Amazon Studios picks up fan favorite sci-fi series The Expanse for sixth and final season; Game of Thrones in Space all the way to the end!


Recommended Posts

It appears that they are going to try to condense 3 books into 1 season. Can they do it without destroying the pacing and rhythm of the show? I can't answer that since I haven't read the books, but some fans aren't happy right now.

Cas Anvar, who’s played Alex since the first season, will not be joining them for the final season—following a string of sexual misconduct allegations earlier this year. As of now, it’s unclear how much Anvar will be present in season five or how the series will address his departure in the final chapter.

This sucks but it's necessary. I wonder if this played a part in Amazon's decision.

The season renewal comes ahead of the series’ 5th season, which will debut December 16 on Amazon Prime Video

Are they compressing things because they had to fire Anvar, or did you just happen to throw both pieces of information ITT?

I happened to throw both pieces of information ITT. I wonder if it played a role, but I doubt it. 

 

I'm just disappointed that such a great show may end up being rushed and ruined at the end. :(

My friend who's read the books says they advance the timeline 30 years between books 6 and 7, and that he could see them maybe just ending the show roughly at the end of book 6.

That sounds better than throwing 3 books into 1 season.

On the other hand, if they don’t do that with Wheel of Time, the heat death of the universe will happen before the show ends. So... YMMV :p
