The Expanse Season 6 Trailer Reveals First Look At Final Episodes – Screen Rant

The teaser for the sixth and final season of Amazon’s The Expanse shows the “broken” crew of the Rocinante fighting to recoup their losses.
The trailer for Amazon’s The Expanse season 6, which will be the series’ last, teases huge battles ahead for the crew of the Rocinante. The series is adapted from the science fiction novels by James S.A. Corey and has so far adapted one per season. Although there are more than 6 novels in the series, it is possible that Amazon may explore the later novels in an Expanse spinoff, considering that book 7 picks up after a large time jump.
The first three seasons of The Expanse ran on the SyFy network. When SyFy canceled The Expanse in 2018 despite continuing critical and audience appreciation, Amazon Studios resurrected the show. The upcoming final season will be slightly shorter, running at only six episodes as opposed to previous seasons, which ranged from 10 to 13 episodes apiece. Given the effects-driven show’s tendency toward short seasons, Amazon has still extended the lifespan of the show considerably despite this truncated final run.

At their panel for New York Comic Con’s Metaverse, Amazon Prime debuted the trailer for the final season of The Expanse, in addition to revealing the impending December release date. In the trailer, the “broken” Rocinante crew faces a huge challenge as tensions erupt with the Outer Planets’ Marco Inaros. They must recoup their losses and face what’s to come, which from the looks of the trailer may be extremely challenging. Check out the video below:
Season 6 of The Expanse will follow the war in the solar system as Earth and Mars are continuously blasted by asteroid attacks. Chrisjen Avasarala will send Bobbie Draper on a top-secret mission that may reverse their grim fate, while Drummer and what remains of her family are on the run from Marco after betraying him. Among the rest of this chaos, a new power begins to emerge on a planet beyond the Rings. The new season will feature returning cast members Steven Strait, Dominique Tipper, Wes Chatham, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Cara Gee, Frankie Adams, Keon Alexander, Nadine Nicole, and Jasai Chase Owens.
This new trailer for The Expanse season 6 shows that the creators of the show intend to keep the series consistent in its political, yet action-oriented approach all the way through to the end. As the overarching plot of the series culminates, the results are certain to be devastating for some beloved characters. If there’s a happy ending in sight for the Rocinante and its crew, they’ll have to fight for it.
