As the world awaits the final season of Game Of Thrones (and its prequel), Netflix are about to take us to another George R. R. Martin world…Nightflyers.
We have to go back to July 2018 since we last heard from this new show. Then we all we knew the show was coming in 2019, today the streaming giants revealed the launch date.
Gone are the dragons as fantasy is replaced by the darkness of space and sci-fi. The U.S have already watched the first season when it aired on SyFy Channel. The response was mixed leaning toward the positive side.
Next month we’ll get the chance to decide yourselves. For now Netflix has released a new Trailer, check it out…
Nightflyers follows eight maverick scientists and a powerful telepath who embark on an expedition to the edge of our solar system aboard The Nightflyer – a ship with a small tight knit crew and a reclusive captain — in the hope of making contact with alien life. But when terrifying and violent events begin to take place they start to question each other — and surviving the journey proves harder than anyone thought.
Nightflyers is executive produced by George R. R. Martin, Brian Nelson, Mike Cahill and Andrew McCarthy serve as executive producers. Gene Klein (Suits), David Bartis (Suits) and Doug Liman (Live. Die. Repeat) of Hypnotic; Alison Rosenzweig (Jacob’s Ladder, Windtalkers) and Michael Gaeta (Jacob’s Ladder) of Gaeta Rosenzweig Films; and Lloyd Ivan Miller and Alice P.
