Watch Two New Teasers For George R.R. Martin's NIGHTFLYERS

The adaptation of Martin's sci-fi novella comes to TV later in 2018.

With Game of Thrones proving a runaway success, it's no surprise to see author George R.R. Martin's back catalogue mined for another potential hit show.

Nightflyers is an upcoming series based on Martin's 1980 novel, which was previously adapted for a poorly received 1987 movie.

The series, which stars Gretchen Mol, follows the crew of a spaceship who set off to find a way to avert Earth's impending doom, only to run into unspeakable horrors.

Internationally, the show will debut on Netflix, while in the US it will air on the SyFy channel. Both networks have released teasers, which you can watch below.

The official synopsis reads:

Based on George R. R. Martin's novella, Nighflyers is set in the future on the eve of Earth's destruction.  A crew of explorers journey on the most advanced ship in the galaxy, The Nightflyer, to intercept a mysterious alien spacecraft that might hold the key to their survival. As the crew nears their destination, they discover that the ship's artificial intelligence and never-seen captain may be steering them into deadly and unspeakable horrors deep in the dark reaches of space.
