Syfy cancels ‘The Expanse’ after three seasons

May 11 (UPI) — Syfy has canceled space drama The Expanse which is currently in the middle of its third season.

The show’s season finale which is scheduled to premiere on June 27, will now act as a series finale. Alcon Television Group which fully finances and produces the series, has plans to shop the series around to other buyers, Deadline reported.

The Expanse, starring Steven Strait, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Dominique Tipper, Cas Anvar, Wes Chatham, Frankie Adams and Thomas Jane, was based on the James S.A. Corey book series of the same name. The show depicted how humanity has colonized the solar system.

Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby served as showrunners.

“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,” president of entertainment networks at NBCU Cable Entertainment Chris McCumber said in a statement.

“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.”
