What Can We Expect from Syfy’s Nightflyers?

Recently, there has been quite a bit of buzz centering around a new show that is coming to the Syfy channel by the name of Nightflyers. That’s right, this show follows the same story as the movie that was released 30 years ago in 1987. If that isn’t enough to pique your interest, you might be happy to know that this story was developed by the same person that is responsible for Game of Thrones, George R.R. Martin. That alone is enough to make most people want to tune in.

While all of the details concerning the show have yet to be worked out, there is enough information to get most fans excited, especially for those individuals that enjoyed the novella and the movie that the show will be based on. While the plot still sounds fairly basic and there aren’t that many details available, it involves eight scientists that travel to the edge of the galaxy on a ship by the name of the Nightflyer, all for the purposes of searching for life elsewhere in the universe. An interesting twist is featured because in addition to the eight scientists that are on board the ship, there is also a psychic that is thought to be able to make it easier to communicate with any life forms that are discovered.

All of this comes as part of Syfy’s attempt to sort of reinvent itself. This is a channel that has been in existence for a number of years and up until now, most of the programming has remained basically the same since it started airing on television. Recently, executives at Syfy realized that it was time to create a fresher image for themselves in order to remain relevant. As such, a number of new shows that are original are being put on the network as opposed to merely running television shows or movies that have been created elsewhere. Nightflyers is a part of that fresher image that the network is trying to portray.

While no one will be able to tell for certain if this is a show that will be worth watching until it actually airs, it definitely sounds like it at least has a plot line that would be interesting enough to watch on a weekly basis. People that are fans of the movie or the novella are very excited, as those two endeavors generated something of a cult-like following.

It is good to know that Syfy is attempting to create some truly interesting programming that has a good enough storyline to hold the interest of people in an environment where new venues are constantly vying for the attention of the audience. In all likelihood, it looks like Nightflyers is going to become one of those signature shows of the network, although this cannot possibly be proven as a fact until it actually starts being shown on the network. Whatever happens, it is good to know that the network seems like it is at least trying to stick to its roots while simultaneously updating its programming in order to maintain the interest of future generations.
