The Expanse on Amazon Fire TV

Some seriously good news tonight for fans of The Expanse. Amazon reportedly will revive the fan favorite. It's not official just yet, but THR says it's happening, and Deadline says it's close, and, damn it, folks really want this to happen so let's just go ahead and say it's going to happen.

From THR:

Starring Steven Strait and based on James S.A. Comedy's best-selling book series of the same name, Syfy had only first-run linear rights in the U.S. to The Expanse. Amazon Studios had streaming rights to the first three seasons of the show. Sources say Bezos is a big fan of the book and was livid that the TV series went to NBCUniversal-owned Syfy. The move is said to have ignited Bezos' demand that Amazon Studios brass find the company's version of Game of Thrones.

Syfy had decided not to renew The Expanse earlier this month, leading to the kind of online outcry you can only get in 2018.
