News & Interviews for The Expanse: Season 2
The show's epic scope... remains intact, as well as its always impressive production values and effects. But there's more focus to the first four episodes of the season than expected, thanks to more of the characters uniting in proximity to similar goals.
A great 13-episode ride, or more accurately, a great end to a 15-episode ride, and then a great 8-episode ride that teases the next season well...
The show maintained a high level of tension while letting characters develop quietly and intimately over two hours. The science fiction elements, as well as the special effects, were strong.
If well-researched science fiction is your bag, season two of The Expanse is sure to thrill, confound, and delight in equal measure. Just make sure you're paying attention.
Audience Reviews for The Expanse: Season 2
The writing and acting pitfalls from Season 1 unfortunately continued into this season. On the other hand, the characters got a bit more complex and the story became a bit more exciting. They better up their game in Season 3!!
Exciting and action packed, Season 2 of The Expanse takes things to the next level as the fate of the universe lies in the balance. After discovering that the Proto-molecule that infected Eros station is continuing to grow and expand Joe Miller works with Fred Johnson to put together a mission to destroy it; meanwhile Earth and Mars prepare for an impending war, which comes to a head when there's an attack on Ganymede. The writing is a lot better this season, as it's easier to follow and has stronger story arcs. And the acting is better too; particularly Thomas Jane, who really brings his A-game. The special effects are also especially good, making for some impressive space sequences. It still has some problems, but The Expanse's second season is remarkably compelling and full of thrills.
