How to watch Nightflyers online
US viewers will be able to stream Nightflyers live when it airs on December 2.
The series will then be available on the Syfy website and app to watch online for viewers with selected cable providers.
Netflix has not revealed the release date for Nightflyers in the UK.
The streaming service has the first run rights to stream the service outside of the US, but has not revealed whether they will be releasing episodes the day after they air in America or whether they will release them all at once after they have all aired on Thursday, December 13.
If it is the former, then we can expect Nightflyers episode one to be streaming from 8am on Monday, December 3, with the 10 episodes airing one a day for 10 days.
If Netflix is waiting to release all the episodes at once, the streaming giant could drop every of Nightflyers sometime on or after Friday, December 14.
As Netflix usually releases its series on a Friday, this seems a likely date for Nightflyers to drop.
Express.co.uk has contacted Netflix to find out when they will be releasing Nightflyers, but at time of publication has not received a response.
What will happen in Nightflyers?
The official Netflix synopsis reads: “Based on George R. R. Martin’s novella.
“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.”
Nightflyers was previously made into a film in 1987.
However, the new TV version is actually based on different source material, with the filmed based on an earlier version of the story that was then expanded, with some of the characters given new names.
Syfy says of the series: “Set in the year 2093, their mission takes them beyond the edge of the solar system, farther than mankind has ever gone before.
“But when terrifying and violent events start to occur, the team and crew begin to question themselves, each other, and their reclusive captain.”
