The fourth season of “The Expanse” will launch on its new home, Prime Video, later this year, Amazon announced Tuesday.
But if you can’t wait till then for new episodes of the former Syfy series, then you can at least take comfort in the fact that Season 3 will be available to Prime members in over 200 countries and territories on Feb. 8. And Seasons 1-2 — which are currently available in the US — will become available internationally that same day.
The series, created by Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby, follows a police detective in the asteroid belt, the first officer of an interplanetary ice freighter and an earth-bound United Nations executive slowly discover a vast conspiracy that threatens the Earth’s rebellious colony on the asteroid belt.
Prime Video rescued “The Expanse” after it was canceled by Syfy last May. Following some serious fan outcry, Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon, made the Season 4 pickup announcement himself at the National Space Society’s International Space Development Conference in Los Angeles, where the cast and showrunner were in attendance.
“The Expanse” stars Thomas Jane (“Deep Blue Sea”), Oscar-nominee Shohreh Asgdashloo (“Star Trek: Beyond”), Steve Strait (“The Covenant”), Dominique Tipper (“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”), Wes Chatam (“The Hunger Games”), Cas Anvar (“Punisher: War Zone”), Frankie Adams (“Mortal Engines”) and Shawn Doyle (“Frequency”), Chad L. Coleman (“The Walking Dead”), Florence Faivre (“The Sia Renaissance”), and Cara Gee (“Empire of Dirt”).
The show is produced by Alcon Television Group. Naren Shankar acts as showrunner.
