We do know that The Expanse 6 is happening, but when is it? Unfortunately, there is no official premiere date set for season 6. The series was renewed for a sixth season before the fifth season even aired. The Expanse season 4 was aired in December 2019, followed by season 5, which aired in December 2020. Amazon also confirmed that the series would come to an end after season 6. Bad news for the fans who were hoping for a new season.
Created by Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby, The Expanse is an American sci-fi television series based on a book series of the same name by James S.A. Corey. The series follows the incidents across the Sol System colonized by Humans. The fifth season of the series unfolds the arising of political parties and new alliances, as Marco Inaros defines a new period in the history of the Belters.
The award-winning series first premiered on December 14, 2015, on Syfy. After airing for three seasons, the series was officially canceled by Syfy in May 2018, but Amazon Video later picked it up. The Expanse has received mixed reviews from both the audience and critics for its character development and political portrayal. Dedicated fans of the show have been patiently waiting for the sixth season. Here’s everything we know so far!
Possible Release Date For The Expanse Season 6
The show’s fifth season premiered on December 15, 2020, on Amazon Prime video, completed on February 3, 2021. It has a total of ten episodes, with each episode varying from 42-53 minutes.
On November 24, 2020, The Expanse’s sixth season was renewed by Amazon before the fifth season even premiered. The new season is supposedly scheduled to begin filming in the last week of January 2021, but it was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Since both seasons 4 and 5 were released only a year apart, December 2019 and 2020, the possible release date for season 6 will probably be mid-2022, or so we think.
Although Amazon confirmed that The Expanse season would be the last outing of the show, the stars and crew members of the series have hinted that even if the show ended on Amazon, it’s not entirely the of ‘The Expanse.’ After ‘Babylon’s Ashes,’ there are still two more books to go, which may be based on the sixth season. Besides, the ninth book is releasing this year. Therefore, it won’t be surprising if another streaming platform picks up the show. Likewise, it gives us hope and pure joy and to know that the writers of the novel series recognize the situation as a “pause” and not a cancellation meaning, we can stay hopeful to let the good news come to us.
