SyFy Renews The Expanse For Season Three
The Expanse is coming back next year. SyFy announced on Thursday that it has renewed the sci-fi drama for a third season that will consist of thirteen episodes and premiere in 2018.
The series stars Steven Strait, Thomas Jane, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Cas Anvar and Chad L. Coleman and takes place across a colonized galaxy 200 years in the future, when two strangers become swept up in a vast conspiracy. The show has been a good performer for the cable network, with the second season ranking only behind The Magicians and Z Nation for scripted series on the network.
“The Expanse is a gorgeous, thrilling, emotional series that has quite simply raised the bar for science fiction on television,” NBCU cable entertainment president Chris McCumber said in a statement. “We, along with the fans, are looking forward to continuing the journey with our partners at Alcon Television Group and the series’ brilliant cast and crew.”
