Three-Body (Chinese: 三体 or San ti) is a Chinese science fiction television series based on the novel The Three-Body Problem by Liu Cixin.

The series premiered on 15 January 2023.


Mu Xing, an investigative reporter, bluntly confronts Shi Qiang about his investigation into the suicides. Wang Miao goes to a former student of Ye Wenjie’s to observe the cosmic microwave background. To their dismay, at the appointed time, it starts fluctuating in a pattern of short and long episodes, spelling out the countdown in Morse. To confirm the data, they compare it with the Urumqi observatory and with their own eyes, using 3K glasses that compress the wavelength into visible light – the universe beyond the night sky is flickering the countdown. This drives Wang Miao to further despair until Shi Qiang finds him and offers him some comfort. Later, the nanotech experiments are restarted and Wang Miao gives a guest lesson at his daughter’s school, affirming his belief in finding answers through science.
