Netflix’s Confusing ‘3 Body Problem’ Announcement Clarified By The Showrunners

The writers’ team explained the plans for the show’s future.

Netflix recently confirmed that ‘3 Body Problem’ will get ‘additional episodes’ to ‘finish the story’ but didn’t specify whether the show would go beyond Season 2.

Showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff recently spoke with The Hollywood Reporter to clear the air about their plans. Weiss said:

“We knew going into this how many hours we need to tell the rest of the story because we’ve got a roadmap through to the end. And we have what we need to get to the end as intended from when we started.”

Benioff explained:

“By the time we finish with the show, it will be seven years we’ve devoted to it. We’re now at a place where we get to tell the rest of the story, and, yes, we have enough time to tell the rest of the story the way we want to and that’s immensely gratifying.”

The Script For New Stories Is Almost Ready

The writers previously mentioned that fully adapting Liu Cixin’s novel trilogy would likely take three or four seasons. Weiss shared with Vulture:

“We’ve done a good amount of work on the second season. At this point, the shape of it is pretty detailed in terms of character journeys and who lives, who dies, who goes where, how things function. The rest of it … there are three books, so that seems to suggest three seasons. The third book is very long, which might suggest more than three seasons, but we’ve already used a fair amount of the third book. It’s hard to know until you get there.”

‘3 Body Problem’ Season 1 focused on a group of scientists’ struggles with alien invasion and reportedly cost Netflix around $160 million to make. It featured Jovan Adepo as Dr. Saul Durand, John Bradley as Jack Rooney, Rosalind Chao as Dr. Ye Wenjie, and Liam Cunningham as Thomas Wade.

The show entered Netflix’s most-watched list in its second week.
