It seems that Syfy has been making a push to get back to their roots by focusing more on science fiction programming. Will The Expanse be a hit in the ratings for the cable channel or will it be a flop? Cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
The Expanse is based on the James S. A. Corey book serie. It’s set centuries into the future where Earth’s population has ballooned to over 30 billion and humans have colonized the solar system. Police detective Miller (Thomas Jane) and his crew must unravel a conspiracy that threatens peace and the survival of humanity. The rest of the cast includes Steven Strait, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Dominique Tipper, Cas Anvar, Wes Chatham, Florence Faivre, Paulo Constanzo, Chad L. Coleman, and Jared Harris.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.
12/31 update: Syfy has renewed The Expanse for a second season. Details here.
Final season averages: 0.22 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 700,000 total viewers.

What do you think? Do you like The Expanse TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?
I started watching this late and finished all 3 seasons in 1 month! I’m a big science fiction fan and I’ve been waiting for something new since Battlestar Galactica, this show is definitely it! Awesome plot and the finale of season 3 opened the show up to so many possibilities!
This show is long on special effects but very short on plot. The story line is uninteresting at best, and makes no sense what so ever. I watched all of season 1, hoping it would get better. It didn’t. I watched up to episode 5 of season 2, hoping it would improve. It didn’t. It got worse. It’s all glitter but no substance. I don’t care if it’s canceled or not. It’s easy just to turn the channel.
I will be sorely disappointed if the Expanse gets canned. This show has the makings of something special, with quality casting, sets, script, and great direction that fills the viewing experience beyond a skeleton, bare bones run of the mill TV series. It really is making strides to reinvent the Sci Fi gender, and my worry is that it will be thrown on the slag heap without truly being recognized for its quality, depth and visual brilliance. As a avid Sci Fi fan I would love this show to evolve to its entirety, but as mentioned in various comments, the… Read more »
Omg the new premier for this year really wasn’t as good as was planned was it? You’re in trouble then again that’s not common for this program ratings.
Series started out slow but really got progressively better & by the season’s end I was hooked. Cant wait for next season!
Wow is that even watching? It sure not this one.
Not quite sure what you are asking me…your question doesnt make sense.
Lol meaning if you can keep understand the actors blundence of their talk.Let alone the bad acting etc., along confusing plots and subplots.
Out of curiosity, is English your second language?
This person does have a point. Look at the current rating feb 2 . Not as convincing as it might seem does it? Series has a long ways to go before it’s considered A. Hit
The show averaged a 0.22 per episode last season. Will the ratings tank like the ratings from 12 Monkeys did in season two.? If SYFY wants to be known as the station where RATINGS DON’T MATTER, advertise it and put it up with the SYFY logo. Don’t be cowards and try to fool people into thinking you’re renewing shows with decent ratings. If you’re going to be cowards, I guess I’ll have to do it for you almost every day. Let’s put the truth out there.
Started watching it late but love this show! I have been disappointed with SyFy in the past with too many early cancellations of shows, so I’m very encouraged to hear about the possibility of five seasons! My only frustration now is that I still cannot watch episodes 6 thru 9 of season 1. Hopefully they will become available soon
Look at the viewership for this show, it went down every week it’s not even close to being what it should be. I don’t know what’s going on but they really need to make the actors dialogue more clear. Because at times I can understand what they’re saying if it’s too much background noise, or the extreme accents of upset with the actors or actresses. It’s unclear many. Just because an actor has an accent doesn’t mean this actors good or the dialogs any better. Just clear up some of the errors and maybe this year will continually improve. But… Read more »
