The Expanse Picked Up By NETFLIX International

Netflix will be bringing the hit SyFy TV series of the year to the world!

Why is this awesome news? Because now all of you across the world will finally get to see the show I love and (more importantly) get to weigh in on my episode breakdowns! Stay tuned for Ep 9 and EP 10 soon.

The Rundown

Being an American (and Texan) I pretty much figured if it happens here, it must happen in the rest of the world. It never occurred to me that most of y’all have not had a chance to see the series yet. Hopefully, I haven’t ruined anything for you.

I can tell you that if you’re even a passing fan of sci-fi, you’ll like the show for the imaginative plot and side stories that intertwine and immerse you in the TV series’ universe. Plus the spaceships, cool future tech, lasers, etc…

So, starting on November 3rd, 2016 Netflix will make the first season of The Expanse available for streaming to members outside of the U.S. and New Zealand. The second season of the show is wrapping up production now and is set to premiere sometime in early 2017 on SyFy and Netflix. I’m a bit jealous of my international Expanse fan friends. Y’all get to marathon the whole series when you get it. I’ll have to watch week to week.

The Why

Producing The Expanse is a costly undertaking for SyFy. The scope of the show is definitely one of the bigger undertakings that the channel has gambled on to date. Unfortunately, ratings for the show declined towards the final episodes of season 1. This, combined with the big budget, was most likely the cause behind the decision to license to Netflix. The good thing is the show has a large cult following and I’m sure SyFy hopes to tap into it and expand on it when the show goes out to the rest of the world.

For now, I can tell you that Season 2 of The Expanse is highly anticipated here (in my house) and for fans across the country. Head to SyFy.com to catch up on episodes from Season 1 and subscribe to SKATRONIXXX to stay up to date on this and all your favorite geeking, gaming, and nerding news.

See you soon!
