    No kidding. There are shows that are made to be binged then there are shows like The Expanse that really benefit from a week to week release. Even if they went to 2 episodes a week like HBO MAX did with Raised by Wolves that'd be a hell of a lot better than a full drop in 1 day.

  • I hoped they learned that lesson from the boys which I think was very successful with a weekly shedule.

    They seemed to get a ton of flack for it, which is irritating. I know everyone has their preferences of how to view this stuff. But, I definitely prefer the week-to-week.

  • Makes sense since the upcoming story arc takes two  books to cover. :-)
  • I'd feel very good about the chances of Amazon making 9 seasons of this if they renew for season 7. It would be a shame if the show never gets to do the books 7-9 arc.

    Did anything ever come out of that Cas Anvar situation?

    I'd love to see what internal metrics they used to decide on this release schedule. Clearly, they loved what they saw from The Boys S2, even including the fanboy/girl revolt/review bombing. I do wish they'd just start in mid-January. We have screeners, I'm not even bitching about having to work through Christmas, I just think there's not a lot of eyeballs around that time of year. Maybe it'll pay off since there's not much else going on other than Hallmark and Netflix shitting out christmas rom-coms as fast as you can watch em.

  • That trailer is pure fire!! I can’t friggin’ wait!!! Also, a big fan of the slow rollout. In theory, that should help build the ‘water cooler talk’ that this show has been missing.

    Well he's clearly in this season since it wrapped before any of the accusations came out. But it definitely looks like the tried to minimize him in the trailer, one brief shot and no lines.
  • I am beyond excited that they are making the decision of releasing an episode a week after the 1st drop of 3 episodes. Like A. Ron mentioned it's a little bummer they are releasing it just before Christmas but I'll deal with that given their release schedule.

    Yeah. Maybe they kill him off?

    And it looks like also the merch game is starting to kick off a little bit: https://www.herocollector.com/en-gb/Article/new-launch-the-expanse-ships-collection

  • For bookreaders that trailer was a real treat. I could feel my brain clicking like oh, that's that scene, here's a diversion, that character won't be part of the series. Great stuff.
  • I think the December time is a good date personally. I usually have more time to watch TV around then, not less. Maybe I'm in the minority.

    I could watch the new trailer 100 times and never get sick of it. The Expanse truly is high quality TV and I hope it gets the recognition it deserves. I don't think it's a big Emmy winning kind of show but the quality in the technical side should really get more accolades than it does.

    I'm not a book reader but I feel like this season feels a lot more GOT in the idea of the main cast going their own directions to take care of their own business. Not saying other seasons haven't had multiple stories going on concurrently but this season seems even more so heading that direction.
