Expanse Season 5 will soon hit Amazon Prime and we are already excited about it. Naren Shankar, the showrunner, recently divulged that the fifth season will borrow heavily from the fifth and sixth books.
What is The Expanse Season 5 About?
Expanse is a web series that is mostly based on the book series by James S. A. Corey of the same name. The sci-fi mystery revolves around the future humans that have colonized the solar system and Mars has developed into an independent army. The rising action takes place when the tension between Earth and Mars starts building up.
We expect to see most of the original cast to retain their roles in the Expanse Season 5. There might be some minor changes or the addition of new faces.
Here is a quick rundown of the main cast-
Jim Holden portrayed by Steven Strait
Alex Kamal played by Cas Anvar
Naomi Nagata played by Dominique Tipper
Amos Burton by Wes Chatham
Chrisjen Avasarala portrayed by Shohreh Aghdashloo
Roberta ‘Bobbie’ W. Drapes played by Frankie Adams
Cadaver Errinwright by Shawn Doyle
Cara Gee as Camina Drummer
Joe Miller played by Thomas Jane
Julie Mao by Florence Faivre
Marco Iranos played by Keon Alexander
And other characters.
As we mentioned earlier, season 5 is based on book numbers 5 and 6. And in the fifth book, Nemesis Games, the Rocinante crew struggles to survive as the ships around them start vanishing mysteriously. Meanwhile, some armies are being secretly formed.
Moreover, the sixth book follows a group of Belters in black military ships that have crippled the Earth and have begun a violent campaign amongst the outer planets.
The fifth season will more or less follow this story of the two books with some changes.
