Media outlets are reporting that SyFy series The Expanse has been renewed for a third season.
The Expanse is a series based on the best-selling book series of the same name by Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck. The story unfolds across a colonised galaxy 200 years in the future, when two strangers become unwittingly swept up in a vast conspiracy.
President of Entertainment Networks at NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, Chris McCumber said:
The Expanse is a gorgeous, thrilling, emotional series that has quite simply raised the bar for science fiction on television. We, along with the fans, are looking forward to continuing the journey with our partners at Alcon Television Group and the series’ brilliant cast and crew.
The third season will be another 13-episode run and will be out sometime in 2018. Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby serve as showrunners on the series and also executive produce alongside Naren Shankar. The Expanse stars Steven Strait, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Dominique Tipper, Cas Anvar, Wes Chatham, Frankie Adams and Thomas Jane.
