Nightflyers is a supernatural thriller based on the novella by George R.R. Martin (Game of Thrones) and the 1987 film. Jeff Buhler (Jacob’s Ladder) wrote the adaptation, is showrunner and executive producer. The series 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 tightknit 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.
