3 BODY PROBLEM Trailer Teases an Epic Sci-Fi Mystery and a Brewing War

When it was announced that Game of Thrones’ TV creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss would develop shows for Netflix, many wondered just how big they would go. Well, thanks to the new trailer for the upcoming series 3 Body Problem, now we know. This is clearly sci-fi on an epic scale that’s worthy of a follow-up effort to one of the most popular shows in history. 3 Body Problem is based on the novel by Cixin Liu, which is the first in a trilogy of books. The duo teamed up with True Blood’s Alexander Woo to create this series. You can check out the full trailers for 3 Body Problem, as well as read the official synopsis right after the first clip.

The official synopsis for 3 Body Problem shares:

The story begins in 1960s China when a young woman makes a fateful decision that reverberates across space and time into the present day. When the laws of nature as we know them inexplicably unravel, a tight-knit group of brilliant scientists must join forces with an unflinching detective to stop humanity’s greatest threat.

Here’s what series co-executive producer Alexander Woo had to say about 3 Body Problem to Tudum:

What we are hoping to do is to convey the experience — if not necessarily the exact details — of the novel onto the screen. 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.

Although the story centers on a deeply immersive VR world, this latest trailer suggests something much larger, and far more mysterious, is in play. So just why exactly have all the prominent scientists gone missing? And who are They? We’ll have to wait until March 21, 2024, when 3 Body Problem drops on Netflix.
