The Expanse, a new 10 episode space drama from Syfy, is headed our way in December 2015.

The stylish and ambitious new space drama (take a look at the recently released first look trailer below if you don’t believe us) is based on the  best-selling book series of the same name by James S. A. Corey.

Set two hundred years in the future, after mankind has colonized the solar system, we are introduced to a hardened detective (Thomas Jane, The Punisher) and a rogue ship’s captain (Steven Strait, Magic City) who come together for what starts as the case of a missing young woman and evolves into a race across the solar system to expose the greatest conspiracy in human history.

All that and Shohreh Aghdashloo (House of Sand and Fog) as Chrisjen Avasaralaas too.

Other series regulars include Dominique Tipper (Vampire Academy), Cas Anvar (Olympus), Wes Chatham (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay) and Florence Faivre (The Following).

We’ve got a collection of just-released images from the first episode to share, along with that trailer, in our gallery below.
