Syfy cancels The Expanse

The ExpanseIn the midst of the show’s third successful season, cable broadcaster Syfy surprises fans of The Expanse by announcing the show’s cancellation; the decision is made not due to ratings, but due to post-broadcast distribution rights on streaming services, rights which are controlled by the production company and not Syfy. A fan campaign begins to find a new home for the series, with Netflix and Amazon Prime seen as the best contenders to rescue the show.
