News & Interviews for The Expanse: Season 5
Even with the protomolecule saga relatively sidelined this season, "The Expanse" draws so much strength from exposing how fragile an expansive society like this is.
While the fifth season takes a little longer to gain momentum... it builds to a breathtaking crescendo that represents a new high mark for the series...
Thankfully, The Expanses's fifth season focuses on where its strength really lies - in its women of color characters, specifically, its WOC mothers.
Science fiction is always about the present, even if - especially if - it's set in the future.
Season 5 gets off to a blinding start and has a good end, it's just some storylines sag in the middle, while others never get off the starting block.
