So much happened in last night’s season two finale of The Expanse—not all of it clear—we had no choice but to get some answers. We talked to executive producer Naren Shankar about how the second season of the acclaimed scifi series was planned, how it was made, and where it’s going in season three. Oh, and also, why…
Last night’s episode of The Expanse was a huge one. Fans of the books the Syfy show is based on finally got to see the climax of the first book realized onscreen. And people who are just fans of the show saw an end for a character they probably didn’t expect.
We’ve talked before about how good The Expanse, Syfy’s adaptation of the book series by James S.A. Corey, is, and this won’t probably won’t be the last time, either, But tucked into last night’s episode was a scene between Amos and Holden so good that we had to ask the actors involved about it.
It’s not even January 1 yet but we’re already counting down to February 1, when Syfy’s The Expanse returns with a double episode to kick off its second season. So far, we’ve gotten a few trailers and a behind-the-scenes peek with megafan Adam Savage—but this clip of a heated clash on Mars is our best glimpse yet.
Zach Galligan says work on a third Gremlins movie is well under way. Denis Villeneuve talks about the excitement of making Blade Runner 2049. There could be even more death to come in the final season of The Vampire Diaries. Plus, a new look at the returns of The Expanse and Agents of SHIELD. To me, my Spoilers!
The Expanse cast and crew were at Comic-Con to discuss their show in front of a room packed with fans of Syfy’s smart, thrilling adaptation of James S.A. Corey’s book series—set hundreds of years in the future, when humanity is dangerously close to war.
The Shannara Chronicles is a strange TV show. It’s clearly the result of some producer’s desire to replicate the crazy success of HBO’s Game of Thrones, but it fell way short. And maybe the reason is because Shannara is a standard-issue epic fantasy, and Game of Thrones is something different.
Star Wars is over for now. The Expanse is off the air, and we have months to wait until Star Trek comes back to the big screen. So where are we going to get our recommended dosage of crazy-ass space action? The Far Stars trilogy by Jay Allan is a fun, wacky ride.
The Expanse just finished its first season—leaving us with ten episodes of a show which beat all our highest expectations and made Syfy a destination in a way that it hasn’t been since Battlestar Galactica. How?
Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 could feature a (literally) huge Marvel comics character. Bryan Singer teases the Game of Thrones-esque mutant plight in X-Men Apocalypse. Arrow teases another live-action hero. Plus oodles of pictures from The Originals, The Expanse, Agent Carter, and Lucifer. To me, my Spoilers!
“Rock Bottom,” true to its title, basically spent an hour trying to one-up itself in how dark and bad things could get for its characters. The remaining Canterbury survivors get off the lightest. The random characters on the freighter—Mateo and Diogo—have it brutal. But Dawes and Miller get it worst of all.
This week, things start to get back to normal! Supergirl, Limitless, Teen Wolf, American Horror Story, Heroes Reborn, Reign, and Nova all return!

In addition to being the combination space opera/political thriller we’ve been waiting ages for, The Expanse is also home to some gorgeous spaceship and space station porn. And now that we’ve got a look at some of the concept art for the show, we’re awed all over again.
Syfy’s renewed The Expanse, the TV show based on a series of novels by James S.A. Corey, for a second season. The first four episodes have already aired, and The Expanse is already one of our favorite new shows. Watch it here.

This has been a tough year. Pop culture let us down in many ways, even as our political system and our social institutions revealed a deeper seam of ugliness. But speculative fiction still offers us hope: not just optimism about human ingenuity, but actual reasons to look forward and keep our heads up.
Sherlock returns for one night only! Galavant is back for season two! And all Hell is finally unleashed in the season finale of Ash vs Evil Dead! There’s also a ton of New Year’s marathons. And just what the heck is Yokai Watch, anyway? All this, and more, on This Week’s TV!
The Expanse is pulling off something amazing. It’s showing a solar-system-wide conflict through the experiences of just the characters we’re following. It’s a really tough rope to walk, and they’re doing it wonderfully.

In “The Big Empty,” The Expanse is mainly concerned with introducing characters that got the short shrift in the premiere and making strong connections between our three plots. They also make a huge change from the books.
