Syfy has set its plans for the release of the space horror drama series “Nightflyers” based on the novella by “Game of Thrones” author George R.R. Martin. Eoin Macken, David Ajala, Gretchen Mol, Jodie Turner-Smith, Angus Sampson, Sam Strike, Maya Eshet, and Brían F. O’Byrne star.
The network will run the series’ first five episodes nightly from Sunday December 2nd through Thursday December 6th, take a break for two days, then air the remaining five episodes from Sunday December 9th through Thursday December 13th. Weekend marathons will give fans an additional opportunity to catch up on the series.
Set in the year 2093, the story follows a team of scientists aboard The Nightflyer, the most advanced ship ever built which embarks on a journey to find other life forms. Their mission takes them to the edge of the solar system, and to the edge of insanity, as they realize true horror isn’t waiting for them in outer space—it’s already on their ship.
That’s not the only sci-fi series setting dates today. History has set a January 8th premiere for period UFO drama series “Project Blue Book”. Robert Zemeckis produces the ten-episode series starring Aidan Gillen and Michael Malarkey.
