Amazon Prime Video released some news about the 5th season of The Expanse. The new season of the science fiction series will be streamed on October 16, with the availability of the first three episodes. New chapters will be available every following Wednesday, until February 3, the date of the season finale.
The launch will be on the same model that Amazon used for the 2nd season of The Boys, which has proved to be efficient in popularity, as the series remains commented on by fans for longer than it would have been if it had been released at once.
In addition, the new season of the series had its first trailer released, showing Marco Inaros, commander of the Free Navy, of the population of the Belt, who threatens to go to war against the people of the inner planets.
Watch the trailer:
