    The Expanse Canceled by Syfy

    They cancelled Season 4.

    Yeah, this is about as dumb of a move as Syfy could make. I mean, it had a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Syfy had a good thing here and they cancel it? Stupid. There is some good news though, Alcon TV Group is going to shop it around to other buyers. The Expanse, a Netflix Original, perhaps? It wouldn't be the first show they've saved. So Syfy may not want to do Season 4, but chances are it will still happen. You'd have to be a monumental moron to not see there's demand for this show.

      I think something like in case of paid DLC is a thing. It doesn't mean if small group likes it or not - it's all about shareholders and income.

        It might end up something like that, where a small group could fund the next season, but I doubt it. The Expanse is one of the most expensive shows to make. While I think Syfy is completely dumb for canceling it, I can understand the fiancial bit of it. This is why I think Netflix or Amazon would be a good fit for it. They actually don't care how much a show costs to make or what the ratings are, as long as it drives subscriptions. Either way, it's sad news, but there is the possibility of it continuing.

              I really and honestly would like to know whose decision this was.

              So we could put their pictures up on big posters. And say these are the poster childs for stupid!

                Y'know, the funniest thing is that plot for the TV series were initially... plot for a video game. I actually would love to play a space-trading game based on The Expanse.

                  Was it a video game or a tabletop game? I think the original book series might have been a tabletop game world that Ty had created. Wouldn't surprise me too much if the TV series had been written as a game first. Makes me wonder if they'll go back to that.

                  Oh, as to the show, here's the latest so far.

                    I think it was video game...

                    Ah yes, it was. Funny enough, Corey (or rather, authors writing in cooperative) criticize Mass Effect as being one of the worst ways to end trilogy - that's why we don't have a video game.

                    Myself I see that, since there's a specific vibe in ME3 after Drew Karpyshyn was kicked from BioWare by EA.

                      Amazon is currently in talks to rescue The Expanse from cancellation, numerous entertainment outlets including Variety and Deadline are reporting.
