On September 6, we revealed that ‘The Expanse’ Season 6 will only have six episodes.
The announcement was made by the cast and executive producers during the series panel at New York Comic Con’s Metaverse.
The Expanse's sixth and final season begins with the solar system at war, with Marco Inaros and his Free Navy continuing to conduct catastrophic asteroid attacks on Earth and Mars. As the crew of the Rocinante is being torn apart by the pressures of war and shared loss, Chrisjen Avasarala makes a bold move and sends former Martian Marine Bobbie Draper on a covert mission that could reverse the course of the conflict. Meanwhile, Drummer and the remnants of her family are on the run in the Belt after betraying Marco. And a new power begins to rise on a faraway planet beyond the Rings.
Season 6 cast lead by Steven Strait will return with Wes Chatham, Frankie Adams, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Cara Gee, Dominique Tipper, Keon Alexander, and Jasai Chase Owens. Naren Shankar is the showrunner. The cast will also see some new faces in smaller roles, which include - Redd Ochoa, Matt Birman, Jas Dhanda, Ava Cheung, Gabriel Darku, and David Klein.
The Expanse is set in a colonized solar system and begins with the governments of Earth, Mars, and the Asteroid Belt at odds. The crew of the Rocinante—an illegally salvaged warship—discovers a huge conspiracy and a strange alien technology that threatens to upend the balance of power and humanity's fate. The Expanse is a high-action, realistic sci-fi adventure that broadens humanity's future course as well as a profoundly felt analysis of today's most important, raw, and pressing issues.
The Hugo Award-winning series is based on James S.A. Corey's enormously popular science fiction novels, and it was devised and scripted by Academy Award-nominated writing duo Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby. Naren Shankar, Andrew Kosove, Broderick Johnson, Laura Lancaster, Sharon Hall, Sean Daniel, Jason Brown, Daniel Abraham, Ty Franck, Dan Nowak, and Ben Roberts serve as executive producers. Shankar is the showrunner for the entire season. Alcon Television Group produces The Expanse.
