The Expanse,  season 3 began production in May. Fans have been waiting in breathless anticipation hoping for any news.  Well, we’ve got some, courtesy of TV Line.  Defiance alum, Anna Hopkins will be playing a recurring role in the show’s third season.  

Hopkins, who’s other sci-fi/fantasy credits include Dark Matter and Arrow, will be introduced mid-season.  She’ll be playing the role of “Monica, a charming and savvy journalist who has a way of convincing her subjects to let their guard down. She will debut midway through Season 3 when she is assigned to document Holden’s (Steven Strait) administration of the Rocinante.”

The Expanse is based on the James S. A. Corey’s best-selling book series by the same name.   Season three will be largely based on the remaining half of Caliban’s War (book 2) and Abbadon’s Gate (book 3).  It will be a 13 episode season and premiere sometime in 2018.  

The official trailer for season 3 was released at SDCC this year.  Check it out.  It.  Looks.  Good.  Flip and Burn!
