Be nice if this got picked up - not least as its production model seems to be akin to the idea behind the Dredd TV show.

Personally its an okay watch but marred by terrible acting from too many key characters (no more than 'Gunnie' (sic) who is just awfully unconvincing. The lead guy isn't much better. Was a shame when the detective left the show (no spoilers - but I assume that was the end of him early in season 2) as he was easily the most watchable thing. Production was great - the Earth Councillor's outfit were always fabulous looking affairs and the B cast did decent work. 
If I'd known it was harmless I would have killed it myself.

Well my post went awry but all it amounted to was 'Well that's a shame'. Was nice for Syfy to make decent sci-fi for a bit.

'The Expense' ‘The Expanse’: Amazon In Talks To Pick Up Space Series After Syfy Cancellation

There is hope forThe Expanse beyond its upcoming third season, which will be the sci-fi drama’s last one on Syfy. I hear Alcon Television Group, which fully finances and produces The Expanse, is in conversations with Amazon about picking up the critically praised series for Season 4. Sources stress the talks are still preliminary. Reps for both companies declined comment.

Smart move from Amazon, who could do with a few more critically acclaimed shows. I'm surprised Netflix didn't jump at this one though.

I believe Amazon already had the streaming rights, which would have made it difficult for another online service to pick it up.

The first two seasons are on Netflix as well as Amazon Prime. Perhaps the deal meant Amazon got first dibs – or it just jumped in before Netflix did.

Netflix have international streaming rights, Amazon have US domestic, which is likely a determining factor.

The show never really grabbed me - perhaps I'll give it another go at some point - but good news for fans - it's officially been picked up by Amazon.
