the expanse season 4

UPDATE: Alcon Entertainment co-founders and co-CEOs Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson have issued a statement, confirming that Amazon is picking up the show: “We couldn’t be more excited that The Expanse is going to continue on Amazon Prime! We are deeply grateful that Jeff Bezos, Jen Salke, and their team at Amazon have shown such faith in our show.”

Our original story from May 22, 2018 follows below.

Amazon Studios is poised to rescue The Expanse after Syfy cancelled the beloved science-fiction show just 10 days ago. But fan outcry — and business-savvy producers — may have saved yet another show that was a victim of this year’s merciless cancellation axe.

krypton season 2 teaser

With Syfy’s Krypton renewed for a second season after a rocky but promising debut, the network is already on top of promoting the sophomore outing. The first Krypton season 2 teaser has been released, offering no new footage, but giving a tantalizing picture of what the second season of the Superman prequel will explore.

krypton the phantom zone review

Holy finale, Batman! The Krypton season 1 finale, “The Phantom Zone,” has actually done what I’d hope it’d do – start an alternate reality for Krypton and even Superman himself. After a rough start, the bulk of this season, and its finale, can be truly labeled a success.

However, I have to say that with the way the series began, I still wish there was some time-management protocol in place so writers could realize that backloading the series isn’t the best way to start out. All of the cool reveals, from Zod to everything revealed at the end of this episode, could have made for a more engaging season if they were dispersed throughout instead of just dropped in the last few episodes. But better late than never, right?

Stranger Things 3

It’s a busy time for genre television. Syfy has renewed its Superman prequel series Krypton for a second season, AMC’s horror series The Terror – which we thought came to an end last night – may return for a second season of its own, and a few cast members of Stranger Things 3 have teased fans can expect from the upcoming third season of Netflix’s beloved sci-fi hit. Read more about all three below.

krypton hope review

We’re only one episode away from the end of the first season of Krypton, and it feels like this episode,”Hope”, regressed mightily in its attempt to progress the story. Things happened just because. You can clearly tell the writing team was ramping up all of their plotpoints faster than necessary just to get to the point where Brainiac finally shows his true form.

It’s annoying! Just last week, I wrote that the show was definitely getting more and more entertaining. I thought that perhaps the show had ironed out its time management issues. But alas, it has not. The same mismanagement of time that allowed the show to go through three to four episodes without moving the plot along has now forced the writers to speed things up because there are only 10 episodes comprising this season, and a lot has to get done in those 10 episodes. If only the prior episodes were paced better, we could have gotten to Brainiac much quicker, and the story would be in a much better place by now.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

In December 2015, The Expanse debuted on SYFY and, almost overnight, sparked a loyal and loving fanbase. Based on author James S.A. Corey’s (writing team Ty Franck and Daniel Abraham) book series, The Expanse was embraced by fans of the books and viewers who had been looking for a show to love since Battlestar Galactica ended in 2009.

And then, after three seasons, it was cancelled. Far, far too soon.

nightflyers teaser

When George R.R. Martin‘s 1980 novella Nightflyers got its first feature film adaptation in 1987, the sci-fi film was the height of camp: low-budget, self-indulgent, and just plain weird. And though the cable network Syfy has a fair share of shows that embody exactly that kind of camp, its Nightflyers adaptation couldn’t be further from that description. The creepy, bloody, and freaky Nightflyers teaser gives us a glimpse of the serious and brooding Syfy take that Martin’s science-fiction horror story deserves.

tremors tv show trailer

Tremors is the little horror series that could. What began with a terrific 1990 movie about giant man-eating worms wreaking havoc in a small Nevada town spawned an unlikely franchise: five not-always-awful direct-to-video sequels and a short-lived 2003 TV series on the Sci-Fi Channel. Even as Sci-Fi became Syfy, Tremors kept on trucking…and then came news that a new TV show was in the works, Syfy was making it, and original star Kevin Bacon was set to return as the charmingly lunkheaded hero, Valentine McKee.

However, the new Tremors was axed before it could even be born, with Syfy pulling the plug just a few weeks ago. But the internet is a wild place, a vast desert where just about anything can come lurching out of the ground. Like a very cool trailer for the Tremors TV show, filled with giant worms, dusty locales, and, of course, lots of Kevin Bacon wearing a cowboy hat.
