Space’s epic political sci-fi thriller The Expanse returns with a special two-hour premiere, February 1st.

Airing Wednesdays at 10pm, Season 2 of the one-hour series is based on the international best-selling book series of the same name, and follows a feud between Mars and Earth in an ultimate battle for power.

In Season 2 of The Expanse tensions between each division continue to grow, positioning the Rocinante ship’s crew in an ever more precarious situation. An infectious agent called the protomolecule threatens the safety of the entire solar system, while the larger conspiracy that led to its unleashing begins to be exposed.

The Expanse unfolds across a colonized galaxy 200 years in the future, when two strangers – hardened detective Joe Miller (Thomas Jane, Hung) and rogue captain James Holden (Steven Strait, Magic City) – become unwittingly swept up in a vast conspiracy. Filmed on location in Toronto, The Expanse also stars Shohreh Aghdashloo (House of Sand and Fog), Dominique Tipper (Vampire Academy). Frankie Adams (Shortland Street) also joins the principle cast.
