The trilogy, consisting of three books titled Remembrance of Earth’s Past, The Dark Forest, and Death’s End, tells the story of humanity’s first contact with an alien civilization and is set against a sprawling backdrop. The first book tells the story of Ye Wenjie, who following her father’s death at the hands of the Red Guards during the Cultural Revolution attempts to help aliens invade Earth, while different factions on Earth plan different ways of welcoming the extra-terrestrials.

“Liu Cixin’s trilogy is the most ambitious science-fiction series we’ve read, taking readers on a journey from the 1960s until the end of time, from life on our pale blue dot to the distant fringes of the universe. We look forward to spending the next years of our lives bringing this to life for audiences around the world,” said Benioff and Weiss.

Cixin joined the project as a consulting producer alongside Ken Liu, who penned the English translation for The Three-Body Problem and Death’s End. Alexander Woo (The Terror: Infamy) will write and executive produce alongside Benioff and Weiss. Rian Johnson (The Last Jedi, Knives Out) will also executive produce along with his producing partner Ram Bergman.

“I have the greatest respect for and faith in the creative team adapting The Three-Body Problem for television audiences. I set out to tell a story that transcends time and the confines of nations, cultures, and races; one that compels us to consider the fate of humankind as a whole. It is a great honor as an author to see this unique sci-fi concept travel and gain fandom across the globe and I am excited for new and existing fans all over the world to discover the story on Netflix,” said Cixin.
