Hundreds of years in the future, humanity’s arm stretches far into space. The frontier is the home of conflict for the three super powers in the solar system, and it seems like a powder-keg is about to explode. The Expanse is the latest thrilling sci-fi you’re not watching yet.
The United Nations of Earth, The Martian Congressional Republic of Mars, and the Outer Planets Alliance are in almost constant conflict. As tensions rise, a detective and a ship’s captain race against time as they come together to track down a missing woman. Little do these heroes know that their investigation may expose the greatest conspiracy in human history.
Here’s everything you need to know to stream The Expanse.

The Expanse Reviews
What the critics are saying:
- “Complicated as this set-up might read, the sheer gorgeousness of “The Expense” goes quite a distance toward shoring up a person’s commitment to it, as do the performances. … A heavily serialized show like this one will never be easily accessible to newcomers who drop into mid-voyage. Ergo, to say that this previous description provides all you need to know to get up to speed is not quite accurate. But it does help that these new episodes reconfigure the grid a bit and simplify the plot.” -Melanie McFarland, Salon
