This is news we are torn to report about, because Amazon has announced that “The Expanse” has been renewed for a 6th season, but- it will the last for the science fiction series.
The other big news with this announcement is that Cas Anvar, who has been accused of various degrees of harassment and abusive behavior by multiple women, will not be returning to the series for season 6.
Co-CEOs and Co-Founders of Alcon Television Group (Executive Producers of “The Expanse“) Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson said of the news:
“From the moment we committed to bringing this show to life up until this final season, we have worked tirelessly to honor the vision of the writers. We have prided ourselves on having one of the most diverse casts on television and giving a platform to stories that matter. A special thanks to Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck, the writers of both the books and series, and to Naren Shankar, the series showrunner and Executive Producer. It continues to be an honor and privilege to work with this team. We also would like to thank Amazon for their continuing support to help us tell this story in its fullest and to bring The Expanse to a global audience.”
