One of the best sci-fi drama series going right now is about to warp on over to Amazon. The Expanse, which lived on Syfy for three seasons before getting cancelled, gets new life thanks to the streaming service and support from loyal fans. Not only will the space-faring adaptation of James S.A. Corey‘s novels by series co-creators Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby get a fourth season this winter, it’s already been renewed for a fifth.

About The Expanse Seasons 4:

Season 4 of The Expanse, its first as a global Amazon Original, begins a new chapter for the series with the crew of the Rocinante on a mission from the U.N. to explore new worlds beyond the Ring Gate. Humanity has been given access to thousands of Earth-like planets which has created a land rush and furthered tensions between the opposing nations of Earth, Mars and the Belt. Ilus is the first of these planets, one rich with natural resources but also marked by the ruins of a long dead alien civilization. While Earthers, Martians and Belters maneuver to colonize Ilus and its natural resources, these early explorers don’t understand this new world and are unaware of the larger dangers that await them.
