The new season of “The Expanse” is just around the corner, and Amazon announced that another season is also scheduled to premiere on the platform. During Amazon Studios’ TCA conference, the studio confirmed that “The Expanse: Season 4” is scheduled to begin on December 13th, and that the company renewed the show for a fifth season.
Season 4 is the first season that the show is launching as an Amazon Original. After Amazon saved the show, Prime Video started hosting all three of the previous seasons to allow new fans to catch up on the story. The platform released a trailer for the new season on social media, telling fans the show “begins a new chapter for the series with the crew of the Rocinante on a mission from the U.N. to explore new worlds beyond the Ring Gate.” Amazon added, “Humanity has been given access to thousands of Earth-like planets which has created a land rush and furthered tensions between the opposing nations of Earth, Mars and the Belt. Ilus is the first of these planets, one rich with natural resources but also marked by the ruins of a long dead alien civilization. While Earthers, Martians and Belters maneuver to colonize Ilus and its natural resources, these early explorers don’t understand this new world and are unaware of the larger dangers that await them.”
Prime members can watch seasons 1-3 right here on Amazon.
If you’re new to the series, the story begins when the disappearance of rich-girl-turned-political-activist Julie Mao links the lives of Ceres detective Joe Miller (Thomas Jane), accidental ship captain James Holden (Steven Strait) and U.N. politician Chrisjen Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo). The company described the story saying, “Amidst political tension between Earth, Mars and the Belt, they unravel the single greatest conspiracy of all time.”
