Netflix is definitely one of the platforms that’s really committed to bringing us fresh and original stuff. They’re always upping their game with big projects to give us a wider range of top-quality content. That’s why we’ve had big hits like Dark, Stranger Things, How to Sell Drugs Online, among others. 

And now, they’re dropping another gem: The Three-Body Problem. Created by David Benioff and DB Weiss, this series is an adaptation of the eponymous novel by Chinese author Liu Cixin. 

What Is it About?

The novel and series follows a group of scientists as they engage with a distant civilization. According to the BBC, it delves into an orbital mechanics puzzle known as ‘the three-body problem,’ exploring the inherent challenge of predicting the movements of three bodies within the same orbital system. Notably, while this problem is not novel, it has fascinated scholars since humanity’s earliest comprehension of gravity.

The series is out now on Netflix, featuring 8 episodes, each approximately 1 hour long. The cast includes the Latin talent of Eiza González, portraying the role of nanotechnology expert Augustina ‘Auggie’ Salazar, alongside distinguished actors such as Liam Cunningham, John Bradley, Jonathan Pryce, Benedict Wong, Tsai Chin, Alex Sharp, Saamer Usmani, Jovan Adepo, Sea Shimooka, Jess Hong, Mario Kelly, and Zine Tseng. 

Interview With LOS40 & De Película

Gaby Cam from LOS40 and De Película interviewed John Bradley-West and Alex Sharp, who shared interesting insights on the series and the potential challenges of an extraterrestrial invasion. This got us thinking: why do we always see humans as the heroes and aliens as the villains in these scenarios? It also made us ponder the possibility of life on other planets and how we would react to a reality beyond our understanding. 

But the big question is: What’s the biggest threat to humanity? John Bradley-West had a clear answer: the environment. He emphasized the direct impact of human actions on our surroundings, stressing that nothing else truly matters until we recognize the need to preserve and nurture the planet we call home. In light of that, everything else seems less important. 

The plan is for The Three-Body Problem to have two more seasons, but the decision hinges on the success of the first season.
