The premise (from Wikipedia)…
Two hundred years in the future, in a fully colonized Solar System, police detective Josephus Miller (Thomas Jane), born on Ceres in the asteroid belt, is assigned to find a missing young woman, Juliette “Julie” Andromeda Mao (Florence Faivre). James Holden (Steven Strait), the Executive Officer of the ice hauler Canterbury, is involved in a tragic incident that threatens to destabilize the uneasy peace between Earth, Mars and the Belt. On Earth, Chrisjen Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo), a United Nations executive, works to prevent war between Earth and Mars by any means necessary. Soon, the three find out that the missing woman and the ice hauler’s fate are part of a vast conspiracy that threatens all humanity.
Based on a series of novels by Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck (writing under the pseudonym James S. A. Corey), The Expanse is one of the best science fiction shows out there right now. Taking a more realistic/“hard” sci-fi approach than most sci-fi TV and film while placing a lot of focus on the politics of a colonized solar system, it could be described as “Sci-fi Game of Thrones” with some accuracy.
Unfortunately, SyFy has decided to end their association with the show at the end of Season 3. While they only held first-run broadcast rights in the US and Alcon funds production themselves, SyFy’s contribution was a major factor and the show will likely not continue without a new partner in the US. Currently it seems like Amazon Prime (who currently holds exclusive US streaming rights) is our best hope, as Netflix (who currently holds almost all international streaming rights) is said to have passed on the show by some of those involved. Please help save the show - buy Season 3’s digital release on Amazon Video and watch it, pre-order Season 3 on Blu-Ray from Amazon, watch Seasons 1 and 2 on Amazon Prime Video (bump up those viewing numbers!), buy Seasons 1 and 2 on Blu-Ray from Amazon, tweet #SaveTheExpanse at Amazon and Jeff Bezos, send Jeff Bezos an email with “Save The Expanse” in the subject header, and send Amazon Video a suggestion to pick up the series through their “proper channels.” Save the show!
EDIT: Amazon has picked it up for season 4! 😄 CAN’T STOP THE WORK
