Amazon Studios has ordered a sixth and final season of the Amazon Original series The Expanse, based on James S.A. Corey’s best-selling books. Renewal of The Expanse for a final season comes before the premiere of the anticipated fifth season, which is scheduled for December 16. The series is set in the future when humans have colonised the solar system and the people of Earth, Mars and the asteroid belt are in confrontation 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. The Expanse is a high-action, sci-fi adventure that explores the depth of humanity against the far-spanning reaches of the known universe.
