More 3 Body Problem Is Coming to Netflix

The Netflix adaptation of Cixin Liu’s The Three-Body Problem—styled, for the streamer, as 3 Body Problem—isn’t over yet. But it’s also not clear how much more of it is coming. A piece on Netflix’s Tudum says the series “will return for more all-new episodes.” But it never uses the phrase “season two,” saying instead:

Netflix’s chief content officer Bela Bajaria confirmed that 3 Body Problem will continue to take viewers through the full journey of this epic saga. All other details are under wraps including the number of seasons and episodes which will be revealed at a later date.

This is, let it be said, an odd weird way to extend the life of one of the things we used to call a “television show.” Variety‘s piece about the news has the headline, “3 Body Problem Picked Up for Additional Episodes as Show Prepares to End,” which makes me feel like someone at Variety is staring off into the middle distance while taking a drag on a clove cigarette, thinking, “Aren’t we all just preparing to end in one way or another?”

At any rate, 3 Body Problem isn’t done for yet. The adaptation comes from Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss along with Alexander Woo, and the creators seem pleased with the news, telling Tudum, “We’re thrilled that we get to tell this story through to its epic conclusion.” Netflix’s VP of Scripted Series, Peter Friedlander, got more specific, saying the adaptation “will soar to never-before-seen heights as they tackle the rest of the mind-blowing journey through Death’s End.”

Said mind-blowing journey follows a group of scientists as they try to save the world. Or, as Netflix puts it, the show “explores how humanity chooses to respond to its gravest threat.” The first season of the show starred Rosalind Chao, John Bradley, Jovan Adepo, Liam Cunningham, Eiza González, Benedict Wong, Jonathan Pryce, and many more.

It’ll be back … eventually. For some number of episodes and/or seasons. icon-paragraph-end
