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!
