    You didn't like Abaddon's Gate? I quite liked that one. Now, the fourth one was utter trash.

    I also thought book 3 was good. The authors are really good at coming up with new characters I like just as much as the old characters.

    The narrator for the book 4 audiobook is so bad I haven't been able to get through it yet.

    Just binge watched it. Good tv, worth my time. It reminds me of The Moon is a Harsh Mistress which is one of my favourite books and it gives off some of the same vibes and elements I found interesting. Second season is weaker, some of the new characters and the direction of the plot just doesn't click for me.

    Love this show - we just burned through the first two seasons on Amazon Prime for the 3rd time. Third season premieres Wednesday at 9pmEDT/8pm CDT.

    So, the show has been dropped by SYFY after this third season.

    Alcon Television Group is looking for someone to buy it. Netflix has the international rights but are reportedly not interested in picking it up. Amazon being the one with the streaming rights for this las season seems like the best bet for keeping the show alive.

    A GoFundMe campaign reached its goal to fly a plane with a banner with the hashtag #SaveTheExpanse in front of Amazon Studio's HQ.

    It would be an utter crime if they drop this show. One of the few things I planned to get the full Bluray Set just to support the efforts.

    That's great news. Syfy just didn't have the budget to keep it going another season.

    Amazon certainly does though and they are gagging for a mainstream hit to compete with Netflix shows. I imagine that if the writers stay on, the budget will get even higher and it will probably become Prime's "big" property if the LOTR prequel series crashes and burns.

    Haha, too true. I have very low hopes for the LOTR prequel.

    I saw like 3 episodes of this and then got bored, just couldn't get into it.

    That's fair. The first season is deliberately slow though. Doesn't really pick up until Miller joins up with the Roci crew.

    The show had me with its first episode.
