Is The Expanse gone for good? Recently, executive producer Naren Shankar addressed the future of the TV show in light of Syfy’s recent cancellation.
As reported earlier, Syfy has cancelled the popular sci-fi drama after three seasons. Based on the novel by James S. A. Corey, the series unfolds 200 years in the future in a colonized galaxy where two strangers are caught up in a vast conspiracy. The cast includes Steven Strait, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Dominique Tipper, Cas Anvar, Wes Chatham, Shawn Doyle, and Frankie Adams.
On James S.A. Corey’s website, The Expanse EP Naren Shankar told fans the series’ production studio, Alcon TV Studios, “is doing everything they can to find continued life for the series.”

I guess now we really all are Belters. A tribe without a country.
I’ve been on shows that were so awful and so awful to work on, that I would pray for cancellation (mercifully granted). I’ve been on shows that had good, long runs, so when the end came it was okay because we’d said what we wanted to say and we could go out with some dignity. But I have never been on a show where the story, the characters, the look, the sound, the audience engagement, the reviews, everything were clicking like The Expanse. So getting cancelled now, like this… I’m still trying to put my head around it.
The passion of our fans has been matched only by the passion of the incredibly talented cast and crew who put their hearts and souls into every episode. Thank you all for that.
Alcon TV Studios is doing everything they can to find continued life for the series. I the meantime, keep watching and (hopefully) raving — and making noise. Let people know what they’ve been missing. We are only halfway through the season and there is SO MUCH MORE to come. You will not want to miss it.
Yam Seng Beltalowda!
What do you think? Are you a fan of The Expanse? Do you want another season?
Is SyFy nutz ??? This is the most awesome TV show on television . With all the crappy shows on SyFy they cancel The Expanse ? Why ? What’s the reason for this ? I missed the first season because there had been no shows of interest on SyFy any longer .I find my way back to SyFy because of The Expanse and they cancel the show .There are some really stupid people making decisions for that channel .Seems like that channel keeps going further and further down the hole .
This was the best series in their lineup. They have so many poor quality shows and yet they cancel this one.
The Expanse was the reason I returned to watching the Syfy channel after so many disappointments with the network over the years. I also got into Dark Matter because of Syfy as well so the show DID pay dividends. Sadly, both are now cancelled which is a bummer as the story arc that were laid out so well by their writers/producers/creators, have been disrupted by these poorly timed decisions. This is one of the reasons that I gave up on Syfy years ago when they aired and cancelled “Farscape” and brought “Caprica” to a premature end. I understand this is… Read more »
Just like Firefly, the idiot suits cancel another well developed SciFi show. I’m glad past shows like Babylon 5 didn’t get cancelled half way through the series (well kinda). It appears the current demographics are the culprit. I guess I have to wait until I’m old for fantastic shows like this to reappear. I’m really disappointed.
The Expanse is by far the best science fiction TV show I’ve watched in the last thirty years in a list that includes Star Trek The Next Generation, Babylon 5, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica (remake) and yes, Stargate SG1. Its visuals and settings are stunning, bordering on reality. Last night’s episode was incredible, one of the best with Cotyar and Bobbie the people of Season 3 so far. Sad to see Cotyar go but what a spy! What a character! And Bobbie, taking on the Hybrid and finally avenging her Marines, what a Marine, what a soldier, what a gentle giant!… Read more »
Hope it is picked up. It’s the best sci fy show on now.
Such a shame. Maybe the series is touching too much on the “SSP” (Solar Warden) & they don’t want the majority to start learning the truth
The worst show has been canceled finally, Thank you SyFy I promise you I will buy your new shows on iTunes in order to support you.
Wow, Dont like good Science Fiction? Whats your fav? Face Off?
Just another reason not to get vested in any tv show, I’ve seen happen so many times
Asher! I am with you 100%. Networks have done this to us way too many times. I have reached a point where I’m waiting till a show gets into its 4th season before I commit.
Hopefully Netflix or Amazon will pick up this phenomenal series and take it to a 5th season and beyond.
