Amazon Prime Video is gearing up to launch “The Expanse: Season 3,” and the platform will be hosting the previous seasons to attract new viewers ahead of the premiere.
If you’re already a fan, Season 3 of “The Expanse” will launch on February 8th, but new viewers can stream Season 1 and Season 2 as early as today right here on Amazon Prime Video. There’s still more “The Expanse” on the way, with Season 4 set to debut on the video-streaming service in 2019.
Amazon confirmed today that Season 3 of “The Expanse” will be available to Prime members in over 200 countries and territories on February 8th, giving Sci-Fi fans something to stream during a usually quiet month on television. While Season 1 and Season 2 are currently available in the US, they will become available internationally on February 8th.
If you are new to the series, the show is based on novels by James S. A. Corey. “The Expanse” is a critically-acclaimed, award-winning political science fiction series set hundreds of years in the future. Humans have colonized the solar system with The United Nations controlling Earth and an independent military power inhabiting Mars. Desperate for air and water, the series begins with Earth and Mars on the verge of war over the resources found in the Asteroid Belt. With few options for survival, allies struggle to fight over the future of humanity.
As we mentioned earlier, Prime Video will be the home of Season 4 of “The Expanse.” Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon, made the announcement in May 2018 at the National Space Society’s International Space Development Conference in Los Angeles where the cast and showrunner were in attendance.
Co-created and written by Academy Award nominees Mark Fergus (Iron Man) and Hawk Otsby (Children of Men), the series stars three-time Golden Globe nominee Thomas Jane (Deep Blue Sea), Oscar-nominee Shohreh Asgdashloo (Star Trek: Beyond), Steve Strait (The Covenant), Dominique Tipper (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), Wes Chatam (The Hunger Games), Cas Anvar (Punisher: War Zone), Frankie Adams (Mortal Engines) and Shawn Doyle (Frequency), Chad L. Coleman (The Walking Dead), Florence Faivre (The Sia Renaissance), and Cara Gee (Empire of Dirt).
Alcon Television Group produces “The Expanse” and Naren Shankar is the showrunner.
