And it was then cancelled. However, Amazon has just acquired the rights and season 4 is coming by the end of 2019 on Amazon Prime. Outstanding show.
Right, as @Nelson1812 points out, seasons 1, 2, and 3 are available for streaming now.
Also, as already said, the series is excellent! It's imaginative, mature, deep, logically consistent, well acted, and solidly produced.
(BTW, I had Blue-Goo nightmares for quite a while when season 1 ended.) :shocknaz:

Goods news. The only space show which obeys the laws of orbital dynamics, a big thing in space.

I agree... and time it takes to travel vast distances etc ... not like "cellphone calls across the galaxy" like in recent Star Trek movies...

Usually plays single player.
I read the first few books, then was really pleased it was made into a series. I do like the hard SF grimy lived-in nature of the ships and space colonies. Thanks for info - didn't know there was a third series and will look out for 4.

I love it, but had a problem and lost the first 6 episodes from season 3 from my recorder and was waiting to get them back. Fortunately, they've started recording agian so I should be back to watching shortly. Actually, I just confirmed all 3 seasons are available on Amazon so there's that.

Once you figure out who is who and what is what it is excellent viewing!

So, having finished off Rome I've set my binge watching knob to The Expanse. All the episodes are on Amazon Prime and its very easy for me to use. I've started re-watching Season 2 simply because it's been too long between seasons and I forgot everything. Was a wise move as I'm half way through Episode 4 and feel good about having a clue about what is going on. Just an awesome show. Can't recommend it highly enough. (y)

Love this series! Have watched the first two seasons. Not sure if the 3rd is streaming yet or not.

I run a bookstore so I recently made sure to bring in the first 3 books in the series. I think there are at least 6 if not more. Not real sure how many of the books the TV series covers, maybe the first 3? Have purchased Leviathan Wakes myself but have not read it yet. I'm a firm believer that print is almost always better than TV/movie so, with a TV series this good, I'm looking forward to the read.
