The Full Nightflyers Trailer Has Landed

It is set to stream on Netflix in Europe in 2019. The first trailer for Nightflyers - the new TV show based on George R.R. Martin's other book - has been released at San Diego Comic Con 2018 and the good news is that it looks really, really promising.

Produced by Universal Cable Productions, Netflix will co-produce and have first-run rights to the series outside the U.S. Jeff Buhler wrote the adaptation for television and is the showrunner and executive producer.

The eight-person crew at the center of Nightflyers includes Gretchen Mol as Dr. Agatha Matheson, Eoin Macken as Karl D'Branin, David Ajala as Roy Eris, Sam Strike as Thale, Maya Eshet as Lommie, Angus Sampson as Rowan, Jodie Turner-Smith as Melantha Jhirl, and Brian F. O'Byrne as Auggie.

Nightflyers takes place in 2093, and follows a team of scientists aboard the space craft, the Nightflyer.

While Martin won't be involved directly with the series (he's under an exclusive contract with HBO) he is credited as an executive producer. And though it uses the framework of Martin's written work, it has a different setting.

They hope to make contact with a race of aliens who may be able to save Planet Earth.

Considering Martin is behind the story, it'll be hard for viewers to resist comparing the project to Game Of Thrones.

Syfy dropped a never-before-seen trailer during the "Nightflyers" panel at Comic-Con on Thursday. He previously described the show as Alfred Hitchcock's "Pyscho [but] in space", basically like "a haunted house story on a starship".
