3 Body Problem Season 2: Under Development? Boss Hints At FOUR MORE Seasons!

3 Body Problem Season 2

Since Netflix dropped the epic sci-fi 3 Body Problem, fans haven’t kept calm as they eagerly wait for the next mindblowing season. But will there be 3 Body Problem Season 2? Well, the streaming giant recently dropped the pilot season of the fantasy drama. So it isn’t a possibility. However, the series co-creators David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, and Alexander Woo have recently opened up about their plans for the second season. So, is the series on the cards? Keep reading to know that.

   

Based on Cixin Liu’s novel series The Three-Body Problem, the series focuses on an astrophysicist, Ye Wenjie. Since her troublesome childhood, she relied more on her scientific background than connecting with emotions. That was because, during the Chinese Cultural Revolution, she saw her father beaten to death. Later, she was transferred to the military base, where her fateful decision helped the military learn about humanity’s greatest threat. So, will she return for the next outing? Let’s see! 

Is 3 Body Problem Season 2 Renewed?

After the stunning, action-packed ending, audiences are clamoring for 3 Body Problem Season 2. However, Netflix hasn’t yet renewed the show for the next season. But that doesn’t mean it’s the end of the epic saga. That’s because the pilot season is reportedly Netflix’s most expensive scripted season ever, costing around $20 million per episode. Considering the huge amount, it seems like Netflix might soon renew 3 Body Problem for season 2.

Not only this, but the fantasy drama series also performed incredibly well in terms of ratings. Within a few weeks of its debut, the series earned 77% positive ratings on Rotten Tomatoes and 7.7 out of 10 on IMDb. Besides this, the series reached Netflix’s Global Top Ten in the week of March 18 – March 24, 2024, peaking in the No. 1 position, surpassing The Gentlemen: Season 1. Thus, it seems like the streaming giant will soon consider this and announce its decision.

However, Netflix takes almost a couple of months to announce its decision, so it doesn’t seem like the streaming giant will make an announcement soon. Considering the series’ incredible performance, we expect that the streaming giant will make an announcement in a couple of months. Further, the cost vs. viewership graph will play a significant role in renewing 3 Body Problem Season 2.

Creator Enivisions More Than Three Seasons

As we all know, 3 Body Problem is an adaptation of Liu’s trilogy. The first season covered only one book, so there is more to bring to the screen. Surprisingly, series co-creator Alexander Woo recently revealed they want to work on all three novels. In an interview with RadioTimes, Woo said they believed they would return for the second season. However, currently, they are focusing on taking tiny steps. The first season has just aired, so Woo wanted to see how their series will perform.

Beyond that, Woo mentioned that the book is a trilogy, so they can roughly plan for three seasons. However, the third book is quite lengthy compared to the previous two books, so it doesn’t seem like the entire book will be adapted in one season. Hence, they are planning to continue the series beyond 3 Body Problem Season 2. Woo added that they are honestly excited about the ending of the book and how beautifully it ties everything together.

So, they wanted the third book to be covered in more than two seasons. Considering this, Woo promises that the show might continue for four seasons or more. But it entirely depends on Netflix! However, before the 3 Body Problem release, the co-creators discussed their plan for 3 Body Problem Season 2. They already revealed that they were working on the series. Let’s see how far they have reached.

3 Body Problem Season 2: Production Details

As stated above, the series creators revealed they had already begun working on the 3 Body Problem Season 2 before its debut. D.B. Weiss told Collider that they had a rough idea about the second run. However, they haven’t yet started the scripting work. The season is currently in the rough stage. Weiss added that the view gets hazier as they go further with the scripting. The creator also emphasized the third book and stated that they were more into it.

Weiss also discussed the amazing landmarks and scenes mentioned in the third book. He said that they wanted to go to such locations to shoot those scenes, but they had no clue how to get there. Although they haven’t yet discussed when the production will start for 3 Body Problem Season 2, the creators seem excited about the filming location. Benioff also suggested that the second season will focus on Liu’s second book, The Dark Forest.

Who Will Be In 3 Body Problem Season 2 Cast?

Since the series has just aired on Netflix, it remains unclear who will return for 3 Body Problem Season 2. However, we can expect that the original cast will return for the next outing. These include Jovan Adepo as Saul Durand, Eiza Gonzalez as Auggie Salazar, Liam Cunningham as Thomas Wade, and Jess Hong as Jin Cheng. Other cast members include Marlo Kelly as Tatiana, Zine Tseng as young Ye Wenjie, Sea Shimooka as Sophon, and Saamer Usmani as Raj Varma. Besides them, Rosalind Chao as Ye Wenjie, Eve Ridley as Follower, and Ben Schnetzer as young Mike Evans might also return.

3 Body Problem Season 2: What To Expect?

The first season was a blast, no doubt. However, David Benioff said in an interview that the second season would be superior to the pilot season. That’s because the second book is “far better than the first,” hinting more drama and insane action will take place in 3 Body Problem Season 2. Like the first season had the Judgment Day scene, Benioff revealed that the second season would also focus on that. However, it will be a bit different.

That’s because those who survived in the first season would face the wrath of the forest. As per the synopsis, the universe is a forest where numerous nameless predators roam to hunt for their prey. However, humans need to learn survival skills to protect themselves from these dangerous predators. Not only this, but the Trisolarians are also reaching Earth. While the humans need to fight them, they must also fight against the Sophons already on Earth.

Who remains protected from such predators remains to be seen. But 3 Body Problem Season 2 might focus on the Wallfacer Project. That will help four individuals to fight against the odds. While three of them are already known, it remains unclear who the fourth Wallfacer is. Will season 2 of 3 Body Problem answer that question?

3 Body Problem Season 2: Release Date

As of now, Netflix has yet to renew the series for the next season. However, the creators are already optimistic about this big project. So, considering this, the next season might be on the cards. But since it’s a sci-fi drama, the production will take at least a year to wrap up. Speaking about the 3 Body Problem Season 2 release date, it might air sometime in 2025. Stay tuned.
