Are you ready for the all-out war between Earth, Mars, and The Belt when The Expanse returns for a third season next week? Well, ready or not, the SYFY series will be back with 13 new exciting episodes that will follow the events in Caliban’s War, the second installment in James S.A. Corey's book series. If you thought things got pretty intense in the second season, wait till you see this sneak peek from the Season 3 premiere.

The third season picks up where we left off with the reveal of Naomi’s betrayal (she didn’t destroy their sample of the protomolecule, instead handing it over to Fred Johnson) and Bobbie, Avasarala and Coytar fighting their way through Jules-Pierre Mao's ship.

While the crew of the Rocinante will have to deal with their own drama while stuck in the middle of a war between Earth and Mars, Avasarala and Bobbie come up with an escape plan… which includes a spacewalk for our statuesque Martian.

The sneak peek sees Bobbie blasting a hole in the side of the ship and taking a stroll outside. It’s a nail-biting scene as Bobbie loses her grip, hurtling across the ship’s hull before she manages to grab on, then running across the hull to her planned destination. There’s a very brief moment of levity when Avasarala grabs Coytar by the throat and declares that “this plan sucks,” before adding that Bobbie’s not even a pilot.

Ahead of The Expanse’s third season, SYFY WIRE’s The Churn podcast visited the set of the Hugo Award-winning space opera series, so we invite you to have a listen to Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3. If that wasn’t enough to whet your appetite, take a deep dive into our gallery of Season 3 pics.

The Expanse returns for Season 3 with “Fight or Flight” on April 11 at 9 p.m. on SYFY.
