More about the series

The series first aired in 2015 on the Syfy network. But soon the news came that Syfy Televisions is going to cut short the series till its 3 seasons. The series was officially declared canceled by Syfy Televisions. This was a bad decision that was not at all appreciated by the fans.

Expanse Season 6: Plot Update

The story is set in the future where humans have successfully colonized the solar system. The film also includes a group of antiheroes and these antiheroes unveil the places related to some conspiracies. These places threaten the fragile system of new colonization which results in the cold war.

Why Is It Ending With Season 6?

Fans of the series were lucky that the filming and post-production were done pre-pandemic. Season 5 of the series had no problem in airing and Season 5 of the series is still attracting new viewers on amazon prime. Then why is it approaching its end?

The reason is very simple. As stated above, the series is an adaptation of a novel. The book had 9 parts in total. Now for the 6th season, the story available in the novel will not be enough to attract money and an audience.

Well we all know, money is one the factor which cannot be ignored. To continue will the 6th season production unit will have to stay strong with the visual effects as an adaptation from the novel will not sound like a “natural ending”.

The visual effects and all the animated scenes that the series will be providing are no longer cheaper. This is one of the reasons why such a series will be ending with season 6.

We hope season 6 will be a standalone series for “The Expanse”. Stay tuned to know more updates and stay updated on top of updates with us.
