The Expanse, season 5

The hit sci-fi series returns for its fifth season after making the leap to Amazon Studios, and the upcoming story arc appears to raise the stakes once again as the crew of the Rocinante — and the allies they’ve made in prior seasons — confront the sins of their past. A revolutionary leader rises as humans leave the solar system in search of fortune among alien worlds, and what comes next could change the relationship between Earth, Mars, and the Belt in ways no one anticipated.
