  • The platform (Netflix) has invested heavily in this project, which clearly indicates that it will be a long-term series.

When Will the 3 Body Problem Come Out?

As said earlier, Netflix has publicly declared that there will be a season 2, but the showrunners (Alexander Woo, D.B. Weiss, and David Benioff) have revealed that they have planned to adapt all three books in four seasons. They also added that seasons 1 and 2 will follow the general plot of the first two books while splitting the third book into two seasons.

Furthermore, the showrunners also claimed they had started working on the second season. Filming might not have started yet, but it is expected to start this fall. So, they have not announced the release date, but from its filming schedule, you can expect to be watching this second season of 3 Body Problem in 2026 (spring).

What Will Happen In 3 Body Problem Season 2?

In the last episode of season 1, Jovan Adepo (Saul) becomes one of the three Wallfacers present on the planet. It must defeat San-Ti within the next four centuries without letting anybody know about his plans. However, the spying Sophons of San-Ti can see and hear everything.

Lastly, Saul becomes the cipher for Luo Ji, the major character of the second book. The Dark Forest (second book) is focused on the schemes or plans of Wallfacers, while the major focus will be on Luo Ji’s complex plan to trap the San-Ti.

After hibernation for about two hundred years, Luo Ji will be threatened to broadcast the location of the Trisolaran star system to other hostile aliens. Here, the major revelation is the “dark forest hypothesis.” Therefore, in the next season, you will see Saul working on the dark forest hypothesis, and at some point, he might hibernate for some time.

In this season, Jin (Jess Hong) and Wade (Liam Cunningham) will also be hibernated and will wake up in the future. Will (Alex Sharp) will also appear this season. Also, as in season 1, the suspended animation hibernation technology has already been introduced, and Wade has declared that he is on the way to the future. Therefore, during season 2, all the characters step into the tube and may end up in a new time (after centuries) without aging a day.
