While you can’t expect the same production value on a Syfy show as you would from HBO, the network has done a fantastic job at their set and costume production from what we’ve seen for ‘Nightflyers.’ The novella that this new series is based upon was originally released in 1980 and has already been adapted into a feature film. However, Syfy is expanding on the idea to give us a more immersive story.

Set in the year 2093, NIGHTFLYERS follows a team of scientists aboard The Nightflyer, the most advanced ship ever built, as they embark on a journey to find other life forms. Their mission takes them to the edge of the solar system, and to the edge of insanity, as they realize true horror isn’t waiting for them in outer space—it’s already on their ship. NIGHTFLYERS stars Eoin Macken, David Ajala, Gretchen Mol, Jodie Turner-Smith, Angus Sampson, Sam Strike, Maya Eshet, and Brían F. O’Byrne. NIGHTFLYERS is based on the novella by George R.R. Martin, who also serves as an executive producer, and is produced by Universal Cable Productions and co-produced by Netflix. Jeff Buhler wrote the adaptation for television and is the showrunner and executive producer, alongside Gene Klein, David Bartis and Doug Liman of Hypnotic who also executive produce. Brian Nelson, Mike Cahill, and Andrew McCarthy serve as executive producers. Alison Rosenzweig and Michael Gaeta of Gaeta Rosenzweig Films; and Lloyd Ivan Miller and Alice P. Neuhauser of Lloyd Ivan Miller Productions also serve as executive producers.
