When Syfy announced that they would not air cult sci-fi TV series The Expanse for a fourth season on May 10, 2018, thousands of fans were devastated. Before long, they took to the web to begin calling for someone - anyone - to pick up the show, organizing under a single banner: #SaveTheExpanse. The result was one of the most iconic fan uprisings in TV history.
A personal recollection of the historic #SaveTheExpanse fan campaign by The Expanse Lives's team. In this 5-part retrospective series, we take a deep dive into the movement and offer as much detail as we could gather on the events from our point of view.
The Expanse is coming to DragonCon! Dominique Tipper, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Cas Anvar and Frankie Adams will be in attendance for three days. Panels, photo-ops, signings, and several fan events will be hosted as well. Find your scheduling and other information here!
Welcome to The Expanse Lives! We hope that this website will one day grow into a thriving space for the Expanse fandom to connect, collaborate, and create. But we won’t be able to do it without your support and participation, so read on to find out what to expect from The Expanse Lives in the coming months as well as what you can do to get involved!
Thanks to the incredible, historic efforts of the cast, crew and fans of the critically acclaimed sci-fi epic, “The Expanse,” the television show has been resurrected by Amazon Studios and Alcon Entertainment for a fourth season. Just two weeks after being cancelled by Syfy, the massive grassroots effort that followed the news achieved its goal in saving the series.
The #SaveTheExpanse campaign dug in as talks between Amazon and Alcon to renew 'The Expanse' were confirmed, however many outlets erroneously reported that the show had been renewed. The campaign urged fans to keep the pressure on while talks continued in order to prove to Amazon that the show was a safe financial bet and to give it the perfect send-off on Syfy.
