The upcoming Syfy series Nightflyers is based on a novella by George R.R. Martin (Game of Thrones) and, in a fun bit of trivia, is the most expensive show Syfy has ever produced.
The more you know, right? And today we have an all-new look at the upcoming series via a new teaser trailer that amps up the tense and horror of the show.
The series is executive produced by Jeff Buhler alongside Hypnotic’s Gene Klein (Suits), David Bartis (Mr. and Mrs. Smith), Doug Liman (Suits), Alison Rosenzweig, Michael Gaeta, Lloyd Ivan Miller, and Alice P. Neuhauser.
Andrew McCarthy is a producer-director, with Mike Cahill helming the pilot, and Martin is credited as exec producer. The series stars Gretchen Mol (Boardwalk Empire), Angus Sampson (Insidious), Sam Strike (Leatherface), Eoin Macken (The Night Shift), Maya Eshet (Teen Wolf), Jodie Turner-Smith (The Last Ship), David Ajala (Fast & Furious 6), and Brían F. O’Byrne (Million Dollar Baby).
Nightflyers hits Syfy this fall in the U.S. and will air on Netflix everywhere else.
Eight maverick scientists and a powerful telepath embark on an expedition to the edge of our solar system aboard The Nightflyer – a ship with a small, tight-knit crew and a reclusive captain – in the hope of making contact with alien life. But when terrifying and violent events begin to take place, they start to question each other – and surviving the journey proves harder than anyone thought.
