First trailer lands for new space-opera TV show The Expanse: watch now

SyFy has debuted the first trailer from The Expanse, a new sci-fi TV thriller starring Thomas Jane as a detective operating 200 years in the future.

Jane stars as Detective Miller, an employee of a corporate security force that acts as law-enforcement in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.

Miller's latest case involves the disappearance of a young heiress and develops into a “race across the solar system to expose the greatest conspiracy in human history.” No pressure then...

Take a look at the new trailer, below…



Looks like exciting stuff, with Jane bringing some good, old-fashioned gumshoe grit to the space-based setting. Nice fedora he's rocking there, too…

Co-starring Shohreh Aghdashloo, Steven Strait and Dominique Tipper, the new series has yet to receive an official release date, but is scheduled to arrive at some point later in the year.
