The Expanse Season 6 Gets a Tense, Action-Packed First Look

Gizmodo 09 October, 2021 - 04:30pm

Just six more episodes to wrap up the entire show

If you’ve been devoutly following The Expanse, you know things are bad in the universe of the show. Earth’s on fire, beloved characters have died, and a mass murderer is gaining an awful lot of support.

Here’s how Amazon describes season 6:

How can Amazon possibly wind up the show in just six episodes? (A colleague points out to me that the books dedicate three entire novels to exploring this current story arc in the show.) Well, my hope is that Amazon won’t exactly tie it up with a bow. While the company did save the show in 2018 after it got canceled by SyFy, showrunner Naren Shankar and actress Dominique Tipper (who plays Naomi) both hinted to Entertainment Weekly that there could be life after Amazon, too.

Perhaps Netflix, Hulu, or even Apple TV Plus (remember, Apple snapped up Foundation, a show based on seminal sci-fi work) might step in?

When Collider interviewed the show’s producers (who are also the books’ authors, by the way) back in February, it sounded like they were going to leave room for more:

I think, the thing that season six does is it pays off the story that we began in episode one of season one where the Martians, the Earthers and the Belters were all in this incredibly uneasy and unstable political system with the Belters absolutely being at the foot of that table and everybody fighting for their place in the solar system. I think we pay off that story in a very satisfying way. And we keep some of the mystery intact involving the greater forces of the universe that humans are only starting to become aware. If we want to tell more stories.

There’s a shadow hanging over the series now, though, one that might make it less attractive to acquire: The Expanse’s showrunners wrote Cas Anvar’s character (Rocinante pilot Alex Kamal) off the show entirely after he was accused of sexual harassment and assault by many women.

The Expanse Season 6 Trailer: The Science Fiction Series Reaches Its Endgame

/Film 09 October, 2021 - 04:30pm

The sixth and final season of the "The Expanse" is set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video this year, and during the show's panel at New York Comic Con, we learned exactly how much longer the wait will be.

"The Expanse" showrunner Naren Shankar revealed that the show will return with its season 6 premiere on December 10, 2021, with subsequent episodes releasing every Friday. The panel also dropped a trailer for season 6, which hints at what the crew of the Rocinante — and the rest of the solar system — have in store for them.

"We're broken, trying desperately to keep ourselves going, pretending we're not." This statement is not only my inner monologue for the last 15 months, but also what the formidable Chrisjen Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo) says in voiceover in the teaser, reminding us that the last season of "The Expanse" saw billions of people killed.

"We must remember the lives we've lost. The pain we've suffered," Avasarala goes on. She's talking about Marco Inaros (Keon Alexander), Naomi's (Dominique Tipper) former lover who has become a major OPA terrorist and orchestrated a horrific attack on Earth last season. We get glimpses of Marco in the teaser as well with Filip (Jasai Chase Owens), Naomi and Marco's son. We also see ships blowing up and a blue-hued person, suggesting that she's been touched by the alien protomolecule in some way.

Teaser not enough for you? Here's the official synopsis for "The Expanse" season 6:

"The Expanse" also stars Steven Strait as James Holden, Wes Chatham as Amos, Cara Gee as Camina Drummer, Frankie Adams as Bobbie Draper, and Nadine Nicole as Clarissa Mao.

"The Expanse" season 6 premieres on Amazon Prime Video on December 10, 2021. The remaining five episodes will then drop weekly on Fridays, with the series finale releasing on January 14, 2022.

CM Punk Says He “Gets Excited” When AEW Star’s Music Hits - Wrestling Inc.

CBR - Comic Book Resources 08 October, 2021 - 03:10pm

In a new interview with Sports Illustrated, AEW’s CM Punk emphasized how reinvigorated he feels returning to the squared circle after a seven year hiatus. And although it’s uncommon for people in the locker room to express how excited they are to be around certain stars, Punk says AEW is different.

“It hits me on a different level for a lot of reasons,” Punk says. “I’m not the kind to stand in the back and wait to go out. I’m running around backstage and I’m mingling. There’s a group of people, with their faces constantly changing, always around. And just seeing the look on their faces, that hits me right in the chest.

“Wrestling is different. You’re not supposed to be a ‘mark’ and you’re not supposed to take pictures with someone you share a locker room with. The culture is different in AEW. I get excited when Adam Cole’s music hits. I think he can see that on my face,” he continued. “There is an excitement in the locker room, and then I see the fans, and it’s amazing. Every new city I go to, these people haven’t seen me in seven years. It’s like Aug. 20 all over again for me.”

Punk looks at his return similarly to how NHL legend Ray Bourque moved from the Bruins to the Avalanche. Bourque’s team would build momentum until they won the Stanley Cup in 2001. “The Straight Edge Star” says his story will take on the same direction where he will build his way back to the top.

“Ray Bourque, that’s exactly who I am,” Punk says. “You’re going to have to Google that if you’re not a hockey person, but that’s exactly who I am. I’m the f**king old guy on the team, and I’m there to score goals, block shots and do whatever the f**k I can to help the team win. I’m there in those in-between moments in the locker room to help people along. That’s my role backstage.

“To me, that’s the story I want to tell on the screen. I see some of the comments like, ‘CM Punk’s not in the story line.’ Yes, I am. The story is I’ve been gone for seven years and I came back. I’m starting at the bottom and making my way to the top. That’s the story.”
