Final Warning: “3 Body Problem” Trailer Drops, Unveiling New Saga From “Game of Thrones” Creators

The final trailer for easily one of the biggest upcoming series of the year has arrived. Netflix’s 3 Body Problem makes first contact in a mere three weeks, the first new series from Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss since their HBO juggernaut ended in 2019. Benioff, Weiss, and True Blood writer/producer Alexander Woo have adapted their hugely ambitious series from author Liu Cixin’s “Remembrance of Earth’s Past” trilogy centered on how humanity preps for a coming alien invasion. 

“What we are hoping to do is to convey the experience — if not necessarily the exact details — of the novel onto the screen,” Woo said at CES in Las Vegas this past January. “What stayed, we hope, is the sense of wonderment and the sense of scope, of scale, where the problems are no longer just the problems of an individual or even a nation, but of an entire species.”

3 Body Problem is centered on the momentous decision made by a young woman in 1960s China that echoes across time. In the present day, a group of scientists and a detective with unusual methods will band together to try to unpuzzle what is happening when the laws of physics crumble and humanity is facing a potential extinction-level event. 

This sweeping sci-fi adventure offers Benioff and Weiss another immense world conceived with brilliant detail, trading in George R. R. Martin’s fantasy realm for Cixin’s expansive sci-fi world.

And once again, Benioff and Weiss have another stellar ensemble cast to work with, including former Game of Thrones alums Liam Cunningham, Jonathan Pryce, and John Bradley, along with Jovan Adepo, Rosalind Chao, Eiza González, Jess Hong, Marlo Kelly, Alex Sharp, Sea Shimooka, Zine Tseng, Saamer Usmani, and Benedict Wong.

Check out the final trailer below. 3 Body Problem arrives on Netflix on March 21.
