Based on George R.R. Martin's novella, Nightflyers follows eight maverick scientists and a powerful telepath who embark on an expedition to the edge of our solar system aboard The Nightflyer - a ship with a small tightknit crew and a reclusive captain - in the hope of making contact with alien life.

The new trailer shows more of the mysterious deaths on board the spaceship called Nightflyer. Only this is no pleasure cruise as they quickly find themselves plagued by disgusting events that put the entire mission in jeopardy.

Martin, best known as the author behind Game of Thrones, is as an executive producer on Nightflyers. But when terrifying and violent events begin to take place they start to question each other - and surviving the journey proves harder than anyone thought. Jacob's Ladder scribe Jeff Buhler wrote the adaptation, and The Blacklist's Daniel Cerone serves as showrunner. He previously described the show as Alfred Hitchcock's "Pyscho [but] in space", basically like "a haunted house story on a starship". Starring Eoin Macken (Resident Evil: The Final Chapter), Nightflyers will premiere this fall on Syfy.

The first trailer for Syfy's Nightflyers has dropped and, if the short preview is anything to go by, then we should be preparing for a disturbing drama of epic proportions.
