Game of Thrones showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff are back along with showrunner Alexander Woo for Netflix’s 3 Body Problem, a series based on the Chinese novel The Three-Body Problem by Liu Cixin. The science fiction show deals with a threat outside our world, and it’s up to a group of scientists to help uncover the mystery and help humanity in the process.

“There are so many different challenges because we shot it in London during the height of COVID,” director Derek Tsang tells Nerd Reactor. “To recreate China in the ’60s in London, that was a very tough task. But credit to our production designer and a custom designer. We all really threw our 120% into it, and I think when we pulled it off.”

“Our production designer, Deborah Riley, who we worked with in Game of Thrones starting season four and then to the end, and hope we always get to work with her again,” said David Benioff. “And she created probably one of the more challenging designs for a show because some of it is science fiction, some of it is historical, some of it is contemporary. And she did it all with grace and style. And her department came up with this three-sun image, and then we fell in love with it.”
