Nightflyers Trailer Unveils George RR Martin's Netflix Sci-Fi Show

Are you excited to see what Netflix can do with Nightflyers, has anyone read the novella that has any strong opinions on the story?

SYFY has released the full first trailer for Nightflyers, the horror sci-fi series based on George R.R. Martin's (Game of Thrones) novella.

The big budget series for Syfy in the United States is being produced by NBC Universal and Universal Cable Productions, along with Wild Atlantic Pictures. Jacob's Ladder scribe Jeff Buhler wrote the adaptation, and The Blacklist's Daniel Cerone serves as showrunner.

The new trailer shows more of the mysterious deaths on board the spaceship called Nightflyer. It's still set in space, but it's more near-future space, set in the solar system, and it has a considerably larger cast.

George R.R. Martin is credited as an executive producer for the series, which stars Gretchen Mol, Eoin Macken, David Ajala, Sam Strike, Maya Eshet, Angus Sampson, Jodie Turner-Smith, Brían, F. O'Byrne, Phillip Rhys, and Gwynne McElveen. And though it uses the framework of Martin's written work, it has a different setting. It follows a group of scientists as they embark on a mission to find a race of alien nomads. The bad news is that it looks nothing like Game of Thrones.

When terrifying and violent events begin to take place on the ship, the crew begin to question each other and surviving the journey will prove to be much harder than anyone thought. Nightflyers debuts on Syfy this fall. Martin described it as "Psycho in space".
