The Expanse is a science fiction adventure in the classic sense. You have the hard-boiled detective played by Thomas Jane and the ex-military, roguish space captain played by Steven Strait. And the two are working at opposite ends of the same mystery for all of season one. Now, as season 2 debuts February 2017, the two have come together to figure out a threat to all of humanity.
The series is based on the novel of James S. A. Corey (the collective pen name for authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck). The Expanse novel is broken into the first two seasons… so if you’re reading ahead at home like I am, then you know what’s coming. But there is a lot added to the series and they may get three seasons out of it.
Here is the trailer for season two:
