What’s This TV Show About?
A Syfy drama, based on the science-fiction novels by James S. A. 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.

What do you think? Should Syfy have cancelled or renewed The Expanse for season four? Will you follow this TV series to Amazon?
Having read the book series , this show has done a great job of staying with the books. Even the dialogue is the same. The sets and characters match well and they done a great job of keeping the effects of space real. The characters suck you into the story which has many twists and turns. Thankfully amazon has picked up the series it would be sad to see it die when at the end of season three its really just getting started. I predict this series if completed will revile the beloved star trek series, especially when you can… Read more »
Expanse has been a fantastic show — great story, great graphics, great characterizations. …But crippled by the yearly “will we get renewed?” panic. The finale “turn off all our reactors and now we’re good friends” was deus ex machina totally unsatisfying! Let’s see: Season 1 was about Chairman Mao and his stealth fighters trying to start a war. Season 2 was about moldy monsters running amok then colonizing Venus. COOL (But what happened to the fleet of stealth fighters?) Then Season 3 was about a huge blob of sticky quantum goo that won’t allow the humans kill each other —… Read more »
Ummm, the big moldy colony on Venus flew into space and became the ring near Uranus. I’m not sure how you missed this. (I’m not sure what ultimately happened to the UN crew that went down for a visit. Nothing good, I imagine.)
The stealth fighters were owned by Mao and served at his will, but he was arrested, wasn’t he? In any case, everyone is onto him now and would know who was causing havoc with the stealth fighters should he chose to do that.

Please cancel this show this is the most boring science fiction show ever seen I am having so much trouble getting through this I can’t even finish watching the episodes I’ve never seen such a boring science fiction show series in my life where is all other science fiction shows I’ve seen
Well, it’s a network that really doesn’t care about ratings. but more about what people want not caring bad in the demographics. Amazon wouldn’t care. Because they don’t care about ratings they just care about what a fraction of what the watch population wants. Money is no object for this company.
Also, the show is apparently a personal favorite of Jeff Bezos, so it seems as if the show will have a long future!
