The fantastic Amazon Sci-fi Thriller is back with a new season!
Season four is now available on Amazon Prime Videos and it’s doing great. The Expanse season 4, leaves the Rocinante crew in dramatic circumstances.
The Expanse season 4 is set in the 24th century and picks up following the opening of the Protomolecule Ring Gates in the season 3 finale.
As shown in the previous season, this allows the inhabitants of the Sol system to travel to brand-new worlds.
Simultaneously, this opportunity helps to unite various factions of The Expanse, while also giving them something new to compete for and argue over, leading to violent clashes between sides.
As they continue to investigate the Protomolecule, Holden and the Rocinante crew find themselves right in the middle of the chaos.
Expanse Season 5: Release Date
According to the official Twitter account handle of Expanse, Season 5 production officially began on October 22.
The cast gathered about a week before to read the scripts and Storyline of the episodes.
At New York Comic Con this fall, when asked about the fifth season of the show to the cast and the showrunner Tipper noted that they filmed Season 4, “about a year ago now.” So, it’s likely expected that Season 5 will drop around the same time next year which is mid-December 2023.
The outstanding use of visual-effects in a heavy show like The Expanse needs quite a lot of time in post-production to make all those nifty visuals shine.
Expanse Season 5: Cast and Crew
The main cast of The Expanse is made up of Steven Strait who plays the character of current Rocinante captain Jim Holden.
Along with him is the pilot of the ship Alex Kamal whose role will be played by Cas Anvar. Dominique Tripper and Wes Chatham, and Punisher star Thomas Jane as Detective Joe Miller (and will also be directing an episode) are also likely to return for the season 5th, and then season five will likely bring the next installment Nemesis Games to life, respectively.
Expanse Season 5: Plot, and what to expect?
As we all know, The Expanse Season 4 was highly based on the 2014 novel Cibola Burn. So, we concur that the fifth season is most likely to be based in the following year’s sequel, Nemesis Games.
Written by one of the most competent writers, James S. A. Corey’s, Nemesis Games is a tale depicting the increased disruption around the Solar System, with the power once held by Earth and Mars finally breaking down as more people depart for the Ring Gates.
It is highly expected that The Expanse season 5 will likely explore its central cast’s personal lives.
Naomi is haunted by her past, Alex visits his wife on Mars and Amos head back to Earth.
Meanwhile, Holden desperately tries to prevent Earth, Mars and the Belt from descending into chaos.
The daunting rebellious factions begin to gain prominence, launching attacks on all 3 of the major establishments.
The Free Navy becomes a force to be reckoned with, which is led by Marco Inaros, threatening the already fragile peace forged at the end of The Expanse season 3.
