Over the last four years, ‘The Expanse‘ has proved its mettle as true blue cinema and earned its place among the best sci-fi series right now. And finally, after receiving a massive response from the viewers, the makers have decided to renew the show for Season 5.
All About The Series
The Expanse’ is an American sci-fi series by Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby based on the novel of the same name by James S.A. Corey. After the cancellation and a surprise rebirth, thankfully, ‘The Expanse’ is in safe hands. Amazon Prime Video has rekindled the sci-fi show with the confirmation of Season 5.
The Expanse begins when detective Josephus Miller (Thomas Jane), born in the dwarf planet called Ceres in the asteroid belt, is sent to find a missing woman named Julie Mao (Florence Faivre). Joining him in the task is James Holden (Steven Strait), formerly a first officer of an ice freighter. He is involved in resolving a concussion caused by the tensed relationship striking between Earth, Mars, and Belt.
When an ice-hauling ship is destroyed, it kicks off a chain of events that bring the factions of aliens to the brink of war. The crew of a ship called the Rocinate is sent to investigate the burgeoning conflict—which they discover may actually be a carefully engineered attempt to cover up the discovery of a mysterious alien called ‘Protomolecule‘
No Release Date As Of Now
The makers have announced the renewal of Season 5. However, the release date of the upcoming season is not revealed yet. So, we can’t completely be sure when Season 5 might arrive. Now looking at the past year, the fourth season premiered on December 12, 2019, so it is more likely to release in December 2020.
The storyline of The Expanse season five will make some big changes in the show. The end of the fourth season left all the viewers with many questions that remain unanswered.
The upcoming season will focus on how the Earth and Mars are losing power which they previously held and the people’s departure towards the Ring Gates. The show is also expected to get more political. And a special focus on the lives of the main characters Naomi, Alex, and Amos will be made.
Based on the finale of Season 4, we are expecting- Holden, Naomi, Alex, and Amos will make a come back in the new season. We can also expect to see more of Camina Drummer (Cara Gee), Chrisjen Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo), and Bobbie Draper (Frankie Adams).
However, it’s not clear if the investigator Joe Miller (Thomas Jane) will return or not. The actor Thomas Jane has made no secret of his ongoing involvement with the show.
