Long after perhaps many fans had assumed it, given the show’s uncertain future after its third season, it’s now official: the recently revealed fourth season of the beloved sci-fi anthology series will be its last.
Entertainment Weekly dropped the news, alongside a brand new trailer for the final season, which reveals that Book 4 will switch protagonists once again to two new passengers on the titular train. Ryan and Min, young friends who bonded over a love of music (and a dream to turn that love into a career together), find themselves thrust onto the mysterious Infinity Train with the same number branded onto their hands.

The season four announcement last month seemed to be a sign that there’d been enough interest, but now we know that in actuality, it got fans a chance to give the show one last farewell.
Infinity Train’s final season will begin streaming on HBO Max in the U.S. starting April 15. The show airs on Stan in Australia, although a release date for the new season is yet to be confirmed.
