3 Body Problem is helmed by Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, along with True Blood writer and The Terror: Infamy showrunner Alexander Woo.

According to Netflix's official synopsis, it follows the story of "a young woman’s fateful decision in 1960s China" which "reverberates across space and time to a group of brilliant scientists in the present day. As the laws of nature unravel before their eyes, five former colleagues reunite to confront the greatest threat in humanity’s history."

The cryptic trailer highlights the show's sleek production in short clips while a voiceover bellows, ending with "life looks for life."

The Netflix series is adapted from Liu Cixin's Hugo Award-winning book trilogy The Three-Body Problem (The Remembrance of Earth's Past Trilogy), the first of which tells "the story of humanity's first contact with an alien civilization," as Peter Friedlander, Netflix VP of Original Series, wrote on the company's blog back when it was officially announced in 2020.

Among the executive producers are Knives Out writer-director Rian Johnson and Brad Pitt. Liu Cixin and English translator Ken Liu also serve as consulting producers for the series. Liu Cixin also penned the novel The Wandering Earth, which was made into a movie that was aqcuired by Netflix in 2019.

The cast features Jess Hong, Benedict Wong, Eiza González, Jovan Adepo, Alex Sharp, John Bradley, Saamer Usmani, Liam Cunningham, Rosalind Chao, Jonathan Pryce, Marlo Kelly, Sea Shimooka, Ben Schnetzer, and Zine Tseng.
