    The Expanse is one of the best Hard Sci-fi series at the moment. It is being cancelled by SyFy at the end of its 3rd Season while still having 100% Score on Rotten Tomatoes and Critical Acclaim. Fans of the show (myself included) are trying to get Streaming services to take over the project with petitions and social media campaigns. One of the fans made the really cool video above to give support and i wanted to share it with you guys.

    If you are interested in giving support to the petition you can find the link Here

    I imagine many of you will like the show and the books its originated from.

    Seems interesting to me as well something a streaming service could pickup. Not entirely sure on syfy logic to cancel it. Do you know why?

    SyFy only owns the First Air rights on US. Post Air streaming belongs to Google Play and Amazon on US. and Netflix on Rest of the World (SPACE is airing it on Canada). So they only follow the show thru Linear ratings. Show is popular but since its on paid cable on US. does not have the reach it needs for the channel (so they claim atleast) But its not the first time SyFy canned a popular show due to bs reasons so who knows entirely..

    It is very odd considering it's on it's THIRD Season, versus Firefly (for example). It seems to have a following similar to that last seen with Battlestar Galactica.

    Regardless, it is an excellent show and Netflix would be crazy not to pick it up. I mean, look at Altered Carbon and Lost in Space; don't tell me Netflix couldn't handle the IP.

    SyFy always claim that the ratings aren't good enough to justify not making more. I think that people were put off by the fact that it is hard SciFi, slow burning and wonderfully realised and not Shouty-Explodey-Exposition laden pulp SciFi. But then again, you can't really expect much from the channel that brought you such high quality TV wonders as "Stonehenge Apocalypse" and "Lavalantula".

    Hopefully Netflix or Amazon Prime will pick these up and give them some serious love.

    As the Reddit article says. SyFy is apperantly open to re-discuss if the rest of the current season gets and stays at high ratings for the remaining episodes.

    The Fanbase of /r/TheExpanse and the Dedicated Discord community are scrambling to spread the word as much as possible to get the ratings boosted.

    i agree. but this is also now at the height of social media and similar systems. if shows like Firefly and B5 had that kind of tech available at the time for the Fans of the show things might have been different.

    This is one of the issues when you bring a series of novels to the small screen. This isn't star trek where everything has to be resolved within an episode, or even a season. These are very well crafted stories that allow for the characters to expand and grow. There's so much going on that it can seem directionless, and it's a shame that it comes across that way to you. I think they're doing a good job putting across the stories of three very different solar nations on the brink of war, all pulling in different directions with different agendas. The show's pace can seem a little slow but I'm glad for that as it makes me engaged with the characters, I care what happens to them. Another thing that doesn't really endear the show to everyone is that it is 'hard' sci-fi. No phasers, transporters, few showy space battles, they don't even have super technology to help them. Not for everyone, but didn't deserve cancellation.
