First Look: George R.R. Martin novella Nightflyers to be adapted by Netflix

George R.R. Martin’s works will be seeing an television adaptation once again, as his novella¬†Nightflyers is set to arrive exclusively to Netflix.

Set sometime in the future on the eve of the Earth’s destruction, a crew of explorers pilot the most advanced ship known to man in a bid to reach a strange alien spacecraft that may just hold the answers to humanity’s survival. However, things are not as they seem, as the crew realise that their mission may bring more than they had ever anticipated. You can check it out for yourself in the trailer below:

While no official release date has been announced, we can expect to see Nightflyers later in 2018, exclusively on Netflix.
