New “Expanse” Reviews Nearly 2019’s Best

Expanse Scores Near 2019 Best Reviews

Resurrected in the wake of its cancellation by Syfy, the just premiered fourth season of Amazon Prime’s sci-fi epic saga “The Expanse” has been on the receiving end of some truly stellar reviews.

The new run has scored a 91/100 on Metacritic, giving the episodes the fourth best reviews of any TV series (new or returning) this year behind only the second season of “Fleabag” (96), the third season of “Better Things” (94), and the final season of “Bojack Horseman” (92).

The new season has come in ahead of such high profile titles as “Russian Doll” (88), “Succession” S2 (88), “When They See Us” (87), “Watchmen” (85), and “The Mandalorian” (69).

The same is the case over at Rotten Tomatoes where the show is on a perfect 100% rating and a jaw-dropping 9.33/10 average rating with critics, while audience scores are on par with 97% (4.8/5). Again it comes in ahead of the ratings of the likes of “Watchmen” (Critics: 97% & 8.49/10, Audiences: 48% & 2.8/5) & “The Mandalorian” (Critics: 93% & 7.78/10, Audiences: 94% & 4.6/5).

The series is already in production on a fifth season which will hopefully arrive late next year.
