January 22, 2019 – Amazon today announced Season 3 of The Expanse will be available to Prime members in over 200 countries and territories on February 8. Seasons 1-2 are currently available in the US and will become available internationally on February 8.
Based on novels by James S. A. Corey, The Expanse is a critically-acclaimed, award-winning political science fiction series set hundreds of years in the future. Humans have colonized the solar system with The United Nations controlling Earth and an independent military power inhabiting Mars. Desperate for air and water, the series begins with Earth and Mars on the verge of war over the resources found in the Asteroid Belt. With few options for survival, allies struggle to fight over the future of humanity.
Prime Video is the new home to the highly anticipated Season 4 of The Expanse, a Prime Original series, which will launch later this year. Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon, made the announcement in May 2018 at the National Space Society’s International Space Development Conference in Los Angeles where the cast and showrunner were in attendance.
Co-created and written by Academy Award nominees Mark Fergus (Iron Man) and Hawk Otsby (Children of Men), the series stars three-time Golden Globe nominee Thomas Jane (Deep Blue Sea), Oscar-nominee Shohreh Asgdashloo (Star Trek: Beyond), Steve Strait (The Covenant), Dominique Tipper (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), Wes Chatam (The Hunger Games), Cas Anvar (Punisher: War Zone), Frankie Adams (Mortal Engines) and Shawn Doyle (Frequency), Chad L. Coleman (The Walking Dead), Florence Faivre (The Sia Renaissance), and Cara Gee (Empire of Dirt).
The Expanse is produced by Alcon Television Group. Naren Shankar is the show runner.”
What do you think? Do you watch The Expanse? Are you excited for the new season?
There is a fundamental problem with so many Syfy shows.
They are visually stunning but lack so much in the stories that all too often has me watching only the first episode of most shows on it’s network.
They come off as amateur and forgettable.
This show is incredible. It’s the first real sci-fi “TV show” I could even stand to watch since X-Files went off the air. Can’t wait for season 4!
Will miss seeing the Expanse due to it being on Amazon. Funds don’t stretch far enough to afford Amazon.
That’s insanity. Amazon Prime is a staple and should be budgeted for as with any survival-critical resource. Get your sh;t together, man!
Well kudos to you for having money to burn. Willing to treat those of us who don’t?
Me personally, I’ll be putting it on my watch for a sale on the DVD release list. But then, I have someone who helps wth that.
You could wait for it to come out on DVD & your local library should be able to get it for you through their interlibrary system. I do this with some shows.
Can’t wait!!! /me doing a little dance
Can’t wait! I love this show.
