3 Body Problem teaser trailer reveals epic Netflix series premieres in January

Netflix has unveiled a teaser trailer for 3 Body Problem, an epic series coming from Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss


Game of Thrones TV series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are now working on bringing viewers an epic Netflix series called 3 Body Problem, an adaptation of a trilogy of sci-fi novels written by Chinese author Liu Cixin – and a teaser trailer has arrived online to not only show us some dazzling imagery from the show, but also to reveal that it’s going to reach the Netflix streaming service sometime in January of 2024! You can watch the teaser trailer in the embed above.

The 3 Body Problem was the title of the first novel in Cixin’s Remembrance of Earth’s Past trilogy. The second novel was titled The Dark Forest and the third Death’s End. The novels tell the story of what happens when humanity discovers that we are not alone in the universe and prepares for an alien force arriving from a distant and inhospitable world. The title refers to the aliens’ star system, which has three stars orbiting each other in such a way that an Earth-type planet between them keeps suffering extreme hot and cold temperatures, repeatedly wiping out its intelligent civilizations.

The first eight episodes of the Netflix adaptation has the following synopsis: A young woman’s fateful decision in 1960s China reverberates across space and time to a group of brilliant scientists in the present day. As the laws of nature unravel before their eyes, five former colleagues reunite to confront the greatest threat in humanity’s history.

Benioff and Weiss serve as showrunners on 3 Body Problem, with Alexander Woo (The Terror: Infamy) on board as co-creator, writer, and executive producer. Rian Johnson, Rosamund Pike, Bernadette Caulfield, Ram Bergman, Nena Rodrigue, Robie Uniacke, and Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment are also executive producing, alongside Zhao Jilong, CEO of rights holder The Three-Body Universe, and Lin Qi, the late chairman of rights holder Yoozoo Group.

The series stars Eiza González (Baby Driver, From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series), Jovan Adepo (OverlordThe Stand), Benedict Wong (Doctor StrangeGemini Man), John Bradley (Game of ThronesMoonfall), Tsai Chin (Lucky Grandma, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings), Liam Cunningham (Game of ThronesDog Soldiers), Jess Hong (Inked, The Brokenwood Mysteries), Marlo Kelly (Home and Away, Dare Me), Alex Sharp (How to Talk to Girls at Parties, The Trial of the Chicago 7), Sea Shimooka (Pink Skies Ahead, Arrow), Saamer Usmani (Inventing Anna, Succession), and newcomer Zine Tseng.
