Critic Reviews for The Expanse: Season 3

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3)

The Expanse isn't perfect television, but entering Season 3 it is undeniably confident about the story it's telling, and more importantly the kind of stories it wants to tell.

It felt good to slip back into the space opera. The new season does an excellent job of continuing the character development that was expertly executed last season.

Not one frame on The Expanse passes without asking you to take note of what it's doing, and what, in the long run, it means.

The shift in motivation and purpose for all of the characters sets up the new chapter beautifully, leaving everyone anticipating a great third season for this most epic of space dramas.

April 12, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Because The Expanse, really, is a show that you have to directly experience. It's one part TV drama, one part an actual place to embed in and explore. It's smart and dense, but just as accessible and exciting.

It can be grim and unsettling, but it presents a universe in which it is still possible to be a hero. You just have to be willing to face what happens next.
