It’s official: The Expanse renewed by Amazon for Season 4!
While speaking at the National Space Society’s International Space Development Conference in Los Angeles last night, Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos confirmed that the streaming service will pick up The Expanse after its cancellation at SYFY.
“I was talking to the cast half an hour ago, before the break for dinner started,” Bezos said. “I was telling them that we are working hard at Amazon to save The Expanse but it wasn’t a done deal yet. During dinner, ten minutes ago, I just got word that The Expanse is saved.”

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.
