The Expanse picked up by Amazon for Season 4



Quote:
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos made the announcement at the International Space Development Conference: where he appeared next to members of the show’s cast: “The Expanse is saved.”

Alcon Entertainment Co-Founders and Co-CEOs Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson issued a statement, confirming that Amazon would be picking up the show: “We couldn’t be more excited that The Expanse is going to continue on Amazon Prime! We are deeply grateful that Jeff Bezos, Jen Salke, and their team at Amazon have shown such faith in our show.”

I'm pretty happy about this, I would have preferred Netflix because I like more of their original content. But this is still great.

Why would the channel cancel the show in the first place? Odd.

Basically scifi had only first run broadcast righrs for the show. Alcorn paid out thw entire production costs out of pocket. Took a licensing deal to show it on scifi for first run then sold the streaming rights to amazon in us and netflix worldwide. So basically syfy was not making enough money on the time slot. This is from deciohwr all the diffrent articles on the subject.

The only show I watched on Scif and I thought, they would drop it for whatever reason. Good stuff never last on that network. BSG was one top quality show that lasted. Good for Amazon, I have Prime but netflix would have been better.

Syfy needs to make room for talentless Emilia Clarke's upcoming return to their budget monster movies.

you mean had the balls to be a young woman to disrobe on camera? Well I'll give her that, it's gotta be a skill right?

Anyway, it's a shame amazon picked it up instead of netflix BUT let's hope amazon is willing to pour in the budget into it that it deserves because I'm on book 4 and god does this story get good. I mean really fucking good.

I doubt netflix would put the money in to make it what it deserves.

I only watched half of season 1 but people rave about it all the time so I am hopefully going to watch the whole series sooner or later.

Amazon is all about stepping their game up right now to compete. It's also cool that the richest man in the world shares literary tastes with me. I'm hoping we see a lot more good stuff. I know they are making Consider Phlebas which could be a hell of a show if done right.

Particularly after the plot twist at the end of last season.
