It’s heartbreaking for fans to know that season six will be the end of the series.
Many fans are still hoping for a series update for a seventh season and here’s what we know so far about “The Expanse” Season 7.
The Expanse Season 7 Release Date
As we know, Season 6 of the series is said to be the last, so it’s possible that we may not see any further series updates. Amongst the news of the update, Vernon Sanders, former deputy head of television at Amazon Studios, thanked the series’ production team as well as the fans.
He said in a statement, “We would like to thank Naren, Andrew, Broderick, everyone at Alcon and the entire ‘The Expanse’ group for the time, effort and love they have put into the the last two seasons.”
So, considering the information we have so far, it’s unlikely that this series will be updated.
However, the crew behind it remains positive regarding the fate of the show after season 6 on the streaming platform. so, you never know. their minds might change and they might opt for the update. But again, this is all just speculation.
The Expanse Season 7: Expected Plot
The storyline of the seventh season of the series depends on the end of Season 6, so let’s dive into the events that took place in “The Expanse Season 6”.
With Earth still reeling from an asteroid strike by Belter commander Marco Inaros and his Free Navy, action must be taken without wasting time.
In addition to killing many people on a massive scale, asteroids are also causing a worldwide climate crisis. The result is a massive food crisis, which Belters, who have traditionally fought for access to clean air and water, have seen as a sign of justice.
Months after an asteroid strike toppled Chrisjen Avasarala, the United Nations has been rebuilt under his leadership. Soldiers Rocinante and Mars help him in his fight against Marco.
Avasarala has always topped the list of the best characters in the series. While walking around in his impressive attire, he passed the bluffs of other politicians.
During this season, he’s been at his peak ever since he made peace with people in the first episode of The Expanse. When first seen, he was mocking Belter with the earth’s gravity.
The show excels because it doesn’t try to provide an adequate ending to a dispute that has been discussed for 6 seasons.
