Netflix’s adaptation of the popular sci-fi book series, 3 Body Problem, has been met with both skepticism and anticipation for a potential season 2. The cost of adapting the entire three-book series in three to four seasons is estimated to be around half a billion dollars. However, recent developments have shown promising signs for the future of the show.

After briefly losing the top spot on Netflix’s Top 10 list to another show, 3 Body Problem has reclaimed its position as the #1 show. Additionally, the show is still performing well globally, holding the #1 spot in over 20 countries. A report from Luminate at Variety revealed that 3 Body Problem had 1.6 billion minutes viewed in its first full week, making it the top streaming program for that week.

Despite the show’s success, concerns remain about the future of 3 Body Problem. Adapting the entire series for a potential season 2 would be a massive commitment for Netflix, not only in terms of cost but also in terms of the creative direction of the series. Netflix also needs to consider its relationship with the Game of Thrones showrunners, who are running the series.

Despite these concerns, there is a growing belief that Netflix will commit to a season 2 and potentially adapt the entire series. This decision would mirror Amazon’s commitment to the five-season adaptation of The Rings of Power. While Netflix has not made any promises about the future of 3 Body Problem, it seems likely that they will go all-in if they do decide to renew the show.
