Nightflyers is a 1980 novella and a 1985 short story collection by George R. R. Martin,

reportedly is in the spirit of the story and based more on the screenplay for the 1987 movie

a group of scientists who begin a space voyage to find a mysterious alien creature, and in the process are victimized by the ship's malevolent computer
The series will be shot in the Ireland and premiere in July 2018

it has been picked up for a full ten-episode season order, with a substantial budget, one that should allow them to create a show that looks as good as modern audiences expect. They showed me drawings of some of the set designs, some very cool sets. They even showed me the NIGHTFLYER herself:

I just wanted to use this as an opportunity to say how underrated Event Horizon is.

Trailer is out. And yeah budget they lavished on this is almost certainly why they killed The Expanse.

Jesus, that is some high budget looking shit for Syfy. Guess it makes sense now.

Btw, that trailer really felt like a movie trailer, no?

Yeah but it's for a 10-episode series. They must've fleshed out the novella A LOT.

not read the book, but don't see how single ship horror story will keep going that long

read that it most likely has a 2 season deal, unless it crashes hard

someone was telling me this is going to be an anthology with new cast next season.
i couldn't find anything to support that

going to be interesting to see how this plays out

Syfy is set to release its 10-episode Nightflyers series in December, and it's going to make sure you can watch it quickly and easily. The first episode will drop Sunday December 2nd, and episodes two through five will follow daily through Thursday, December 6th. Episodes six through 10 will air between Sunday and Thursday the following week. Additionally, Syfy is also releasing each episode across all of its platforms when they broadcast on TV, and you'll be able to catch the first two for free even if you don't have a cable log-in.

i tried to support Dark Matter, Killjoys and Expanse on their app, but the ads are utter garbage

First episode is always funky. Even GOT first episode was odd compared to the rest of the series.
Things like camera work, costume, set, actors being comfortable in the roles all take several episodes to work out.
I'll wait a few days until I can see several in before I rant that Syfy dropped Expanse and Dark Matter for this shit.

Holy fuck did their mission get off to a shitty start. The captain should have aborted within the first 5 minutes.

First episode was alright. IMO, things escalated way too quickly. Would've worked better if we could have been eased into the chaos. But I guess Syfy was worried they would bleed viewers fast if they didn't ramp up things asap.

Third episode is out. No one is watching this? It's not terrible.

Oh well, so much for my theory that the captain is the ship's AI. I suppose that would've been too obvious.

Still waiting to hop into this, sadly life events delaying that (moving/unpacking blows).

I watched it, sort of. Will try again tonight, I assume with now a 4th episode. Maybe this time I won't have a zombie horde swarm me in 7d2d while I watch it.
