The Three-Body Problem Plot and Cast
Chinese physicist and nanomaterial researcher Wang Miao gets entangled in a vast conspiracy after state intelligence asks him to infiltrate a group known as The Frontiers of Science, which has been associated with a string of suicides among its members. Ye Wenjie is a astrophysicist who saw her father brutally murdered during the Chinese Cultural Revolution more than forty years before the main story.
After her father’s murder, she was taken to a labor camp but later conscripted because of her scientific background and sent to a secret radar base in a remote region of China. Ye’s daughter was one of the suicides Wang must investigate, and they become friends as she recounts her secret work in the base to him.
At the same time, Wang progresses through a mysterious VR game called Three Body, which takes place on an alien world with highly irregular weather and day/night cycles. The game follows the attempts of an alien race to build a functional calendar while their society is periodically destroyed by pattern-less waves of extreme heat and extreme cold. The object of the game is for the player to use the scientific method to help the creatures understand the nature of their world.
The cast of The Three-Body Problem will have some popular faces like Eiza Gonzalez, Benedict Wong, Tsai Chin, John Bradley, Liam Cunningham, Jovan Adepo, Jess Hong, Marlo Kelly, Alex Sharp, Sea Shimooka and Saamer Usmani.
