Tv Season Info

Season 4 of The Expanse, its first as a global Amazon Original, begins a new chapter for the series, with the crew of the Rocinante on a mission from the U.N. to explore new worlds beyond the Ring Gate. Humanity has been given access to thousands of Earth-like planets which has created a land rush and furthered tensions between the opposing nations of Earth, Mars and the Belt. Ilus is the first of these planets, one rich with natural resources but also marked by the ruins of a long dead alien civilization. While Earthers, Martians and Belters maneuver to colonize Ilus and its natural resources, these early explorers don?t understand this new world and are unaware of the larger dangers that await them.

Naomi's struggles, and the attention paid to those struggles, is emblematic of what makes The Expanse so effective.

There's a livewire running throughout the [first six episodes] and while nothing has boiled over yet the tensions between the characters and their warring factions sizzle with intensity.

Dec 12, 2019 | Full Review…

The anticipated fourth season of 'The Expanse' proves that its a good time to be a fan of sci-fi.

Dec 9, 2019 | Full Review…

The six episodes of the 10-episode season present a compelling story that takes the characters of the Roci into uncharted territory.

Dec 5, 2019 | Full Review…

The Expanse was always at its best when Strait and Jane were working together. With any luck, that renewed chemistry can help the show put the pedal back down after a meandering start.

Dec 5, 2019 | Full Review…

It's not hard to see why the show's writers make it a point to include all of these storylines... That said, there are moments when the inclusivity feels a little forced, especially with Avasarala.

Dec 4, 2019 | Full Review…

This is a complicated galaxy full of complicated people, and as they've grown, The Expanse has only gotten smarter, stronger, and more addictive.

Dec 12, 2019 | Full Review…

The Expanse's fourth season throws a lot of balls into the air, and in the six episodes released to critics in advance, it juggles them all impressively.

Dec 4, 2019 | Full Review…

You watch the show and wonder if it's all going to hold together just a little bit longer, and if it even deserves to.

Dec 4, 2019 | Full Review…

The Expanse remains faithful to its own look and feel, and there's really only room for one actual space-western in this town--err, crowded TV landscape.

Dec 4, 2019 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

The true brilliance of The Expanse season 4 lies in its ability to make even this subplot relate both subtly and powerfully to what's going on elsewhere in the system, and deducing those connections is a joy for the viewer.

Dec 4, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

It's this balance, this weaving of not only the large and the small issues characters face, but also how the storylines impact each other in major and minor ways that continues to make The Expanse so compelling.

    After 3 episodes of season 4, I am entirely enamored all over again. This is an amazing show, the characters are well developed, the special effects are awesome, and the story is about as good as it can be.

    Absolutely amazing from start to finish

    In this season we learn about the conflict that come with discovering a new world and it is spectacular. We find out more about the characters and it is so exciting to watch another episode after one ends. I haven't been this excited for a TV show in a very, very, long time. Side note: seeing the epic ships in space are worth a watch on it's own!

    Perfection. The ability of this show to get better, again and again, with each season is incredible. It's now officially the best space show ever done. The previous contender was Battlestar Galactica, which started strong but finished very poorly. The Expanse started "Good" and after 4 seasons has now redefined the genre and expectations of what good space sci-fi is and always should have been.

    Best Space saga you will ever see. The Expanse season 4 is as great as it has ever been.
