Amazon Studios is to end sci-fi drama The Expanse with a sixth and final season.

Co-Head of Television at Amazon Studios Vernon Sanders said about the final season renewal, "We'd like to thank Naren, Andrew [Kosove], Broderick [Johnson], everyone at Alcon [Television Group] and the entire cast and crew of The Expanse for the hard work and love they have put into the series over these past seasons". "We have prided ourselves on having one of the most diverse casts on television and giving a platform to stories that matter", executive producers Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson said in a statement". Everyone else, including The Expanse showrunner Naren Shankar, is on board for the final season. It continues to be an honour and privilege to work with this team.

The Expanse season 5 will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on December 16th.

"The dedication and artistry of everyone who helps bring'The Expanse'to the screen is incredible".

Season 5, which premieres on Amazon December 16, "picks up as multitudes of humans leave the solar system in search of new homes and vast fortunes on the earth-like worlds beyond the alien Ring, and a heavy price for centuries of exploitation of the Belt finally comes due and a reckoning is at hand". "Our fans are awesome, and we can not wait to get rolling on Season Six!" "We know they'll love how Seasons Five and Six unfold".

While speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Naren Shankar teased that the upcoming fifth season "really is about the sins of the past", adding, "To one extent or another, that's every single story line, whether it is Naomi [Dominique Tipper] personally confronting the fact that she had a son with this very charismatic, and now quite violent, revolutionary-type leader".

There's "tentative" plans to begin a shooting run in late January, 2021, Deadline has reported, but the penciled-in dates, and an expected late 2021 release date, are all "subject to change amid fluid global conditions".

The Expanse will now come to a second, more final ending with its sixth season.

The Expanse series was picked up by Amazon Prime Video in 2018 for a fourth season, which released globally as an Amazon Original Series in December 2019. However, as announced, this will be the last season of production. But The Expanse season 6 won't feature cast member Cas Anvar - he plays the Martian pilot Alex Kamal - after an investigation into several sexual misconduct allegations levelled against him earlier this year.

The Expanse stars Steven Strait, Dominique Tipper and Wes Chatham. Up until now, The Expanse TV series has roughly adapted one book per season. It will be the ninth book in the series.
