Amazon saves ‘The Expanse’ by picking it up for Season 4

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos announced yesterday at the International Space Development Conference that “The Expanse is saved.” The space drama was canceled by SciFi Network earlier this month after airing three seasons. A campaign to save the show by its fans and creators began soon after which specifically targeted Amazon and Bezos, who is said to be a fan of the series. Rumors that Amazon was in talks to pick up the show began circling earlier this week and now it’s official that there will be a 4th season of The Expanse and it will be an Amazon Prime original. The first two seasons of the series are already available on Prime Video and it’s probably safe to say the third season will be added soon enough.

Amazon reportedly in talks to pickup Season 4 of ‘The Expanse’

After SyFy Network announced the cancellation of The Expanse 10 days ago after three well received seasons, fans and the shows creators have launched a campaign to save The Expanse by finding it a new home. Those efforts have included numerous tweets directed at Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to continue the show as an Amazon original series. It appears that those efforts have paid off because numerous Hollywood news outlets, including Variety and Deadline, are reporting that Amazon is in talks to pickup the series for a fourth season. It’s not a done deal yet, as some news organizations are incorrectly reporting. Writer and Producer of The Expanse, Daniel Abdraham, tweeted just minutes ago that Variety’s headline, which states Amazon is in talks to revive the show, is more accurate than The Hollywood Reporter’s headline, which states that it is a done deal.
