The Expanse Season 5 Gets Release Date and Trailer

And this trailer looks GOOD

Sadie Gennis

The ExpanseSeason 5 trailer is here, and it was more than worth the wait. And fortunately, the Screaming Firehawks won't have to wait too much longer to see even more of the sci-fi epic. During Thursday's virtual New York Comic Con panel, it was also revealed that The Expanse Season 5 will debut on Wednesday, Dec. 16 on Amazon Prime Video.

When The Expanse returns, Earth, Mars, and the Belt will all be dealing with the fallout of Marco's (Keon Alexander) attack on Earth in the Season 4 finale. As the Season 5 trailer shows, Marco and his Free Navy are launching a massive war to not only gain Belter sovereignty but power over the inners. And when Fred Johnson (Chad L. Coleman) tells Naomi (Dominique Tipper) that her son Filip (Jasai Chase Owens) is with Marcos, Naomi sets off on a quest to free Filip from his father's destructive influence.

Naomi isn't the only one going on a harrowing personal journey this season either. Amos (Wes Chatham) will return to Baltimore in a storyline that promises to reveal much we didn't know about this beloved character and the people that populated his past.
