SYFY has posted a new teaser trailer for the third season of The Expanse. The Twitter video above should be viewable worldwide, whereas the trailer posted to the official SYFY YouTube channel below seems to be region-locked. (Why some companies do that with trailers, which are functionally just advertisements, I will never know.) Hopefully, between the two options, you’ll all be able to see one of them.
Based on the ongoing series by James S. A. Corey (a pseudonym for the writing team of Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck), The Expanse is set 200 years in the future on Mars, Earth, and the Belt (a series of asteroids and outer planets, which primarily provide raw materials to the other two). When Mars discovers an alien protomolecule that messes with reality and “infects” those who come into contact with it, the social and political fallout stretches across the galaxy.
The summary for Season Three doesn’t give much away, though the series has hewed relatively close to the books thus far, so readers of the original books likely have some sense of what’s coming. “The 13-episode third season picks up with Earth, Mars and The Belt at war,” reads the summary, “with each competing entity vying for control. Now, more than ever, the mission to unlock the secret of the protomolecule reaches an all-time high and every decision made could jeopardize the survival of the solar system.”
This teaser trailer also keeps things close to the chest, but it looks like the solar system will be as dangerous as ever. SYFY’s promotional tweets promises that “no planet, asteroid, or ship is safe,” and in his trailer voiceover, Steven Strait’s Holden says, “In war, we not only have to face our enemies, but we must fight the battle within ourselves. It’s time to find out who we really are.”
Starring Frankie Adams, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Cas Anvar, Wes Chatham, Paulo Costanzo, Shawn Doyle, Florence Faivre, Thomas Jane, Steven Strait, and Dominique Tipper, The Expanse will return to SYFY on April 11.
