Netflix has released the official trailer for its upcoming sci-fi psychological thriller Nightflyers, based on George R.R. Martin’s novella.
Set in deep space on the eve of Earth’s destruction, the new series revolves around a crew of explorers, consisting of eight scientists and a telepath, who 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.
The cast ensemble includes Miranda Raison, Gretchen Mol, Eoin Macken, Jodie Turner-Smith, David Ajala, and Sam Strike.
The trailer, set to the rhythms of “Devil’s Gonna Git You (Epic Trailer Version) by J2, gives viewers a glimpse into the horrors that the crew The Nightflyer face when they embark on their mission. A “malfunction” kills several people and leads the survivors to the conclusion that someone/something is taking control of the ship and that they can’t return to Earth.
According to the streaming service, Nightflyers is “coming soon”, without revealing a release date, though.
