‘The Expanse’ Season 6: Frankie Adams and Wes Chatham Dance Together On Set During Filming

The Expanse Season 5 was, to say the least, incredibly stressful, and it’s likely The Expanse Season 6 will up the ante. Naomi Nagata’s capture by Inaros and her subsequent escape had fans freaking out. Amos’ escape with Peaches from a bombed-out Earth, and Holden uncovering secrets with his crew as he tries to rescue Nagata only added even more drama to Season 5. 

The ending left fans on a cliffhanger, curious to see what happens next following the defection of an MCRN group to Inaros’ cause, and a strange anomaly forming as they try to enter the ring. Now, it seems like The Expanse Season 6 is filming, and Wes Chatham and Frankie Adams are feeling “Just Fine.”

How did The Expanse Season 5 end?

The Expanse Season 5 was chock full of drama and action. After being kidnapped by Filip and Marco Inaros, Naomi Nagata witnessed her son become a mass murderer. She saw an opportunity to escape and took it, scrambling to disarm a bomb on the Chetzemoka, which Marco Inaros planned to use as bait for Holden. 

Meanwhile, Frankie Adams as Bobbie Draper uncovers arms deals between MCRN operatives and Inaros’ group. She and Alex join the search for Nagata with Holden. Wes Chatham as Amos Burton escapes from Earth with Peaches following the Inaros group’s asteroid attack. 

The Expanse Season 5 ends with Alex suffering a stroke after an intense burn to save Nagata, who was floating in space. Draper pulls in Nagata, and everyone, minus Alex, reunites with Amos and Avasarala.  

A portion of the MCRN fleet, including the Barkeith, goes rogue. Admiral Sauveterre commands the Barkeith towards ring space alongside Marco Inaros. They destroy the UNN ships defending the ring, leaving everyone in shock. Sauveterre is granted the Laconia system by Inaros. Additionally, the protomolecule has been sent through the ring to the villainous scientist, Paolo Cortázar. 

A mysterious red anomaly affects the Barkeith as it attempts to pass through the ring, slowing down time and disintegrating everything. Fans will have to wait for The Expanse Season 6 to learn more.

The Expanse Season 6 sees a cast change

The Expanse Season 6 will be seeing a cast change following accusations of sexual assault against Cas Anvar. The Expanse directors and fellow actors have rallied in support of the accusers, with the show deciding to ditch Cas Anvar in the role of Alex as a result. 

“And, if I may, a wholehearted thank you to those who were brave enough to bring this to us. We hear you. This will get the attention and action such serious allegations deserve. I’m staking my reputation on it,” tweeted the James S.A. Corey account.
