Netflix has ordered THE THREE-BODY PROBLEM to series, an adaptation of the book trilogy by Liu Cixin.

The series is “the story of humanity’s first contact with an alien civilization.” David Benioff & D.B. Weiss (GAME OF THRONES), and Alexander Woo (THE TERROR: INFAMY) will be crafting the television take of the story. Cixin has signed on to be a consulting producer of the show, as did Ken Liu, who translated two of the books into English.

“I have the greatest respect for and faith in the creative team adapting THE THREE-BODY PROBLEM for television audiences,” said Cixin in a statement. “I set out to tell a story that transcends time and the confines of nations, cultures and races; one that compels us to consider the fate of humankind as a whole. It is a great honor as an author to see this unique sci-fi concept travel and gain fandom across the globe and I am excited for new and existing fans all over the world to discover the story on Netflix.”

“Liu Cixin’s trilogy is the most ambitious science-fiction series we’ve read, taking readers on a journey from the 1960s until the end of time, from life on our pale blue dot to the distant fringes of the universe,” Benioff and Weiss said. “We look forward to spending the next years of our lives bringing this to life for audiences around the world.”

Added Woo: “It’s a privilege to be adapting one of the great masterpieces of Chinese science-fiction. THE THREE-BODY PROBLEM trilogy combines so many things I love: rich, multi-layered characters and true existential stakes – all told as an elegant and deeply human allegory. I’m thrilled to kick off my partnership with Netflix with this accomplished creative team.”
