Nightflyers is an upcoming American science fiction television series on Syfy based on the novella of the same name and the series of short stories by George R. R. Martin that is set to premiere on December 2, 2018.[1]




In 2016, it was announced that Syfy would be developing a series based on Martin's novella. Later in 2017, it was announced that the series would rather be based on the film adaptation from 1987.[3] George R. R. Martin will not be involved directly with the series due to his exclusive contract with HBO, but will be credited as an executive producer.[4]


The series started its production in early 2018 on location in Limerick, Ireland, and also at the Limerick-based Troy Studios, with Daniel Cerone serving as the showrunner.[5] Cerone also serves as a series executive producer, alongside Gene Klein, David Bartis, and Doug Liman of Hypnotic, Alison Rosenzweig and Michael Gaeta of Gaeta Rosenzweig Films, and Lloyd Ivan Miller and Alice P. Neuhauser of Lloyd Ivan Miller Productions.[2][6][better source needed]
