This series may have strong Earther legs after all.
After being cancelled by Syfy, it looks as though The Expanse could find its fourth season on Amazon.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Amazon is in talks to pick up the show for its streaming service. The Expanse is an adaption from James S. A. Corey’s book series. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is reportedly a big fan of sci-fi novel series and wasn’t happy when Syfy got the TV show.
Amazon has not commented on the situation, but producer Daniel Abraham said on Twitter that the “deal’s not closed, but the talks are real.”
Syfy announced the cancelation of The Expanse earlier this month. Though the series was fully financed and produced by Alcon Television Group, it’s likely the series was too expensive for Syfy due to not having international rights to the series which instead were held by Netflix.
Fans were not happy about the show’s cancellation, raising petitions and even renting a plane to fly over Amazon Studios in a bid to help revive the show.
