The Expanse Season 6 got a panel at NYCC 2021, which meant some exciting news. We not only got a release date, but also a teaser for the final season.

It’s New York Comic-Con weekend. You know that means exciting news about many of our favorite shows. A bunch of Amazon shows have panels, and The Expanse has been the first one.

The panel took place on Friday, Oct. 8, and we got some great news about The Expanse Season 6. No, it’s not that it will no longer be the final season, but we do get to know when the new season will arrive.

The Expanse Season 6 officially as a release date. It’ll be released on Friday, Dec. 10.

The Expanse Season 6 will only have six episodes

The release date did bring some disappointing news. The first is that the final season is only going to have six episodes. This is something speculated recently due to how short a timeframe the filming took. There just wasn’t enough time to get more than six episodes in that timeframe with all the pandemic protocols.

Season 6 will also get a weekly release, similar to the fifth season. The first episode will release on Dec. 10 and the series finale will air on Friday, Jan. 14, 2022.

While there was some bad news with the good news along with the release date. We got the teaser for the season.

It’s an action-packed teaser. We see the remaining crew of the Roci deal with their grief and focus on the next fight they have. Marco is still growing his support, and there are a lot of people willing to go to war against the Earthers and the Martians. The Belters are ready for this war.
