Syfy’s latest space opera The Expanse did a whole lot of world-building in Season 1, and it sounds like it’ll get down to having a bit more fun when it returns in 2017.

We caught up with co-star Shohreh Aghdashloo, who plays Chrisjen Avasarala, at San Diego Comic-Con to talk about how her character and the world at large will change in Season 2. Aghdashloo said her character is much more “fascinating” this season, as she gets in on even more of the action. She also talked about how they had to spend so much time in Season 1 establishing these characters and this world, and now they can essentially play in that sandbox.

As for what that means? Well, she didn’t give away too much, but she did promise Season 2 starts “with a kick,” and only gets better from there.

The Expanse returns for its second season in 2017 on Syfy.
