The semi-renewal for Season 2 of Netflix's “Three Body Problem” raises a lot of questions

The semi-renewal for Season 2 of Netflix's “Three Body Problem” raises a lot of questions

Netflix was in trouble with 3 Body Issue, one of its most expensive series ever, but it didn't beat The Doors in terms of viewership, which was strong, but far from record-breaking. In order to continue the show, they will definitely need to see the three-book trilogy through to its conclusion. But what they do instead seems very strange.

this week, TV line I mentioned that Netflix said in its upfront presentation that 3 Body Trouble had been picked up for “all new episodes.” Not only was the term “Season 2” virtually unused, but Netflix promised that the series would actually have an ending with this renewal.

“We're thrilled to be able to tell this story to its epic conclusion. Ever since we read the last page of Cixin Liu's remarkable trilogy, we've been hoping to be able to take the audience with us to the end of the universe,” said co-creators David Benioff, D. B. Weiss, and Alexander Woosid. “here we are!”

What exactly is happening here? Previously, the creators said that in order to build out the full three-book saga, they would probably need four seasons, given the scope of the last book. So has Netflix already renewed the series for another 24 episodes or is there something else going on here?

What it seems to me is that they're going to try to figure out a way to cut down the number of books a little bit and reduce the time it would take to get to the end, as four full seasons would probably cost something like half a billion dollars. dollar. This may seem like a massive task, and it's not what they originally set out to do, but it may be what they need to actually be able to finish without a cliffhanger ending to join Netflix's graveyard of unfinished shows.

But why doesn't Netflix say the show has been renewed for a second and third season or a second, third, and fourth season? They said that these seasons and episode numbers “will be revealed at a later date,” so it seems like this message was just to confirm that no, it hasn't been canceled and yes, somehow, the show will actually be able to come to a conclusion “to the end of the universe.”

Netflix also has a unique situation with David Benioff and Game of Thrones' DB Weiss, in that they have a large and expensive deal with them, a partnership they may not want to jeopardize by canceling their high-profile show. So this could be an investment in future content, not a revamp based solely on viewing numbers compared to cost. That's a luxury that many Netflix series don't get (RIP Altered Carbon).

I'm definitely excited to be able to see the rest of 3 Body Problems come true on screen, but this was a weird way to announce it, and raises more questions than answers.
