Syfy got one more thing in the books before 2016, renewing its new series The Expanse for a second season on the last day of the year. There's no word on how many episodes the second season will consist of or when it will air, but using the power of deductive reasoning, we can confidently guess it will be 13 episodes (just like the current first season) and air in late 2016.
The Expanse is an ambitious sci-fi series set two centuries in the future when humans have colonized parts of the solar system. Thomas Jane stars as a detective investigating the disappearance of a young woman, but his search leads him to uncovering a vast conspiracy that likely goes all the way to the top, or very close to it.
The series, which is one of Syfy's best-looking shows to date and harkens back to the hardcore science fiction Syfy used to be known for, has been met with mostly favorable (and somewhat confused) reviews. Here on TV.com, the users have given it a sturdy 8.8 rating.
The Expanse is currently in its first season, and Episode 5 will air Tuesday at 10pm on Syfy.
