Teaser for Syfy's The Expanse Features Zero-Gravity Sex... and Other Stuff

The Expanse

On Thursday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, Syfy premiered a sizzle reel for The Expanse, which network president Dave Howe touted as the cabler’s “most ambitious series to date.”

Set 200 years in the future, after mankind has colonized the solar system, the 10-episode thriller follows a hardened detective (Thomas Jane, Hung) and a rogue ship’s captain (Steven Strait, Magic City) as their investigation into a missing young woman evolves into a race across the solar system to expose the greatest conspiracy in human history.

The cast also includes Emmy winner Shohreh Aghdashloo (House of Saddam, 24: Where’s Behrooz?), Dominique Tipper (Vampire Academy), Cas Anvar (Olympus), Wes Chatham (Hunger Games: Mockingjay) and Florence Faivre (The Following), while Jonathan Banks (Breaking Bad), Paulo Costanzo (Royal Pains) and Jay Hernandez (Gang Related) are among Season 1’s guest stars.

The Expanse will premiere sometime during 2015.

  1. Can’t see it. I’ll have to take your word for it.

  2. KMG says:

    Wow, that looks totally depressing and unwatchable.

  3. Daisy says:

    Seems a bit of a downer but I’m in.

  4. I read the books because they got good reviews through Google play, and they were not good.

    I can’t see Thomas Jane as the detective, as in the books, he was a washed up cop that was on the very downside of his career, someone who was much older….but whatever. It’s SyFy, I stopped expecting good programming from them a while ago.

  5. Joey Padron says:

    Trailer for the show looks alright. They have a good cast for the show. I’ll check out the first episode.

  6. James D says:

    looks pretty good. has a good cast around it so I’ll give it a watch.

  7. S. says:

    Haven’t like SyFy channel for awhile, only watch Haven now. This does look like something I could be interested in, so I might check it out, at least for a few episodes

  8. lizo says:

    the fact that Shohreh Aghdashloo is in it and it’s set in space is pretty much the only reason I’ll watch.

  9. puck says:

    I miss Eureka.

  10. 24: Where’s Behrooz? Hahahaha. I thought for sure that on Homeland this year, Ayan was Behrooz. I thought we finally found him. :(
