For those who watched it. The Expanse offered the most realistic portrayal of a space-faring humanity which takes place some two hundred years in the future. The interstellar politics and the effects that space travel has had on the various characters and yes, races, were particularly fascinating aspect of the show. As was how the extended solar system itself dealt with the discovery of alien life.

The Expanse wasn’t Star Trek, but it has a devoted fan base and has sold millions of books. A few years ago, Netflix bought the rights to The Expanse so I remain optimistic that they will be the ones to pick up the show. However, it is expensive, and so far the third season, has shown a much lower budget than in the first season. Yet, the executives seem to be fine with it ending after season 3. Chris McCumber, President of Entertainment Networks at NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, told Deadline, “Everyone at Syfy is a massive fan of the series, and this was an incredibly difficult decision. We want to sincerely thank The Expanse’ s amazing cast, crew and all the dedicated creatives who helped bring James S.A. Corey’s story to life. And to the series’ loyal fans, we thank you most of all.” They are shopping it around so hopefully Netflix or someone else picks it up.
