Syfy has cancelled The Expanse after three seasons. The space drama will not be renewed for Season 4, Deadline reports.
RenewCancelTV has further confirmed the cancellation.
Chris McCumber, President, Entertainment Networks for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, said of the cancellation:
“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.”
Added Alcon Entertainment co-founders and co-CEOs Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson:
“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.”
The Expanse Season 4 is dead at Syfy, however the series will be shopped to other outlets. Stay tuned to find out if the space drama finds new life elsewhere.
