Season 3 of SYFY’s The Expanse will premiere Wednesday, April 11 at 9/8c. Picking up immediately following the emotional and suspenseful second season finale, the 13-episode third season finds Earth, Mars and The Belt at war, with each competing entity vying for control. Now, more than ever, the mission to unlock the secret of the protomolecule reaches an all-time high and every decision made could jeopardize the survival of the solar system.
The Expanse unfolds across a colonized galaxy 200 years in the future, when two strangers become unwittingly swept up in a vast conspiracy. Based on the New York Times bestselling book series collectively known as “The Expanse,” written by Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck (under the pen name James S. A. Corey), the series stars Steven Strait, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Dominique Tipper, Cas Anvar, Wes Chatham and Frankie Adams. This season also introduces Elizabeth Mitchell and David Strathairn as recurring guest stars.
Academy Award®-nominated screenwriting duo Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby (“Children of Men,” “Iron Man”) serve as executive producers alongside showrunner Naren Shankar (“Almost Human,” “Grimm”). The Expanse is produced by Alcon Television Group (ATG), a division of Alcon Entertainment.
