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.

Critic Reviews for The Expanse Season 4

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (3)

"The Expanse" takes it as an opportunity to reinvent itself as needed and preserve what's worked all along. It's a show that spends plenty of time dissecting the complications with changes in the very nature of gravity.

The Season 4 premiere "New Terra" was just as brilliant as I anticipated. It was rife with breathtaking visuals, Avasarala's snarky expletive-laced one-liners, new supporting characters and a new planet ready for exploration

The Expanse looks better than ever. Production values feel bumped up, the direction is more artistic and, most importantly, the illusion of the brand new planet of New Terra is utterly believable.

Dec 30, 2019 | Full Review…

The biggest differences as The Expanse transitions from Syfy to Amazon is that episode lengths vary a bit (all an hour-ish or less) and the characters get to swear a lot more. But other than that, it's the same show. Thanks, Jeff Bezos!

'The Expanse' has returned in good shape, as if it never left at all. [Full Review in Spanish]

Dec 27, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The Expanse is a must-see sci-fi drama. It has found a suitable home with Prime, one that seems very happy to give this phenomenal story the love it deserves.

Dec 23, 2019 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

The CGI may be sharper and the look of the show may be more cinematic, but the show feels essentially the same at the core. We get some new sets, but the heart of the show -- politics in space -- remains intact.

[S]mart and immersive as ever.

Dec 18, 2019 | Full Review…

In an age of peak television when everyone keeps asking what the true successor to Game of Thrones is, The Expanse has managed to become precisely that, though with far less fanfare than its fantasy-based counterpart at HBO.

Dec 17, 2019 | Full Review…

The Expanse Season 4 is a revival done right, and one that will keep you enthralled as you try to speculate where things are going.

Dec 17, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

The Expanse explodes off the screen with high sci-fi drama and action in order to tell us a big, fat, epic love story.

Dec 16, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Evocative and mysterious, "New Terra" is a wonderful re-introduction to The Expanse's slow-burn storytelling, and proof that a new home hasn't fundamentally changed television's best science fiction series.

Audience Reviews for The Expanse: Season 4

    Excellent transfer from SYfy to Amazon. Amazing show. Preferred the first three seasons though. Far too much swearing in the Amazon series.
  • Jan 26, 2020
    It's a complete mess. A car crash. Makes unnecessary and senseless changes to the book. The Earth based stuff is especially stupid but every plot line is nonsensical.

    Best sci-fi being made at the moment. Awesome 4th series.
  • 3d ago
    New season, new intrigue. Superior acting and scripts. Only downside is less "space time" but it still works. I can't wait to see the next season, it won't come soon enough. So i restarted season 1 !

    Very slick production and compelling viewing. Successfully continues to build the Expanse universe without becoming overwhelming. Moves at a good place to allow introduction of new characters and build them out. One of the best sci-fi's on screen.

    Amazing, the hype is real, The Expanse continues to be the best Sci-Fi show around, and its a strong contender for best sci-fi show ever effortlesly standing toe to toe with the likes of Babylon 5 and Farscape. If you enjoy Sci-fi this is a must, if you enjoy good story telling with strong, tridimensional characters, actual antagonists instead of roadbloacks and despise Mary Sues cosplaying as characters, this my friend, is the show for you.

    I'm a big fan of the Expanse. The show just gets better for each season. The first season was a bit slow and the acting was somewhat shaky, but these past three seasons have been nothing less than spectacular.
  • Jan 19, 2020
    Another fanastic season! Looking forward to season 5. One of the best science fiction shows on TV !
  • Jan 19, 2020
    Best scifi show I've ever seen.
  • Jan 19, 2020
    A must watch!! Overlooking the few budget limitations with regards to zero gravity this is well acted, if occasionally a slightly predictable. I hope this gets a higher budget for season 5.
