Season 3 of Syfy’s The Expanse will be its last
Syfy’s The Expanse will end its run on the network after the Season 3 finale airs in early July.
According to Deadline, Syfy will not renew the space drama for a fourth season, but Alcon Television Group will shop the series to other potential buyers, so there is hope for fans wishing to see more of the series.
The President of Entertainment Networks for NBCUniversal Cabel had this to say about the Expanse’s cancelation:
“The Expanse transported us across the solar system for three brilliant seasons of television. Everyone at Syfy is a massive fan of the series, and this was an incredibly difficult decision. We want to sincerely thank The Expanse’s amazing cast, crew and all the dedicated creatives who helped bring James S.A. Corey’s story to life. And to the series’ loyal fans, we thank you most of all.”
The Expanse is based on the popular science fiction novels written by James S.A. Corey. Currently, there are 7 books in the series with the 8th title slated to release later this year, so there is definitely more story left to tell. The Alcon Group, who finances the series, responded to the news of the cancelation:
“We are very disappointed the show will not be returning to Syfy. We respect Syfy’s decision to end this partnership but given the commercial and critical success of the show, we fully plan to pursue other opportunities for this terrific and original IP.”
