season too).
Bean plays the character of Mr. Wilford, the billionaire who built Snowpiercer and founder of his company Wilford Industries. His uncredited voice can be heard during a recording in one of the early episodes, but it was quite clearly Bean to anyone who might have been paying enough attention. He and the forceful Melanie Cavill (Jennifer Connelly), who appears to be the one running the train throughout season one, have quite the rocky relationship which is likely about to be further explored.
Here's the teaser for 'Snowpiercer' season two for you.

Netflix's 'Snowpiercer' seems to have enjoyed a successful first season on the streaming platform. Opting to release a new episode every week rather than the arrival of the full series (due to it airing on cable TV in the States) could have worked out in their favour. The final two-hour episode was the most-watched of the series.
There's been no word yet on when we can expect 'Snowpiercer' season two.
