A six-hour limited series, adapted from Arthur C. Clarke's novel, Childhood's End will also air on Tuesday and Wednesday, Dec. 15 and Dec. 16 at 8/7c. Mike Vogel, Charles Dance, Yael Stone and Julian McMahon star in the drama which takes place after a peaceful invasion of Earth by aliens who promise to eliminate poverty, war and sickness, but whose intentions aren't quite what they seem.

Set 200 years in the future, The Expanse follows a detective (Thomas Jane) and a rogue ship captain (Steven Strait) as they team up to find a missing young woman and unravel the largest conspiracy in human history.
