3 Min Read

3 Body problem creators David Benioff, DB Weiss and Alexander Woo on Friday cleared up the confusion surrounding the recent renewal of the Netflix sci-fi drama, confirming that two more seasons will be produced.

The streamer announced this during the streamer’s presentation last month 3 Body problem has been picked up for “all new episodes,” with Benioff, Weiss, and Woo assuring fans that they “will be able to tell this story all the way to its epic conclusion.”

No episode or season count was revealed, which caused confusion and led to wild speculation. Benioff, Weiss and Woo subsequently indicated to THR that the pickup was for “seasons,” but didn’t provide details until today when they confirmed there will be seasons 2 and 3 during a 3 Body problem Television Academy panel in the Netflix FYSEE room.

The number of seasons matches that of the books in Cixin Liu’s trilogy, on which the series is based, and the trio said the format allows them to tell the story as they intended.

“We got a lot of what we liked from the [novels] in Season 1, but the vast majority of the reasons we wanted to make this show are in Season 2,” Weiss said during the panel. “We always wanted to get to the last page of the third book, and it’s really exciting for us to be able to do just that.”

3 Body problem describes humanity’s first contact with an alien civilization. It follows a young woman whose fateful decision in 1960s China reverberates through space and time to this day. When the laws of nature inexplicably unravel before their eyes, a tight-knit group of brilliant scientists join forces with a fearless detective to confront the greatest threat in human history.

Weiss discussed the challenges that season 2 would bring on Deadline’s Contenders TV last month.

“The story gets really wild in the best possible way,” he said. “With something so wild, many choices have to be made and many things have to be thought out. We’ve been putting our heads together lately to figure them out, especially over the past few months.

Benioff, Weiss and Woo, who all have deals at Netflix, are creators, writers and executive producers of the series. Executive producers include Bernadette Caulfield, Rian Johnson, Ram Bergman, Nena Rodrigue, Lin Qi, Zhao Jilong and Brad Pitt, and Dede Gardner’s Plan B Entertainment and Jeremy Kleiner’s company, along with Rosamund Pike and Robie Uniacke for Primitive Streak.
