During one of Apex’s routine scavenging missions Grace and Simon find themselves separated from their group, and they realize that they’ll have to rely on one another if they want a shot at actually surviving the train’s dangerous cars. Deadset as they are on clinging to Apex’s way of life, when they end up meeting Hazel, an optimistic young girl traversing the train with her gorilla friend Tuba, it isn’t long before Grace and Simon begin to realize that there might just be another way to survive and thrive on the Infinity Train that doesn’t revolve around getting over on others.
The season's full title was revealed on the Infinity Train panel during Comic-Con@Home 2020.

- According to Owen Dennis, Infinity Train was originally planned to premiere on HBO Max from the beginning, but due to the Warner and AT&T lawsuit the streaming service's release was delayed from its original 2019 launch date. This led to the first two seasons premiering on Cartoon Network instead.
- When Book 1 ended, Book 3 was already in the works.
- Where Book 1 focused on the mystery of the train and Book 2 focused on an adventure set on the train, Owen Dennis describes Book 3 as a tragedy. Tragedies in the classical sense involve an intense amount of sorrow that befalls the main character, with a key element being it is the choices of said character that, intentionally or not, lead to their downfall. In the case of Book 3, tragedy befalls both Grace and Simon. Grace's actions cause her to ruin her relationship with Hazel and ultimately leads to the death of Simon, her best friend. Meanwhile, Simon rejects the chance to change when it is repeatedly offered to him, ruining his relationship with Grace and dying as a result of his failure to change. Dennis notes that while Book 3's ending is slightly uplifting for Grace, there is still an intense loss felt: Dennis notes that when he watches Book 3 he mostly feels sadness.

- Owen Dennis on Twitter: "Infinity Train was supposed to come out on HBO Max a year ago, but it didn't exist yet because of the lawsuit with Warner/AT&T, so everything got held up. The show is still made under CNS though, so we have the same rules we've always had but the money comes from HBO Max." August 13, 2020.
