George R. R. Martin series landing on Netflix is an essential watch for Game of Thrones fans

From the mind behind Game of Thrones...

George R. R. Martin's latest creation will be hitting your computer screens very soon, after Netflix confirmed it will be released outside the United States on 1 February.

Based on the Game of Thrones creator's novella, Nightflyers follows eight maverick scientists and a powerful telepath who 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.

George R. R. Martin is also an executive producer,


Showrunner Jeff Buhler is keen for Nightflyers to get a second series, as he explained to The Verge.

"When I pitched Nightflyers, I pitched a journey that encompassed more than one season.

"The novella essentially outlines where the first season goes and leaves us in a place of total mystery... We have some opportunities to dig a bit deeper into the world."
