Last year, The Expanse TV show lost some viewers, but it still remained one of the better performing Syfy TV series. Can it bring back some of the original audience in the third season, or will the slide continue? Will The Expanse be cancelled or renewed season four? Stay tuned. **Status update below

Corey (i.e. the pen name for authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck), The Expanse stars Steven Strait, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Dominique Tipper, Cas Anvar, Wes Chatham, and Frankie Adams. The story unfolds 200 years in the future, in a colonized galaxy, when two strangers are caught up in a vast conspiracy. Season three kicks off immediately after the events of the second season finale, with Earth, Mars, and The Belt at war. The quest to discover the secret of the protomolecule intensifies and every decision made risks the survival of the solar system. .
