A Message from Naren Shankar, show runner of The Expanse

I guess now we really all are Belters. A tribe without a country. I've been on shows that were so awful and so awful to work on, that I would pray for cancellation (mercifully granted). I've been on shows that had good, long runs, so when the end came it was okay because we’d said what we wanted to say and we could go out with some dignity. But I have never been on a show where the story, the […]

A Message From Naren Shankar

I guess now we really all are Belters. A tribe without a country.

I’ve been on shows that were so awful and so awful to work on, that I would pray for cancellation (mercifully granted). I’ve been on shows that had good, long runs, so when the end came it was okay because we’d said what we wanted to say and we could go out with some dignity. But I have never been on a show where the story, the characters, the look, the sound, the audience engagement, the reviews, everything were clicking like The Expanse. So getting cancelled now, like this… I’m still trying to put my head around it.

The passion of our fans has been matched only by the passion of the incredibly talented cast and crew who put their hearts and souls into every episode. Thank you all for that.

Alcon TV Studios is doing everything they can to find continued life for the series. I the meantime, keep watching and (hopefully) raving — and making noise. Let people know what they’ve been missing. We are only halfway through the season and there is SO MUCH MORE to come. You will not want to miss it.

Yam Seng Beltalowda!

Naren

AN OLD ENEMY RETURNS
In the thousand-sun network of humanity’s expansion, new colony worlds are struggling to find their way. Every new planet lives on a knife edge between collapse and wonder, and the crew of the aging gunship Rocinante have their hands more than full keeping the fragile peace.
In the vast space between Earth and Jupiter, the inner planets and belt have formed a tentative and uncertain alliance still haunted by a history of wars and prejudices. On the lost colony world of Laconia, a hidden enemy has a new vision for all of humanity and the power to enforce it.
New technologies clash with old as the history of human conflict returns to its ancient patterns of war and subjugation. But human nature is not the only enemy, and the forces being unleashed have their own price. A price that will change the shape of humanity — and of the Rocinante — unexpectedly and forever…
