Anyone who has watched Season 1 of The Expanse on Netflix will have likely been impressed by the effective manner in which blue-collar sci-fi has been brought to life, not to mention the impressive casting (particularly Thomas Jane) implemented by creators Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby, who have faithfully brought the universe depicted in James SA Corey’s books to life.
Season 2 will hopefully continue in a similar vein, and we’re looking forward to seeing what’s to come. There’s no word on when it’ll reach the UK, but hopefully we won’t have to wait as long as last time
Anways, you can read the official synopsis and watch the latest trailer for Season 2 of The Expanse:
The story of The Expanse unfolds across a colonized galaxy 200 years in the future, when two strangers – a hardened detective, Joe Miller (Thomas Jane), and a rogue ship’s captain, James Holden (Steven Strait) – become unwittingly swept up in a vast conspiracy to cover up a horrific human experiment. As Season 2 kicks off with interplanetary tensions at an all-time high, the cold war between Earth and Mars is on the brink of an all-out battle.
Thus far, the cast for Season 2 includes Thomas Jane, Steven Strait, Cas Anvar, Dominique Tipper, Wes Chatham, Florence Faivre, Shawn Doyle, Shohreh Aghdashloo and Frankie Adams.
