The Expanse: Season 6 Release Date and First Trailer Revealed – NYCC 2021
Amazon Prime Video has revealed the release date and first trailer for Season 6 of The Expanse, which will make its debut on Friday, December 10, 2021.
Here’s how Amazon describes the upcoming Season 6 of The Expanse: “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. 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.”
You can watch the new trailer for Season 6 of The Expanse in the video below or at the top of the page:
The streamer unveiled the new trailer during The Expanse New York Comic Con panel. Series regulars Steven Strait, Dominique Tipper, Wes Chatham, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Cara Gee, Frankie Adams, Keon Alexander, Nadine Nicole, and Jasai Chase Owens return for what should be an epic final season on Amazon.
The upcoming season will likely follow the events of Book 6 of The Expanse saga from author James S.A. Corey (aka Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck), titled “Babylon’s Ashes.” At the time of writing, there are currently eight published novels, with the ninth and final book — “Leviathan Falls” — set to release on November 16, 2021.
With three more books in the series to adapt, there’s still more story to tell, but Alcon’s deal with Amazon is over after this sixth and final season. According to executive producer and showrunner Naren Shankar in an interview with EW, more seasons of The Expanse could be on the way.
“You know, honestly, that would be more of a question for our studio, for Alcon, Shankar told EW. “They control the property, but what I will say is that there’s definitely more to tell and I’m sure Ty and Daniel would say exactly the same thing. But yeah, that’s probably about as much as I can say at this point.”
