“Nightflyers is a haunted house story on a starship. It’s Psycho in space.”
Nightflyers is 2018 American science fiction horror television series, co-produced by the Syfy channel, based on the novella of the same name and the series of short stories by George R.R. Martin.

In 2016, it was announced that Syfy would be developing a series based on Martin’s novella. Later in 2017, it was announced that the series would rather be based on the film adaptation from 1987. George R.R. Martin will not be involved directly with the series due to his exclusive contract with HBO, however he will be credited as an executive producer.
The series began production in early 2018 on location in Limerick, Ireland, and also at Limerick-based Troy Studios.
