The season finale of The Expanse (Syfy, Tuesday, 10/9C) is thrilling, scary and just a wee bit convoluted – pretty much like the rest of season one. It ramps up the danger while answering some big questions and setting some very big wheels in motion.
Then it ends on a cliffhanger of epic proportions…
The Expanse (Syfy, Tuesdays, 10/9C) has been carefully weaving together a series of plotlines involving political leaders on Earth, the survivors of an ice mining ship called the Canterbury and a cop who’d been given the task of finding the heir to an Earther billionaire who’d gone missing.
Along the way, the events lurking behind these plotlines had made for a cold-war-heating-up scenario between Earth, Mars and the people of asteroid belt. Now, however, things are coming together – not necessarily in a good way.
Syfy’s next big event series, The Expanse, has begun production with a 2015 premier scheduled. Based on the series of novels by Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck (under the pseudonym James S.A. Cortey), who will be executive producers on the series. The Expanse follows the investigation of a missing woman – that turns into ‘a race across the solar system to expose the greatest conspiracy in human history.
The series stars Thomas Jane (Hung) and Stephen Strait (Magic City) as, respectively, a hardened detective and a rogue ship’s captain. Oscar®-nomine Shoreh Agdashloo and Jonathan Banks (Breaking Bad) will be among the guest stars of the first season. For more, follow the jump.
The Expanse, Syfy and Alcon TV’s new space opera, has added Emmy®-winner/Oscar®-nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo and Magic City alumna Steven Strait in major roles.
Aghdashloo will play Chrisjen Avasarala, a politician who has risen through the ranks of Earth’s governing party without ever standing for election; Strait takes on the role of Holden, an officer on an ice-carrying freighter who finds himself drawn into a dangerous plot. The two join Thomas Jane who plays a world-weary detective who is searching for a missing girl.
The Expanse will premiere in 2015. Follow the jump for further details.
I’m going to let you in on a little secret. I love prehistoric man movies. One Million Years B.C. [Raquel Welch], Quest for Fire [Rae Dawn Chong] and even Caveman [Barbara Bach] – I loved them all. So, it is with great regret that I have to tell you that 10,000 B.C. is quite possibly the worst film Roland Emmerich has ever made [and that, my friends, is saying something!].
