We already knew there were plans to make an Expanse TV series, but now those plans have become slightly more concrete as the TV network Syfy has ordered a full season, reportedly winning a bidding war with another content producer to acquire the project.
The order consists of a 10 episode long season based on the first book, Leviathan Wakes. Sean Daniel and Jason Brown of the Sean Daniel Company developed the original pitch, with Academy Award-nominated screenwriting duo Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby (Children of Men, Iron Man), and will also executive produce.
- A thriller set two hundred years in the future, The Expanse follows the case of a missing young woman who brings a hardened detective and a rogue ship’s captain together in a race across the solar system to expose the greatest conspiracy in human history.
