‘3 Body Problem’: Netflix Pushes Premiere Date, Releases Another Trailer

3 Body Problem will launch on Netflix nearly four years after first being revealed.

But fans excited for the sci-drama series from Game of Thrones showrunners will have to wait a little bit longer than previously expected.

More from Deadline

The series, which comes from David Benioff and D.B. Weiss as well as Alexander Woo (The Terror: Infamy) will launch on March 21.

Last June, when Netflix first unveiled a trailer for the series, which is based on Chinese author Liu Cixin’s sci-fi book trilogy, the streamer said the series would launch in January 2024.

3 Body Problem is the story of humanity’s first contact with an alien civilization.

It follows a young woman, whose fateful decision in 1960s China reverberates across space and time into the present day. When the laws of nature inexplicably unravel before their eyes, a close-knit group of brilliant scientists join forces with an unflinching detective to confront the greatest threat in humanity’s history.

The cast includes Jovan Adepo, John Bradley, Liam Cunningham, Eiza González, Jess Hong, Marlo Kelly, Alex Sharp, Sea Shimooka, Zine Tseng, Saamer Usmani, Benedict Wong, Jonathan Pryce, Rosalind Chao, Ben Schnetzer and Eve Ridley.

Oscar-nominated director Derek Tsang (Better Days) is among the directors for the series.

Benioff and Weiss serve as showrunners and executive produces. Woo co-created the series with Benioff and Weiss and is executive producer and writer. Exec producers also include Bernadette Caulfield, Rian Johnson, Ram Bergman, Nena Rodrigue, Lin Qi, Zhao Jilong as well as Brad Pitt, and Dede Gardner’s Plan B Entertainment and Jeremy Kleiner’s company along with Rosamund Pike and Robie Uniacke for Primitive Streak.
