After a cancellation and fan petition, Amazon Prime Video had renewed the sci-fi show The Expanse with a season five confirmed months before the fourth season even premiered.
Release date of The Expanse season 5?
If we keep the release of previous seasons in mind, it can be expected that The Expanse will drop in a year or so after the release of season four – so around December 2020.
The shooting of The Expanse’s fifth season wrapped up in February 2020. Breck Eisner, director of the series, tweeted a video saying, “That’s a wrap! I’m proud of the work we’ve all done this year.”
