Distant future. Humanity has colonized all existing alien races and now gives orders to those who are below them in rank. But many do not agree with this, because it is not their fault that they were not born on Earth. Against the background of these conflicts, several stories unfold, which in the end must intertwine with each other.
“The Expanse ss 2”: release date, announcement
The sequel to the fantastic saga “The Expanse” will appear on December 10, 2021! Despite the outrage of writers Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck over the closure of the show, Season 6 will be the final. Daniel and Ty have promised that they will fight to ensure that the 6th season is not the final.
Humanity has long expanded its domains, sweeping at the planets they ultimately enslaved. The solar system is colonized, the military forces are concentrated on Mars. Anyone who tries to plot against the earthlings faces the worst fate. Having learned that someone is persuading people to revolt, Chrisjen Avasarala personally interrogates the aliens who have arrived on Earth.
Very soon it becomes known that turbulent times are coming, which may shake the familiar world. While Avasarala is interrogating and gathering information bit by bit, Joe Miller is trying to eliminate the mistakes he made. Selling himself to one of the businessmen for a penny, he turned a blind eye to the violations that led to the death of people.
Deciding not to leave everything unpunished, Miller commits reprisal against the businessman and decides to no longer deal with such people. Another participant in the story, James Holden, travels with a team of people on the ship and helps those who ask for it. For several years he has been with them, and even managed to create a love relationship with one of his colleagues.
One day they receive a signal for help, but decide not to respond to it. On duty at night, James decides to listen to the strange signal again. But instead of acting like colleagues, he responds to a challenge. Going in search of the person who sent the signal, James takes several people with him. They are conducting a search on someone else’s ship, when suddenly there is a connection with their ship.
There, beloved James wants to tell him something important, but in the end they are separated. And James sees the ship they just connected to explode. There was no one left, only a couple of comrades, relations with whom were not very good. And what should they do now, on a strange ship, in which everything that surrounds is alien?
Each season is a new hero who overcomes all difficulties in order to achieve the ultimate goal. It is not always possible to find a common language with other people and resolve the issue without war. But on the other hand, there are always people who can significantly reduce losses.
Actors and their roles
- James Holden – traveled with the crew, finding those in need of help, but once fell into a trap, fleeing from his ship and leaving most of his comrades on board; he ended up with a small group of survivors, with whom they continued on their way – Steven Strait.
- Joe Miller – a corrupt cop; an earthling, distinguished from the rest by his craving for wearing a hat; he was bribed, but after a high-profile scandal in which, through Joe’s fault, one entrepreneur did not change the air filters, Miller decided to stop with bribes and get down to work with all responsibility – Thomas Jane.
- Chrisjen Avasarala – holds a high office; belongs to the race of people; helps to identify the instigators of the revolt against humanity; loves her grandson very much and tries to behave with him not like a commander, but like a grandmother – Shohreh Aghdashloo.
- The TV show belongs to the science fiction genre and has been aired by SyFy since 2015. In 2019, it was decided to close the show, and then Amazon stepped in, which bought the project. Since then, both ratings and viewers’ attention have grown, and the TV series “The Expanse” was able to embody all the books written on it on the screen.
- When in season 1 Steven Strait needed to burst into tears after losing his on-screen lover, the actor refused to do this, because according to the script his character is very restrained and generally tears do not fit the description of the commander. On reflection, the director decided to agree with Strait, which was the right decision in the end.
- An interesting actress like Shohreh Aghdashloo was not invited by chance, because the director wanted to show the versatility of the human race. Most of the airtime, Shohreh’s heroine wore a sari and dyed like an Indian. In life, she also prefers such outfits, but the profession of an actress sometimes obliges her to wear something that will not be so striking.
- Thomas Jane dreamed of a beard, but was never able to grow it, since for each of his roles it was necessary for his character to be clean-shaven. Jane promised to grow a beard after Season 6, but who knows – maybe Season 7 is coming?
