The Expanse is the latest hit on SyFy, and it is already set for a second season. One of the executive producers of the series, Naren Shankar, spoke about the future of the series with Assignment X, and there is no end to the series in sight, according to the EP.
The Expanse is based on a series of books, which currently consists of five novels and four novellas. This means that fans could see at least five seasons of the SyFy series.
“That’s not going to be easy to do, because [five novels and four novellas have so far] been published. They’re planning on writing nine [novels total]. They have a big story to tell, it takes a lot of time to actually go through it. We are not rushing through these books by any stretch of the imagination. The nice thing about television is, you get to spend time and live with people and learn these characters. The books move at a crazy fast pace in terms of plot and event. We actually had to slow it down a little bit, just so you could spend time with the characters and get to know the people on the show.”
