The Expanse: Amazon Prime release trailer for fifth season

The Expanse is set hundreds of years in the future where humans have managed to colonise the solar system. However, with the human race separated, this leads to tensions between the planets and a struggle for overall power. The gripping series is airing its fifth season on Amazon Prime but is there going to be anymore new episodes?

WARNING: This article contains spoilers from The Expanse.

The Expanse originally started airing on SyFy where the first three seasons played out.

However, in 2018, the network decided to cancel The Expanse, leaving fans in shock as the story seemed to be far from over.

This is when Amazon Prime stepped in and saved the day by taking over the series.

Seasons four and five have both been shown on the streaming service with the end in sight for the latest series.

Will there be a season 6 of The Expanse?

Season five of The Expanse started on Wednesday, December 16, 2020, on Amazon Prime.

But three weeks prior to this, it had already been announced this wouldn’t be the end.

To the delight of fans, The Expanse will be back for season six so there are still more episodes to come.

The good news was tinged with sadness though as at the same time, it was revealed series six would be the end of The Expanse.

The Expanse will be cancelled following just one more season on Amazon Prime.

In a joint statement, executive producers Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson said: “From the moment we committed to bringing this show to life up until this final season, we have worked tirelessly to honour the vision of the writers.

“We have prided ourselves on having one of the most diverse casts on television and giving a platform to stories that matter.

“A special thanks to Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck, the writers of both the books and series, and to Naren Shankar, the series showrunner and executive producer.

“It continues to be an honour and privilege to work with this team.

“We also would like to thank Amazon for their continuing support to help us tell this story in its fullest and to bring The Expanse to a global audience.”

At the time of writing this article, a release date for series six hasn’t been announced.

According to Deadline, filming for the next season was supposed to begin on Wednesday, January 20, 2020.

When The Expanse moved to Amazon Prime, both seasons four and five had a December release date.

So this is most likely to be the case again if the cast and crew are able to stick to the filming schedule without interruptions.

Series five of The Expanse isn’t over yet though as there is one more episode left to go.

The grand finale is called Nemesis Games and it is expected to be a tense one.

The synopsis for the episode reads: “Holden and the Roci face off against Marco’s forces and Drummer, while Alex and Bobbie attempt a dangerous rescue of Naomi, and the balance of power in the Solar System shifts.”

The Expanse is available to watch on Amazon Prime.
