The Expanse Season 7 has been brought back to television for the seventh time. When Prime Video premiered Lynn Raynor on January 14, the show's ratings were the highest Monday night launch since then.
Season 7 of The Expanse hasn't been announced by anyone in authority, so I'll start this piece by stating that. All official statements have said that Season 6 will be the final season, with no hint of a possible continuing series to wrap up the book series altogether.
Regardless, this show has a loyal following and a history of quickly pulling off strange occurrences. As unusual as it may seem right now, the fact that the cast and crew understood going into Season 6 that it would be their last and set out to finish the tale even though they knew it was their previous means it's probably best to search down funding sooner rather than later.
Expansion is an appropriate title for this show because it seemed to go on and on. Sci-Fi first canceled the science-fiction drama in 2018 after only three seasons because of James S. A. Corey's book series, which has since been revived.
When it comes to this program, it is similar to how humanity in The Expanse colonized a neighboring planet group. Wil Wheaton, Patton Oswalt, and George RR Martin were some of the more well-known names who advocated for the revival of The Expanse.
The seventh season of James S. A. Corey's Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby sci-fi series has been ordered by Prime Video. In addition, it was a win-win situation! Amazon Prime Video revived the show for three more seasons before canceling it after season six.
io9 spoke with Naren Shankar, the showrunner of The Expanse, who explained that financial factors mainly drove the decision to cut season six from ten to six episodes.
“Amazon and Alcon Television were neck-and-neck,” said one observer. The amount of money you'll spend on the show is up to you. As if it wasn't enough, it was made a deliberate choice.
It was a six-episode series. For the most part, you can consider it an exchange. Is it possible that we would have finished 10? Totally. Is it possible that we would have finished eight? Absolutely. There was no way to discern the season from the under six.”
Despite how heartbreaking this erasure may be, fans can take comfort in that the culmination of book six, which is also where season six concludes, has a trademark completion.
For the seventh season of Persepolis to be viable, it would have to use CGI and cosmetics to age each character – or perhaps comprehensively recast them like The Crown.
After Six Seasons, Why Did the Show Get Dismissed?
Shortly after the show was renewed for three more seasons, fans heard that it was going to be canceled, which caused a lot of uncertainty. Amazon Prime Video has also said that the show will end with the sixth season, so fans will have to accept that as the show's end.
Many audience members said this show didn't end as it should and left important things hanging. On the other hand, most people who watched the show aren't sure why it was canceled. Even though the show was well-known and had good ratings, they decided to end it.
Naren Shankar, who was in charge of the show, told me that the main reason the show was canceled was the economy. The original science fiction series takes a lot of time and space.
The series has to keep up with everything to look real because it takes a lot of work to meet the graphics and animation needs. The show didn't make enough money to cover its high costs, so it was canceled after season 6.
The head of the show speaks, “After season six, we have what we think is a very natural break in the story,” Franck said at a press event. “It will feel like a satisfying end to the story we've been building over the first five seasons. I think that the idea of being canceled is an old-fashioned one.”
He said, “This is a conversation we've been having since the first time we were canceled,” which Abraham added. “We've been talking about how the show could go, and this six-season story arc has always been one of the options. This is not something we have to rush to get.”
Does This Sci-Fi Show Have a Future?
SyFy and Amazon Prime Video have essentially shown The Expanse as unviable as a financial property. Season 7 of The Expanse is now in its momentum design, making it difficult to anticipate the show's future.
In light of this, it's highly doubtful that we'll see more television show episodes.
According to the series, this may or may not be the case. We know that the show became a lot more popular than we thought on Amazon Prime Video and that the positive review assessment convinced Amazon, or other media companies, to greenlight the second season.
Since it hasn't happened so far, despite Amazon's enormous particular push and the fanbase's shouting about the show to everyone who might tune in for the last six seasons, I doubt it will. Who is to say for sure, in any case?
