The Expanse Season 4: Release Date And Episode Count
The Expanse Season 4 is coming to Amazon, and fans are very anxious to know everything about the upcoming season, from release date to cast, and production information.
If you’re one of those fans, you’re at the right place because we’ll be sharing everything that we know about this series here. This post may also have minor spoilers. If you don’t like spoilers, I suggest you stop reading the post here. However, if spoilers don’t bother you, we can get started.
After Syfy dropped the series, Amazon struck a deal with Alcon Entertainment to keep producing more seasons of The Expanse. Thanks to this, the fourth season was saved. Alcon Entertainment Co-Founders and Co-CEOs Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson talked about this new deal with Amazon and said:
“We couldn’t be more excited that The Expanse is going to continue on Amazon Prime. We are deeply grateful that Jeff Bezos, Jen Salke, and their team at Amazon have shown such faith in our show. We also want to thank Laura Lancaster, head of Alcon Television for her tireless efforts.
We are fully aware that this wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for the tremendous outpouring of support from the most creative, hardest working sci-fi fans around the world. From Reddit campaigns to airplanes, we say thank you. It worked!”
But when will The Expanse Season 4 arrive? The answer to that is 2019. Deadline has previously assured fans that while an exact release date for The Expanse Season 4 isn’t known, it will return at some point in 2019 which is great news for the fans.
The show should have done almost all of its production work by now, so I don’t think we have to wait for too long. The Expanse Season 4 is said to have a total of 10 episodes. While that isn’t a lot, it is still a good number, and we hope that it continues beyond season 4 as well.
The fourth season will continue where it left in the third season, and we will see more of Ilus and also, start taking the story from the fourth book in the series, Cibola Burn, to get more of the story, which was affirmed by Naren Shankar, the showrunner. Sanders confirmed that we are going to see the flipped side of The Ring in the fourth season, and all the questions will be answered too!

Till now, there is no confirmed release date available, and no details about the progress have been announced. But we have got another news, which might excite you even more. We have got exclusive new cast member details which are as below,
Lily Gao as?
Keon Alexander as a wily and charismatic Belter faction leader
Jess Salgueiro as a cynical corporate security officer
According to the data provided above, Lily Gao’s character is not yet defined, but Keon Alexander and Jess Salgueiro’s roles have been announced, but the names are still kept under wrap. Additionally, the name of the first episode has been decided, which is called “New Terra,” and has been written by Mark Fergus & Hawk Ostby. The next season is supposed to revolve around Cibola Burn, and that is the reason that the finale episode of the fourth season is also named “Cibola Burn.”

The show has been kept under wraps well, as nothing is coming out. We do know that the filming finished back in February 2019. Now, the show takes roughly 4-5 months to release after the filming completes. So, the calculated anticipation can be put in July or August of 2019.
Officially it was only announced that the show would be released in 2019, and nothing specific was revealed. Back in January, Deadline also reported that the show would return in 2019, while nothing more certain was announced.
