Netflix’s final ‘3 Body Problem’ trailer promises ‘they are coming’

The final trailer for 3 Body Problem, Netflix’s anticipated adaptation of Liu Cixin’s novel is here, and it’s filled with intense conversations about consciousness expanding across worlds and the very real possibility of war — but with whom? And from where?

In the trailer, Benedict Wong’s detective Da Shi speaks to his boss, Wade (Liam Cunningham), of a sequence detected in 1977 called “the wow signal.” Meanwhile, an ominous moment has physicist Ye Wenjie (Rosalind Chao) telling her friend and colleague Saul Durand (Jovan Adepo), “They are coming.” And it’s all sent to an unsettling, fitting version of “This Bitter Earth” by Dinah Washington.

With Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, and True Blood writer Alexander Woo running the show, it’s best to expect the epic. The series tracks a global mystery across time, with scientists mysteriously dying and a foreboding countdown showing up for others, and the discovery of something in 1960s China having universal repercussions.

3 Body Problem is streaming on Netflix from March 21.
