The Expanse will return this December, and fans can get first look at the show’s final season in a teaser trailer released during its Friday panel at New York Comic Con 2021.

The cast and creators of the Amazon Studios series gathered for a virtual panel and sneak peek, revealing just a bit of what happens after Marco Inaros’ attack on Earth.

“The tensions of war and shared loss threaten to pull the crew of the Rocinante apart,” Amazon Studios said in a news release. “Chrisjen Avasarala makes a bold move and sends former Martian Marine Bobbie Draper on a secret mission that could turn the tide of the conflict. Meanwhile, in the Belt, Drummer and what’s left of her family are on the run after betraying Marco. And on a distant planet beyond the Rings, a new power begins to rise.”

The new six-episode season will be the final one for The Expanse. It’s set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video on Friday, Dec. 10, with an “epic series finale” on Jan. 14, 2022.
