First of all, we can relax the fans by saying that Amazon’s popular series The Expanse has been renewed for season 5. There was no doubt that this would happen, considering the ratings of the series. However, other questions in mind are when the new season of the series will come out and what the 5th season plotline will be.
The first there season of the series was published Syfy and then “The Expanse” was officially transferred to Amazon, with the announcement made by Amazon boss Jeff Bezos. Amazon gave the approval of the 5th season after the 4th season, which met the audience on 13 December 2019 as well. The series with a score of 8.4 in IMDB is among the best space science fiction productions ever.
According to the news, which was learned by Shohreh Aghdashloo, who played the United Nations secretary Avasarala, the shooting of the new season began in October just before the fourth season was published.
It is stated that the shooting ends mostly but slowed down a bit during the editing stage due to the COVID-19 outbreak. From here, we can make inferences that there are no pandemic problems at least in the shooting phase and there will not be a big delay in the release of the new season of The Expanse.
