The forthcoming adaptation of Cixin Liu’s books will chronicle how, per the official logline, “a young woman’s fateful decision in 1960s China reverberates across space and time to a group of brilliant scientists in the present day. As the laws of nature unravel before their eyes, five former colleagues reunite to confront the greatest threat in humanity’s history.”

The season, which consists of eight one-hour episodes, will be released in its entirety on Thursday, March 21.

3 Body Problem hails from Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss and The Terror: Infamy‘s Alexander Woo; Benioff and Weiss serve as showrunners and executive producers, while Woo writes and executive-produces.

“What we are hoping to do is to convey the experience — if not necessarily the exact details — of the novel onto the screen,” Woo said in a statement released by Netflix. “What stayed, we hope, is the sense of wonderment and the sense of scope, of scale, where the problems are no longer just the problems of an individual or even a nation, but of an entire species.”

The cast includes Thrones vets John Bradley, Liam Cunningham and Jonathan Pryce, as well as Benedict Wong (She-Hulk: Attorney at Law), Eiza González (Ambulance), Jovan Adepo (Sorry for Your Loss), Ben Schnetzer (Y: The Last Man) and Rosalind Chao (Better Things), among others.
