Netflix has revealed its epic sci-fi series 3 Body Problem will be returning for another season.

However, the streamer’s announcement was rather on the cryptic side, as rather than specifying how many seasons the show was being renewed for, yesterday (15th May)’s announcement simply said the show had been renewed “to its conclusion.”

“3 Body Problem has been renewed! Netflix will continue this epic story through to its mind-blowing conclusion,” Netflix’s UK & Ireland X (formerly Twitter) account announced on Wednesday.

3 Body Problem is an adaptation of Chinese author Liu Cixin’s trilogy of novels which tell the story of a group of scientists who discover an alien threat to Earth and who later work to fight against it.

The first season of TV, created by Game of Thrones’ David Benioff and D.B. Weiss alongside True Blood’s Alexander Woo, broke records to become the most expensive series ever made by Netflix. An estimated $20 million dollars was spent producing each individual episode in the eight episode series.

Speaking about their show’s renewal, the series’ creators Benioff, Weiss and Woo said: “We’re thrilled that we get to tell this story through to its epic conclusion. Ever since we read the last page of Cixin Liu’s magnificent trilogy, we hoped we’d be able to bring the audience to the end of the universe with us. Here we go!” 

Speaking exclusively with at the premiere of season one of 3 Body Problem, one of the show’s stars Eiza González (Auggie) hinted at how everyone on the show was “so excited” about the possibility of making more seasons, if Netflix was willing to renew the show.

“We’re only in a very short span of the first book,” she also stressed. “There’s so much more still to discover, we would love to get a second season. Hopefully people will check in and watch it and fall in love with it and give us the opportunity to keep telling this story.”

3 Body Problem season one is available to watch on Netflix now.
