The Three-Body Problem, the story of humanity’s first contact with an alien civilization inspired by the triliogy novel series of Liu Cixin, will be adapted as a Netflix series from David Benioff, D.B. Weiss and Alexander Woo.


The books portrays a more advanced Earth-like planet in the next star system, whose universe consists of three solar-type stars orbiting each other in an extremely complex orbital system, the computation of which is the three-body problem. Can our Earth come up with a plan to repeal an invasion from a more advanced civilization in the time it takes them to cross a galaxy from their planet to ours. Can the people of Earth work together if we can not be sure which side each person is on. Earth races time and space searching for a solution.

WHAT THE WHAT??????????

Filming completed for Chinese TV adaptation of The Three-Body Problem

Oh, this is the 24 Episode Live-Action TV version filmed in Chinese for a Chinese audience. It took about six months to film and was in development for more than four years. I wonder how they handled "Diversity" since this is a story has a World scope, not just a Chinese scope. I should watch "The Wandering Earth" on Netflix to get an idea, since it is another story written by Cixin Liu and made in China, that focuses on Global matters.

An animated adaptation of the novel, announced last year as a project by Chinese online video sharing platform Bilibili, is scheduled for release next year.

Netflix better get their butts in gear or everybody will know the story and the market will be saturated. As far as I can tell, the Netflix version is still in it's earliest developmental stages.

There is a new trailer for The Three-Body Problem TV series, unfortunately is not the one being released by Netflix, but the one that is being released from the Chinese company Tencent.


Edit: at 1:33, it should be "Only the physics we know", not "We only think physics"

This version and the animated Chinese version will probably be released long before the Netflix version.
