The Expanse is an American science fiction television series developed by Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby, based on the series of novels of the same name by James S.A. Corey.
The series is set in a future where humanity has colonised the Solar System. It follows a disparate band of antiheroes – United Nations Security Council member Chrisjen Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo), police detective Josephus Miller (Thomas Jane), ship’s officer James Holden (Steven Strait) and his crew – as they unwittingly unravel and place themselves at the centre of a conspiracy which threatens the system’s fragile state of Cold War.
The desire for a land rush begins after portals to other solar systems with habitable worlds opened up. Refugee ships from the belt and overcrowded Earth are stopped at the gateway. Efforts to terraform Mars begin to wane as ready made habitable worlds are now available. The crew of the Rocinante are sent to investigate the situation on the single alien planet that has been settled by Belter refugees, who have been joined by an officially backed scientific expedition with private military support.
