Based on the James S. A. Corey book series, the sci-fi drama is set centuries into the future where Earth’s population has ballooned to over 30 billion and humans have colonized the solar system. The cast includes Thomas Jane, Steven Strait, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Dominique Tipper, Cas Anvar, Wes Chatham, Frankie Adams, Chad L. Coleman, and Shawn Doyle.
The Expanse is currently in the middle of its second season. And while ratings haven’t been great, the series is currently one of Syfy’s top-rated programs. So far, season two is averaging a .20 in the 18-49 demo with 600,000 viewers.
Syfy has ordered 13 episodes for season three of The Expanse, which is slated to debut in 2018.
From NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment chief Chris McCumber:
The Expanse is a gorgeous, thrilling, emotional series that has quite simply raised the bar for science fiction on television. We, along with the fans, are looking forward to continuing the journey with our partners at Alcon Television Group and the series’ brilliant cast and crew.”
