Amazon in Talks for The Expanse Season 4!

Amazon in talks for The Expanse season 4!

Just ten days after the series was canceled at SYFY, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Amazon is now in talks for The Expanse season four!

Despite glowing reviews, the series was primarily canceled by SYFY because the network only has the first-run cable rights and do not own the streaming or international rights to the series. Since the cancellation, The Expanse producers Alcon Television have been shopping the series to other networks and appear to have found a willing partner in Amazon, who owns the streaming rights to the series. Check back here for more details on the return of The Expanse as we learn them!

Season 3 of The Expanse (which is still airing on SYFY) finds Earth, Mars and The Belt at war, with each competing entity vying for control. Now, more than ever, the mission to unlock the secret of the protomolecule reaches an all-time high and every decision made could jeopardize the survival of the solar system.

The series unfolds across a colonized galaxy 200 years in the future, when two strangers become unwittingly swept up in a vast conspiracy. It is based on the New York Times bestselling book series by Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck (under pen name James S. A. Corey) and stars Steven Strait, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Dominique Tipper, Cas Anvar, Wes Chatham and Frankie Adams. Elizabeth Mitchell (LOST) and David Strathairn (Alphas) also join the Season 3 cast in recurring roles.

Academy Award-nominated screenwriting duo Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby (Children of Men, Iron Man) serve as executive producers alongside showrunner Naren Shankar (Almost Human, Grimm).

The Expanse Season 3 is currently airing on Wednesdays at 9/8c on Syfy. The season finale is expected to air early July.
