3 Body Problem is coming to Netflix in 2023. At its online-only event Tudum 2022, the world’s biggest subscription-based video streaming service revealed that its live-action adaptation of the renowned Chinese sci-fi novel The Three-Body Problem will premiere sometime next year. Alongside, we got a behind-the-scenes look at 3 Body Problem, which wrapped filming recently and is now in post-production. Created by executive producers David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, and Alexander Woo, 3 Body Problem chronicles the discovery of extraterrestrial life in the universe. Benioff and Weiss are best known for creating and running Game of Thrones for all eight seasons.
While the books — The Three-Body Problem is part of a trilogy — are largely centred on Chinese protagonists, Netflix’s 3 Body Problem is taking a more global approach. 3 Body Problem stars Jovan Adepo (Overlord), John Bradley (Game of Thrones), Liam Cunningham (Game of Thrones), Eiza González (Baby Driver), Jess Hong (Creamerie), Marlo Kelly (Dare Me), Alex Sharp (The Hustle), Sea Shimooka (Arrow), Zine Tseng (On a Whim), Saamer Usmani (Inventing Anna), Benedict Wong (Doctor Strange), Jonathan Pryce (The Two Popes), Rosalind Chao (Better Things), Ben Schnetzer (Y: The Last Man), and Eve Ridley (Casualty).
