Bad news for fans of the critically acclaimed TV series The Expanse. Perhaps the best sci-fi tv show in decades, but SyFy-channel decided not to buy season 4. The fans have now pulled their efforts together in an ongoing social media campaign and are bombarding Twitter and Facebook asking for a renewal of the show. Fans even crowd-funded a plain to fly in Santa Monica on top Amazon Studios HQ. Not only fans, the staff of the show are also involved.
Not all hope is lost. There are rumors of talks going on between Alcon Television Group and Amazon. According to Jim Murray, Netflix isn’t interested in acquiring The Expanse, but Amazon might be. Alcon is the company who produces and finances the show and already stated they’ll try to find new buyers.
So here are a few things you can do to try and save the Expanse. Juice up and prepare for a high-G burn!
