While the Amazon Prime Video showrunners panel at San Diego Comic-Con didn’t have a shiny trailer ready for The Expanse season 4, they did share a sweet video from the cast and creators thanking fans for resurrecting the show. While Amazon picked up the series after it got cancelled by Syfy, it was due in large part to fans’ fervor to continue on the journey with the crew of the Roci and see the rest of James S.A. Corey’s space opera series play out on television.
Amazon Prime tweeted this video, filled with warm gratitude from the crew, some concept art for season 4, and #ScreamingFirehawks shoutouts:
Plus, showrunner Naren Shankar shared some insights on season 4 production:
- Moving to the streaming service means that language and nudity restrictions will be lifted, along with the constraints of a 43-minute episode, so that each installment can potentially be longer and “breathe” better as needed. (via)
- The series will be in 4K and HDR.
- Potential pet cameos in space??
- A clip from the panel:
The Expanse will return sometime in 2019.
