I really didn’t have any expectations for the new George R. R. Martin series Nightflyers, it sort of kept off my radar but this new Comic-Con trailer gives me some hope it might be worth my time.
It has a little bit of Alien, Solaris, Event Horizon, The Thing and even the Shining in there.
Given Martin’s knack for character developed as seen in Game of Thrones, I’m curious to see if this show can act as a nice science fiction replacement as Thrones winds down and spin-offs are set to take over.
Who can they trust when humanity is at stake?
From the mind of George R. R. Martin, Nightflyers is a psychological thriller, set in deep space on the eve of Earth’s destruction. A crew of explorers journey on the most advanced ship in the galaxy, The Nightflyer, and work to intercept a mysterious alien spacecraft that might hold the key to the planet’s survival. As the crew nears their destination however, they discover that mysterious forces and even their own minds are working against them.
Domestically the ten episodes of Nightflyers will be airing on SyFy, while in the UK and Ireland it will be on Netflix.
