I've watched the first season. I thought it was good, but still not the A quality of Altered Carbon or Black Mirror or Game of Thrones, that I referenced in the Best TV thread. But I very much like how they presented modern economic arguments in a distant future... the emphasis on bone loss was very compelling... the Portuguese tinged patois is great, although it seems cribbed from Speaker of the Dead.

But still... it's got some silly looking Star Trek style "Aliens" and some distinctly B quality actors... which is not to say I can't enjoy it... I'll certainly watch the second season. I just don't put it in the top top tier.

Cancelled.

https://deadline.com/2018/05/the-expanse-canceled-syfy-after-three-seasons-to-be-shopped-1202388026/

Hopefully all new sci-fi shows avoid Syfy from now on.

Well that's a damn shame - this season is intense.

Great, this should free up SyFy's budget for more reality television.

Alcon owns the rights to this show and is trying to shop it to other networks. Right now Amazon is the best bet. You can send a message to Amazon streaming and ask them to pick it up.

Personally is one is the best Sci Fis I have seen. It's the smartest show on TV. I love their commitment to physics and plausible technology from Earth. I find out that I absolutely love hard sci fi. I love the subtle details of this show. I will be very disappointed if it is canceled.

The Expanse is one of the best sci fi shows since BSG. Sad.

The second season was a huge improvement over the first imo. So there's going to be a third and no more? Crap.

Bezos just announced that Amazon is picking up The Expanse!
Awesome.  And a smart move on his part.

EDIT: Hoo boy, I appreciate what Amazon did, but people need to come up off of Bezos' junk. The praise he is getting for this is unseemly.

Seriously.  I just don't understand Syfy.  They seem to have no connection to their viewers at all.  If one channel should be a safe place for quality sci-fi that a viewership as high as mainstream shows like NCIS or something, it should be Syfy.  I mean, I can't imagine they were losing money on the Expanse.

I am feeling very positive toward Jeff Bezos and Amazon right now. 

Also, I read that it was profitable but not as profitable as their usual crap.  It has to do with SyFy only making money off live airings and who watches live. 

More programming like this and maybe their fan base will improve a little, though?  But who cares.  Cable needs to cease to exist.

I just started watching this like a week ago and have already finished the first two seasons.  Never read the books, so I’m coming at it fresh, and it’s among my favorite SciFi shows.  I find the belters fascinating, love the political machinations, and enjoy how hard they keep the sci-fi (with allowances for the big mystery, of course). The idea of a Mormon exodus is fascinating.  I loved the character of Miller, in the first season especially, and

.

That said, I haven’t seen S3 because SyFi only streams the last five episodes.  I’ll wait for it to come to Amazon Prime, I guess.  I’m glad Amazon picked it up.

  I loved the character of Miller, in the first season especially, and I think the show will suffer from his loss.
