Deadline reports that Amazon will renew The Expanse for a sixth and final season.
I’m sure this heartbreaking news to fans as the news was announced before the Season 5 premiere. The expensive series had been cancelled by SyFy after three seasons before it was picked-up by Prime Video for Season 4.
Cast member Cas Anvar will not be returning after sexual misconduct allegations.
The Expanse is set in the future where humanity has colonized the solar system and the people of Earth, Mars and the Asteroid Belt have long been in opposition with one another. When the crew of the Rocinante uncovers an ancient alien technology, a vast conspiracy begins to emerge — one that will bring the solar system to the brink of war.
It’s unknown if the show will find a new home or will end forever with Season 6.
Season 5 will debut on December 16th.
