Some people are playing with the feelings of fans without revealing the actual details but we have spoken the truth with courage. No season 7 is in progress.

The Expanse Season 7 Release Date

No official announcements has been heard from the creators since 2020 regarding the renewal of the series but fans are still expecting another season as some book material is still left to adapt.

Six seasons have covered 6 parts of James SA Corey book series leaving behind 3 books which might be adapted in the new season. That’s why fans are hopeful about a new season but the reality lies close to sadness. There won’t be a season 7 for the Expanse.

Why was the expanse cancelled?

The real reason behind the show’s cancellation was the super high budget of production.

A single episode of The Expanse costs approximately $2 to $5 Million and if there will be two more seasons then they will be way more expensive. Ending the expanse sucks but this is how industry works.

The Expanse season 7(if happen) will follow the story after the three decades of Free Navy Conflict. Bobbie and Holden are assigned to instruct citizens of Freehold about their repeated violations of Union guidelines. Moreover, they would be removed from the trade with the Gate Network if they continue that in the future.

Instead of becoming the bad news informer, Holden will say something beneficial for the Freehold people and will promise to not cut off them from the trade. Holden and Naomi will probably discuss about their retirement from the Rocinate to settle on some moon peacefully.
