‘3 Body Problem’ set to return for two more seasons

Netflix has confirmed that the hit science fiction series will get to “tell this story through to its epic conclusion”

el problema de los 3 cuerpos

The 3-Body Problem’ is one of the most outstanding science fiction series in recent times. Liu Cixin’s trilogy was adapted for television in China last year, which prompted Netflix to premiere its own in 2024. In May it was confirmed that the series had been renewed for a second season, and now it has been confirmed that there will be a third season - the last of the series.

David Benioff, D.B. Weiss and Alexander Woo, the creators of the series, released a joint statement when the renewal of ‘The 3 Body Problem’ for a second season was confirmed: “We always wanted to get to the final page of the third book, and it’s really, really thrilling to us that we will get to do just that. Ever since we read the last page of Cixin Liu’s magnificent trilogy, we hoped we’d be able to bring the audience to the end of the universe with us. Here we go!”.

The science fiction series will come to an end on Netflix

Netflix confirmed that the series has been renewed in order to “tell the complete story of the seminal book series”. In a press release, writer D.B. Weiss added: “We included a lot of what we loved from the [novels by Cixin Liu] in Season 1, but the vast majority of reasons we wanted to make this show are in Season 2”.

Meanwhile Woo said, “We have some really strong ideas about what to do in a season two, and then it’s a little hazier down the line. But the goal is to get to the end of the trilogy and it seems like it would map out over probably, certainly more than two seasons but beyond that, it’s hard to know exactly”.

Based on the book of the same name by Liu Cixin, 3 Body Problem follows Ye Wenjie (played by Rosalind Chao) in 1960s China whose actions have a profound impact on the lives of a group of modern day scientists. It stars Jovan Adepo, John Bradley, Liam Cunningham, Eiza Gonzalez, Jess Hong, Mario Kelly, Benedict Wong and Jonathan Pryce.
