The Expanse Season 7 name is fitting, as it felt like the show could go on for ever. The sci-fi drama, which was based on James S A Corey’s book series, was cancelled by SyFy in 2018. It lasted just three seasons.
This show, like the humans in The Expanse Season 7 colonized the solar system’s surface, won over hearts all around the globe. George RR Martin, Patton Oswalt, and Wil Wheaton were just a few of the many celebrities who campaigned to The Expanse’s return.
It paid off! Amazon Prime Video purchased the show and ordered three more seasons. Then, it was cancelled again after season six.
Naren Shankar’s Story on The Reason
Naren Shankar (showrunner of The Expanse) told io9 money was the main reason. This is also why season six was reduced from ten to six episodes.
You almost always agree on the amount of money that you will spend to make the show. That’s how it was decided. Six episodes were made. It is always a bit of negotiation. Were we able to do 10? Absolutely. Were we able to do eight? Certainly. It would have taken us six hours to complete the season, I believe.”
While fans may be sad to see the show end, they can take solace in knowing that season six ends exactly where book six’s climax does. This is also where season six ends. Because book seven, Persepolis Rising takes place thirty years after the conclusion of book six. Each character in a seventh season would need to be made older with CGI and makeup.
What is the plot of The Expanse Season 7?
The Expanse is a science fiction thriller set two hundred years in the future. It’s also known as “The Expanse”. The story centers on the disappearance and search for the greatest conspiracy in human history by a young woman.
Who will appear in The Expanse Season 7?
The majority of the cast is expected to return for the seventh season. Cas Anvar will again play Alex Kamal, while Steven Strait will reprise his role as James “Jim” Holden. Clarissa Mao will play Nadine Nicole. Cara Gee will be played by Jasai Chase Owens and Josephus Aloisus Miller. Frankie Adams will be played by Roberta “Bobbie” Draper. Florence Faivre (Julie “Julie”) Andromeda Mao), Shohreh Vavas (Chrisjen Anvas) will also be part of the cast.
What did the writers say about cancellation?
In 2020, the cancellation of the show was announced by writers Daniel Abraham Ty Franck called it a “pause”.
Franck stated at a press conference that “after season six, we have [what we consider] a very natural break” in the story. It will be a satisfying ending to the story that we have been telling for the past five seasons. The idea of cancelling is a very old concept to me.
Abraham stated that “we’ve been discussing this since the initial time we were cancelled.” Abraham said that the show has been in discussion about the future of the series, and the six-season story arc was always an option. This is not something that we need to rush to achieve.”
It’s a good thing that season six ended in a natural and not abrupt way. However, there is still much material in the books. This could mean that The Expanse Season 7 may be able to pull off another miracle, and return for a seventh season.
Dominique Tipper’s Hints on EW Live
Dominique Tipper, Steven Strait, and Wes Chatham joined Steven Strait on EW Live. She hinted at this saying, “Look. This is the end TV show on Amazon.
Importantly, Naren Shakar, the show’s creator, would love to see a seventh season.
Shankar stated that after the “final” episode aired, it was “a wonderful time” (via EW). We love the show and its making. The future of the show is currently dependent on the studio making it, Alcon Television and Amazon, if there’s any demand.
Behind the scenes, those who worked on the show still feel the “appetite and the “desire”.
“I am sure that I am not giving away any secrets when i say that producers Ty Franck and Daniel Abraham, would love to do it. It would be incredible if you could complete the entire book series this way. Shankar stated, “I’m sure we will get there.”
