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.
Season Three Ratings
The third season of The Expanse is averaging a 0.18 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 577,000 viewers. Compared to season two, that’s down by 1% in the demo and up by 3% in viewers. Find out how The Expanse stacks up against the other Syfy TV shows.
Although it premiered with decent numbers for basic cable, it is still too early to use those ratings to predict whether Syfy will cancel or renew The Expanse for season four. Flying blind, I think it will score a renewal, but let’s see what happens as more ratings data rolls in. For now, I’ll keep an eye on the Nielsens and update this page with breaking developments.
