Based on the best-selling space opera book series, The Expanse is set in the future where humanity has colonized Mars, the Asteroid Belt and the outer planets. Season One follows Joe Miller (Thomas Jane), a Belter police detective assigned to find a missing young woman named Julie Mao (Florence Faivre), James Holden (Steven Strait), an Earth-born XO on the ice hauler Canterbury, and Chrisjen Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo), a United Nations executive working to prevent war between Earth and Mars by any means necessary. As political tensions between the factions of humanity rise, Miller, Holden and Avasarala realize Miller's case and the fate of the Canterbury are both part of a vast conspiracy that threatens humanity. Praised for its blend of hard science fiction and detective noir, The Expanse has garnered legions of devoted fans and has been acclaimed for its incredible sense of scale, high production values, believable characters and gorgeous visuals.
