What to expect when The Expanse returns

If you’re caught up on all the available episodes of the Syfy show, you know that though Earth, Mars and the Asteroid Belt are almost constantly on the brink of war, the main characters are facing down a threat that could take out everything. The future of the entire solar system is at stake, and there isn’t much time.
