Get Your First Look at the Series George R. R. Martin Calls “‘Psycho’ in Space”!

As fans wait patiently for the final season of Game of Thrones, Syfy released the first trailer for its adaptation of Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin’s 1980 novella Nightflyers.

 

Described in the trailer as ‘just fucking awesome,’ Nightflyers follows a crew of scientists on a mission to attempt contact with aliens, however their plan goes very, very wrong and the situation soon becomes violent and dangerous. Fans of Martin are no strangers to the concepts of extreme peril and brutality, so this sounds pretty much on the money. 

 

Martin himself appears in the trailer, describing the upcoming series “a haunted house story on a starship…It’s Psycho in space. I can’t wait to actually see it come alive on the screen.”

 

The series, which is produced by Universal Cable Productions and adapted by Jeff Buhler stars Eoin Macken, Sam Strike, Maya Eshet, Angus Sampson, and Jodie Turner-Smith.
