George R.R. Martin's Nightflyers Coming With A Unique Release Strategy

If you're looking forward to seeing SYFY's highly anticipated adaptation of George R.R. Martin's Nightflyers, make sure you set aside some time in early December - a lot of it. Episodes 1-5 will have their broadcast debut Sunday, December 2 through Thursday, December 6. The first five episodes will air between Sunday and Thursday starting December 2, while the second half of the series will the week of December 9, 2018. Viewers will be able to access the episodes through the Syfy channel, Syfy On Demand, online at Syfy.com and in the Syfy app. Anyone can watch the episodes, which won't be limited only to subscribers. With only the rights to the first-run live airings, Syfy lost out on the benefits that come with digital sales and online streaming. It's unclear whether that Halloween-centric stunt will pay off for Channel Zero, but this unique digital-first approach could work for Nightflyers. "Nightflyers is a haunted house story on a starship", said Martin about the story. And with Martin's other hit series Game of Thrones now on hiatus, thirsty Thrones fans may be looking for something else - anything else - from the writer.

Set in the year 2093, Nightflyers, based on Martin's novella, follows a team of scientists aboard The Nightflyer, the most advanced ship ever built, as they embark on a journey to find other life forms. It's not long before their main mission becomes survival. The series stars Eoin Macken (The Night Shift), Sam Strike (EastEnders), Maya Eshet (Teen Wolf), Angus Sampson (Fargo), Jodie Turner-Smith (The Last Ship), Gretchen Mol (Boardwalk Empire), David Ajala (Fast & Furious 6), and Brían F. O'Byrne (Million Dollar Baby).
