No Season 4 for the space drama.
May 10, 2018
It is being reported that Syfy has opted to cancel The Expanse after its current third season. The space opera is midway through its final 13-episode run, which will conclude in July.
No decision was given as to why the cable network is ending the series, which draws a healthy audience and has received continued critical acclaim. Word is that the production company behind the show, Alcon Television Group, will be shopping it around to potential buyers with hopes of continuing its story.
Based on the novel series of the same name by Daniel Abraham, The Expanse takes place two hundred years in the future, with mankind having colonized the solar system. A hardened detective and a rogue ship's crew work together in a race across the solar system to expose a conspiracy that threatens the survival of humanity.
It made me sad to see the lists of older, previously cancelled SyFy shows. (I still hate that "new" spelling)
I think I might be the only one not in love with The Expanse. I tried twice: 3 esp 1st/then 8 about 6 months later. I must have been tired.
Even so, I still strongly agree with all the complaints about the network. The only positive of SyFy falling apart is that there are quite a few shows on other networks that at least fall into this genre. Now someone, somewhere needs to come up with another space show, or I might have to rewatch Battlestar.
@Nick. Interesting info
The only common factor across the shows is cost of production. Krypton will last because costumes are cheap. Killjoys CGI is meh and most of the episodes are back lot cheap productions.
Expanse has GOOD ratings but it’s expensive. Dark matter was supposedly expensive according to the producer.
I’m just so tired of SyFy. Not watching it doesn’t change anything. There needs to be some kind of petition to change SyFy’s corporate level. They obviously have no interest in science fiction and only care about cost to commercial value.
Some other network please please please pick this up.
What's wrong .... the gore a little too much for you kid to watch.
Says someone who has 0 grasp on the sci-fi genre. Since when did space ships define sci-fi? If is science fiction, not space ship fiction.
Hopefully someone can pick this site up, it had a really good story line with interesting characters.
