The Expanse is a solid sci-fi series that just happens to find itself in the most unfortunate of circumstances. After three cult hit seasons, the show was originally canceled by Syfy, but then Amazon Prime came to the rescue as fans from around the world gathered to save the show. Now another three hit seasons later, the show has met a similar fate yet again.

The Expanse: Season 7 doesn’t look likely to happen because Amazon Prime has shelved the series. The service stated the sixth season would be the final one, however, there are still three more novels and lots of short stories that haven’t been adapted, so fans are angry and history is repeating itself. While that is bad news, the showrunners are hopeful about the future of the franchise, and if you’re curious about the possibility of a seventh season, here’s everything you need to know.


When Is The Expanse: Season 7 Coming Out?

The Expanse: Season 7 does not have a release date as the show has not been renewed. Amazon announced that the sixth season would close the book on the series and that there are no plans for a seventh season, but if we’re being specific, that doesn’t necessarily mean it won’t ever happen.

The creators of The Expanse books, Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck, have commented on the situation, say ing that they view the sixth season as a halt and that the production company, Alcon Entertainment, is interested in expanding the IP, so The Expanse: Season 7 is definitely in the back of their minds.

There’s also the matter of the story being incomplete. While the series did wrap up most loose ends pretty well in Season 6, too many of the books are still left that need to be brought to life. Support for the show remains strong, and hopefully, it’ll be able to resurrect itself for the second time with The Expanse: Season 7.


Who Is In The Cast of The Expanse: Season 7?

At the moment it’s too early to know who’ll be included in the cast of The Expanse: Season 7, mostly owing to the fact that there’s no word on whether there even will be a seventh season. Be that as it may, you can rest assured that the main cast will be returning.

Steven Strait will portray the Transport Union’s newly crowned president James Holden, Shohreh Aghdashloo and Dominique Tipper are going to reprise their roles as Chrisjen Avasarala and Naomi Nagata respectively, and last but not least, expect to see Wes Chatham back in the shoes of skilled galactic mechanic Amos Burton.

Whether or not The Expanse: Season 7 happens, the creators do have a treat in store for you. The Expanse: Dragon Tooth is a comic series that will continue the story from the finale, bridging the gap between the sixth and seventh books. But that’s not all, there’s also a video game in the works, which is it’s a great indication that the showrunners want to continue the IP, so being optimistic might be the best move for now.
