Amazon today announced to the Television Critics Association that it has renewed its science fiction series The Expanse for a fifth season.
Amazon recorded it last year the series for a fourth season after the Syfy Channel had canceled it, and it announced at San Diego Comic-Con that the new season would debut in December 2019.
The series takes place centuries in the future and is based on a book series by James S.A. Corey, and follows the crew of a spaceship as they navigate a war between different planets in our solar system. Season 4 follows the events of the fourth book in the series, Cibola Burn, although it is currently unclear whether or not Season 5 follows the events of the fifth, Nemesis Games. Amazon did not announce when the series would go into production or when it would be released.
