Report: Amazon is "near" a deal to save The Expanse
Amazon, which already has streaming rights to the newly-canceled space drama's first three seasons, is near a deal to pick up The Expanse for a fourth season. That's according to The Hollywood Reporter's Lesley Goldberg, who emphasizes that a deal isn't yet done. She adds that, according to sources, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos "is a big fan of the book and was livid that the TV series went to NBCUniversal-owned Syfy. That loss move is said to have ignited Bezos' demand that Amazon Studios brass find TV's next Game of Thrones. Last Tuesday, heartbroken The Expanse fans flew a banner over Amazon Studios headquarters in Los Angeles with the hashtag "#SaveTheExpanse."

Syfy cancels The Expanse after three seasons
The Expanse was one of the first series greenlighted following Syfy's decision to return to its sweeping space opera roots. According to Deadline, producers plan to shop the series to another outlet. "The cancellation decision by Syfy is said to be linked to the nature of its agreement for the series, which only gives the cable network first-run linear rights in the U.S," according to Deadline's Nellie Andreeva. "That puts an extraordinary amount of emphasis on live, linear viewing, which is inherently challenging for sci-fi/genre series that tend to draw the lion’s share of their audiences from digital/streaming."
