The Three-Body Problem: Netflix has finished filming its ambitious new sci-fi series based on Liu Cixin's The Three-Body Problem trilogy. True Blood's Alexander Woo and Game of Thrones David Benioff and D. B. Weiss are in charge of the series, which is led by Woo. B. Weiss. As of December 2022, here's everything we know about the 2023 show.
The Three-Body Universe and Yoozoo Group made a deal with Netflix for the rights to make an English-language version of the books in September 2020. The sci-fi drama will be made by the Game of Thrones duo's production company, Bighead Littlehead. It is one of many projects they have with Netflix.
What is the Release Date of The Three-body Problem?
We don't have any official information about when Three-Body Problem will be on Netflix, but since the first season will end in late 2022, it won't be until at least 2023.
The Three-body Problem: Storyline
The three books in Liu Cixin's trilogy tell the story of the first time humans met aliens from the planet Trisolaris and how tensions between the two species grew over a long period of time. The Netflix show is likely to start with the first book of the trilogy, Remembrance of Earth's Past.
The story takes place in China during the Cultural Revolution when scientists commit suicide because they are involved with the mysterious society Frontiers of Science. Without giving away too much, one of the main characters, Ye Wenjie, is a scientist who loses faith in the government and people in general.

He then helps the Trisolarians find Earth and get ready to invade. They would need a few hundred years to get to Earth, so people still have time. Years later, Ye is in charge of a secret group of people who want an alien invasion to happen.
The group has split into two groups: those who want Trisolarians to invade and improve humanity by force, and those who want Trisolarians to kill everyone on Earth.
The aliens, on the other hand, have been spying in different ways over the years, which has led to mysterious deaths, suicides, and disappearances of important scientists. As time goes on, the war gets closer and more dangerous.
