The Expanse Season 2 confirmed by Syfy

Syfy gives their James SA Corey TV show The Expanse a second season

The Expanse is one of Syfy’s big new shows and the network has shown that they’re fully committed to the ambitious new series by giving it a Season Two.

Spinoff Online reports that the second season of The Expanse, starring Thomas Jane, Shohreh Aghdashloo and Steven Strait, will air at some point in early 2017.

Network president Dave Howe said “The Expanse is firing on all cylinders creatively, building a passionate fan base among viewers and critics alike, and delivering on Syfy’s promise of smart, provocative science fiction entertainment. We can’t wait to see where the story takes us in season two.”

The show started on 14 December in the US and is still airing on Syfy.

“Hundreds of years in the future, humans have colonized the solar system. The U.N. controls Earth. Mars is an independent military power. The planets rely on the resources of the Asteroid Belt, where air and water are more precious than gold. For decades, tensions have been rising between these three places. Earth, Mars and the Belt are now on the brink of war. And all it will take is a single spark.

It is within this future that The Expanse begins. The series follows the case of a missing young woman that brings a hardened detective and a rogue ship’s captain together in a race across the solar system that will expose the greatest conspiracy in human history.”
