Enter The Expanse
Not a lot of television shows can brag about having what the Expanse is about to get. It’s on its way to a fifth season and is rated 8.5/10 on IMDb that tells me it’s doing good. The show has received praise and awards, for its visuals, character development, and political viewpoint. The Expanse is currently an Amazon bound science fiction thriller series after Syfy canceled the show after season 3. The series is set in a sort of futuristic dystopia two hundred years later. The show brings contrasting characters together with a goal to solve the case of a missing woman as they uncover secrets.
Story so far
In its first season, we see Joe Miller try to solve the case of the missing woman, Julie Mao. Meanwhile, a UN executive tries to prevent war between Mars and Earth. The most important part of its first season is the discovery of the biohazard that kills humans on Eros.
In season 2 the UN executive, Chrisjen Avasarala takes a disciple, Bobbie Draper. Efforts to uncover what happened on Eros through investigations were completely sabotaged. In Season 3 Chrisjen isn’t able to stop the UN from declaring war on Mars. And in the latest season, the investigation of the situation on the single alien planet that has taken in refugees begins. The overall desire to make Mars habitable reduces are other habitable worlds become available
The good news is that fans don’t have to wait too long to glimpse into season 5. As usual, it would be laced with only 10 episodes, and starting on December season we will see episodes released.
Courtesy of Amazon, here’s the official synopsis for season 5:
Season 5 of the series picks up as multitudes of humans leave the solar system in search of new homes and vast fortunes on the earth-like worlds beyond the alien Ring, and a heavy price for centuries of exploitation of the Belt finally comes due and a reckoning is at hand. For the crew of the Rocinante and the leaders of the Inner Planets and the Belt, the past and present converge, bringing forth personal challenges that have wide-reaching repercussions throughout the Solar System.
Even more good news is that the upcoming season will retain most of our favourite characters like Shohre and Avasarala. Unfortunately due to the death of his character in season 4 Klaes Ashford(David Strathairn) is officially off the show. We say farewell to him, he had a great exit.
The season promises to be tantalising and would be absolutely worth the small wait.
