To celebrate, the streamer has dropped a brand new trailer that shows a mission going horribly wrong. 

The Expanse Season 4 finds “the crew of the Rocinante on a mission from the U.N. to explore new worlds beyond the Ring Gate,” according to the official synopsis.

“Humanity has been given access to thousands of Earth-like planets which has created a land rush and furthered tensions between the opposing nations of Earth, Mars and the Belt. Ilus is the first of these planets, one rich with natural resources but also marked by the ruins of a long dead alien civilization."

"While Earthers, Martians and Belters maneuver to colonize Ilus and its natural resources, these early explorers don’t understand this new world and are unaware of the larger dangers that await them.”

Over on HBO, we have a teaser trailer for Avenue 5, a brand new comedy series that features Hugh Laurie as the man at the helm of a doomed cruise liner in the sky. 

The series is a “space tourism comedy set 40 years in the future, when the solar system is everyone’s oyster.”
