Amazon Officially Nabs The Expanse Season 4

Superfan Jeff Bezos announced it himself

Well, it can't get any more official than this, folks.

Following Syfy's cancellation of The Expanse and a lot of murmuring about its potential pickup future at Amazon Studios, the streaming service has indeed decided to give the series a fourth season, and the news comes from a very high source.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos himself confirmed that they'd been successful at saving The Expanse, telling audiences at a National Space Society event on Friday, "I was telling [the cast and crew] we were working hard at Amazon to save The Expanse, but it wasn't a done deal yet, and during dinner 10 minutes ago, I just got word that The Expanse is saved."

In a joint statement, producers Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson said, "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. We also want to thank Laura Lancaster, head of Alcon Television for her tireless efforts. We are fully aware that this wouldn't have been possible if it wasn't for the staggering outpouring of support from the most creative, hardest working sci-fi fans around the world. From reddit campaigns to airplanes, we say thank you. It worked!"

The cast and crew have since taken to social media to thank fans for their energetic campaigns to push for renewal, wherever that may happen.
