  1. Great news, I imaged the Expanse series was ideal for a TV series, right up there with Battlestar Glactica and Babylon 5. Any idea about which network might carry the series?

  2. So great this news.Perfect material for a series.

    I think they’ll stay tight lipped until things get moving along,this is at least a year away and probably two.

    My thing now is,will this show have our crew members as part of it?Holden,Naomi,Amos,Alex?AND who will play them if it does?

    This has Star Trek like potential if it’s done right.

  3. Love this news. I’ve said for a while now that the books would be fantastic for television.

  4. This would get me to sign up for cable TV again.

  5. Make it a Netflix series and we’re all set.

  6. Wow, I didn’t even know a fourth book was coming, either–awesome!

  7. Sweet. Now I’ve got to read the third book. And there’s a fourth book?!

  8. I’ve had the first two books in the TBR pile for awhile. This news makes me think I should move them closer to the top of the pile.
