Amazon Prime Video has revealed the full trailer for the upcoming sixth and final season of The Expanse. The video highlights the Rocinante crew and the combined fleet of Earth and Mars continuing space war against Marco Inaros and his Free Navy. It also teases the arrival of a new threat beyond the Rings.
Starring Steven Strait, the sci-fi drama is scheduled to make its return on December 10, with new episodes available each Friday following, culminating in an epic series finale on January 14, 2022.
The Expanse is a high-action, realistic sci-fi adventure that unfolds across a colonized galaxy 200 years in the future. It broadens the vision of humanity’s path in the future as well as a deeply-felt examination of the most critical, raw, and pressing issues of today.
“The sixth and final season of The Expanse picks up with the solar system at war, as Marco Inaros and his Free Navy continue to launch devastating asteroid attacks on Earth and Mars,” reads the synopsis. “As the tensions of war and shared loss threaten to pull the crew of the Rocinante apart, Chrisjen Avasarala makes a bold move and sends former Martian Marine Bobbie Draper on a secret mission that could turn the tide of the conflict. Meanwhile, in the Belt, Drummer and what’s left of her family are on the run after betraying Marco. And on a distant planet beyond the Rings, a new power begins to rise.”
The series stars Steven Strait, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Dominique Tipper, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Cara Gee, Wes Chatham, Frankie Adams, Keon Alexander, Nadine Nicole, and Jasai Chase Owens.
