George R.R. Martin’s ‘Nightflyers’ Gets Terrifying First Trailer

Comic-Con attendees were treated to the first full trailer for the much-anticipated show, which is based on a 1980 short story by Game of Thrones author George RR Martin.

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

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.

The show is set aboard the titular spaceship Nightflyer, although it seems like its mission is slightly different in the show compared to the books - instead of making first contact, the Nightflyer is actually the last hope of a dying humanity, exploring beyond Earth's reach in the hopes of finding the key to survival.

Trump did this in Helsinki , too, and executed a convoluted walkback of those remarks on Tuesday, saying he misspoke in Finland. He denied Russia's accusations and expressed deep concern that the White House failed to defend him.

Martin himself has not been heavily involved in the adaptation of this story for Netflix, he is rather busy working on up to four spin-off series for Game of Thrones, whilst supposedly finishing the long-awaited next installment of his A Song of Ice and Fire series called The Winds of Winter.

Nightflyers debuts on SyFy Network this fall. Martin described it as "Psycho in space".

Syfy has posted several brief teasers highlighting the horrors contained on the Nightflyer but has yet to release a full-length trailer.

The eight-person crew at the center of Nightflyers includes Gretchen Mol as Dr. Agatha Matheson, Eoin Macken as Karl D'Branin, David Ajala as Roy Eris, Sam Strike as Thale, Maya Eshet as Lommie, Angus Sampson as Rowan, Jodie Turner-Smith as Melantha Jhirl, and Brian F. O'Byrne as Auggie.
