“Nightflyers is a haunted-house story on a starship. It’s Psycho in space,” says George R. R. Martin, who wrote the novella on which the series is based.
The new series from Syfy, premiering this fall, tells the story of eight scientists and a telepath who take a trip to the edge of the solar system aboard The Nightflyer, which comes with a cliquey crew and a reclusive captain.
The team hopes to make contact with alien life, but in the words of the old adage: “be careful what you wish for.”
Nightflyers stars Eoin Macken as Karl D’Branin along with Sam Strike, Maya Ehset, Angus Sampson, Jodie Turner-Smith, Gretchen Mol, David Ajala and Brían F. O’Byrne.
The series comes from Universal Cable Productions.
