The first three episodes of The Expanse Season 5 are on Amazon Prime Video tonight

At long last, The Expanse Season 5 is on its way. It’s been a long wait, and we know it will be worth it, but it’s so good to have new episodes.

The first three episodes will drop at once at midnight GMT tonight. Keep a lookout from 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on Amazon Prime Video. There is a strong chance the new episodes will drop early. The Wilds did last week.

And yes, it is just the first three of 10 episodes. After this, the episodes are airing weekly. This isn’t an Amazon decision, but a show decision, just like with The Boys Season 2. This may start happening more often in an attempt to encourage viewers to keep shows on their minds for longer. The Expanse Season 5 finale will air on Feb. 3, 2021.

What to expect on The Expanse Season 5

The fifth season picks up with humans leaving the solar system. They’re heading for a new world and new resources. And that makes sense considering everything that has happened so far. Resources are running out, and it was only a matter of time before everyone would look for new places.

The biggest situation to deal with, though, is the rising anger among the Belters. The people there have been exploited for centuries. They’re disenfranchised, and now they’re rising up in rebellion. It’s extremely similar to that of the American Revolutionary War, especially the Regulators in the run-up to the war. History has a habit of repeating itself.

Meanwhile, our Roci crew will face their own demons and secrets. At some point, Cas Anver will leave this season. He’s confirmed to not return for The Expanse Season 6.
