The Expanse Season 4: Check Out These 27 Images From The New Season
The Expanse Season 4 arrives December 13.
The Expanse Season 4's release date is finally upon us. It's been a long wait, but with Amazon ushering in a new era for the show, we're hoping there are good things in The Expanse's future. Are you excited to finally see what will happen next as humanity and the crew of the Rocinante explore new worlds in Season 4? Let us know in the comments below.
The Expanse is about to return for Season 4, and for the first time, it will debut on Amazon--the series' new home after last year's cancellation by Syfy. Unsurprisingly, being on Amazon has changed the show, though it sounds like it's for the better.
In our Expanse Season 4 review, we said, "With the greater visibility that being on Amazon brings, this show might live or die based on its upcoming fourth season, the first to debut on its new home. Luckily, The Expanse Season 4 continues the series' upward trajectory toward the highest orbit of sci-fi television."
Season 4 sees the Rocinante's crew on a mission to a new world. Holden (Steven Strait), Naomi (Dominique Tipper), Amos (Wes Chatham), and Alex (Cas Anvar) are taking commands from UN Secretary-General Chrisjen Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo), who sends them into the thorny situation developing on one of the unknown planets accessible through the "ring gates" that opened at the end of Season 3. The planet--called Ilus or New Terra, depending who you ask--was settled first by Belter refugees, but a team of researchers from an Earth-based corporation, led by security chief Adolphus Murtry (Burn Gorman), also assert a claim.
Meanwhile, on Mars, the now-disgraced Bobbie contends with civilian life in a dead-end job that eventually leads her down a dark path. Oh, and there are protomolecule structures--seemingly ancient ruins that occasionally come to life by spewing swarms of tiny, flying robots--on that new planet. And that's all in the first episode.
The fourth season debuts December 13 on Amazon. Since we know you can't wait, in the meantime, here are 27 new photos from the upcoming episodes. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
