THE EXPANSE Wraps Production On Season 4, Burn Gorman And More Join The Amazon Prime Series

The Expanse has officially wrapped production on its fourth season. The critically acclaimed sci-fi series will make its debut on Amazon Prime later this year, after having been rescued following Syfy cancelling the series after three seasons. The first three seasons are currently available for streaming on Amazon.

As fans may remember, the third season ended with an epic finale in which James Holden (Steven Strait) saves humanity from itself and the Ring, leading to 1300 other ring portals appearing to humanity. As Holden then notes, this newfound  access to a wealth of potential habitable systems will lead to "another blood-soaked gold rush" as mankind wages a new war over resources, one which may destabilize Earth, Mars, and the Belt.

The upcoming season will adapt the fourth of The Expanse novels, Cibola Burn, which largely took place on Ilus. This planet, which resides in one of the new inhabitable systems, has previously been described as "the battleground of new settlers, security forces and the protomolecule in The Expanse Season 4." 

With filming on Season 4 officially wrapped, we now have some cast announcements to share, including a very familiar face joining the series as an antagonist, as well as other behind-the-scenes pictures celebrating the end of filming.

Jess Salguiero (Channel Zero, The Strain, The Boys) will appear in an undisclosed role, but it is likely that it will be a somewhat prominent character since Jess revealed she has been working on Season 4 for the past four months. She is extremely excited about her character and the experience she had working on the show.
