With The Expanse saved by Amazon, pre-production has begun on the revived space opera’s fourth season:
Full production on The Expanse Season 4 will run from September to December 2018, for an early 2019 release.
As for how The Expanse will change on Amazon, actor Steven Strait told EW:
It definitely loosens up the restrictions that we have. I think, when you’re on broadcast, you have a certain amount of curse words you can say, certain amount of nudity, a certain amount of violence. It definitely frees us up that way. We can kind of take the gloves off with those things. There are a few other technicalities that are different, but in many ways, I think we’re going to stay kind of true to what we’ve been doing. We haven’t really made any compromises thus far anyway.
With production under way, can The Expanse survive beyond a single season on Amazon, for Season 5? Much will depend on the success, or otherwise, of the upcoming fourth season.
Stay tuned for the very latest on the cancel/renew status of The Expanse Season 5…
