It was not officially announced but as expected, the popular sci-fi series ‘The Expanse’ has officially been renewed for season 6 and it turns out, it will also be the last season of the space battle. The Season 6 renewal comes three weeks before Season 5 debut on Prime Video on December 16.
However, there is also terrible news attached to it as Cas Anvar is not returning for the sixth season due to the controversy of sexual misconduct allegations on him. The rest of the cast is likely to return for the final season as long as they are required to be part of it. Showrunner Naren Shankar will also be back.

“From the moment we committed to bringing this show to live up until this final season, we have worked tirelessly to honor the vision of the writers. We have prided ourselves on having one of the most diverse casts on television and giving a platform to stories that matter,” said Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson, Co-CEOs and Co-Founders of Alcon Television Group, and executive producers of The Expanse. “A special thanks to Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck, the writers of both the books and series and to Naren Shankar, the series showrunner and Executive Producer. It continues to be an honor and privilege to work with this team. We also would like to thank Amazon for their continuing support to help us tell this story to its fullest and to bring The Expanse to a global audience.”
“The dedication and artistry of everyone who helps bring The Expanse to the screen are incredible,” said Shankar, who has served as executive producer/showrunners on all seasons. “Our fans are awesome, and we cannot wait to get rolling on Season Six!”
Season 5 will arrive on December 16, 2020. New episodes will drop each Wednesday (first 3 episodes on 16th) working up to the season finale, which will be the 10th episode on 3rd February 2021. Watch the trailer here.
The Expanse Season 4 ended with Marco Inaros and his son Filip on their way to attack Earth with stolen Martian gear. Marco has launched a missile strike on Earth that would penetrate the planet's defenses.
