Comic-Con 2018: George RR Martin's Nightflyers Adaptation Gets First Trailer

Comic-Con 2018: George RR Martin's Nightflyers Adaptation Gets First Trailer

The ten-episode series will be airing on Syfy in the USA, and will hit Netflix in the rest of the world at some point in 2019 - though there's no official date yet.

Although Martin has kept fans updated with the status of Nightflyers since news of its production was first reported, his involvement with Nightflyers is minimal to none.

Nightflyers is a novella by George RR Martin, writer of the Song of Ice and Fire series which was adapted into HBO's Game of Thrones.

The series is based on author George R.R. Martin's novella and the 1987 film of the same name. So, it will go in different directions but hopefully keep the theme of it and some of the principal characters, and I'm excited to see it.

At least 8 dead after tourist boat incident
A dive team from Western Taney County was in the water and a team from the Missouri State Highway Patrol was on the way, as well. Fire Protection District reported a boat dock emergency near Branson Belle Dock just after 7:00 this evening.

Rounding off the cast are David Ajala (Fast & Furious 6) as Roy Eris, Sam Strike (EastEnders) as Thale, Maya Eshet (Teen Wolf) as Lommie, Angus Sampson (Fargo) as Rowan, Jodie Turner-Smith (The Last Ship) as Melantha Jhirl and Brían F. O'Byrne (Million Dollar Baby) as Auggie. Rather than swords-and-sauciness, this is a space-and-psychology sci-fi saga - and you can take an early look in this first trailer.

The ten-part Netflix series is set in the near future and centres on a group of scientists who journey on the most advanced ship in the galaxy, The Nightflyer, on a mission to the edge of the solar system. Terrifying and violent events begin to take place, testing the loyalties and mental fortitude of those aboard the titular ship. Martin described it as "Psycho in space".

The trailer as well as the plot summary that Syfy has released offers a similar premise but with a bit of a twist. It's unclear when the show will debut on Netflix.
