3 Body Problem is a sci-fi drama based on the Remembrance of Earth's Past book trilogy by Liu Cixin.

The Netflix adaptation hails from Alexander Woo and Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, who will return to create, write and executive produce the new season.

"We're thrilled that we get to tell this story through to its epic conclusion," the trio said in a statement. "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!"

Other details, including the full number of seasons and episodes, will be announced at a later date.

"The extraordinary 3 Body Problem, brought to life with the deft hands of Benioff, Weiss and Woo will soar to never-before-seen heights as they tacked the rest of mind-blowing journey through Death's End," Netflix VP of scripted series (US & Canada) Peter Friedlander said. "Their brilliant vision as storytellers is matched by their amazing partnership -- and, just like the fans, we can't wait to see what they have in store."
