Screaming Firehawks, we’re only three days away from The Expanse‘s return! And what a glorious return it shall be. The official Twitter account for the Amazon Prime series shared a slew of new character posters in preparation for the impending fifth season. 

Now, each The Expanse poster boasts a fiery background that casts our characters in a similar orangish hue. What appears to be sparks are swirling around them. Everyone looks poised and ready for action. There’s our fearless but flawed leader James Holden (Steven Strait). The best damn engineer in the ‘verse, Naomi Nagata (Dominique Tipper). “I am that guy” and the Roci‘s mechanic Amos Burton (Wes Chatham). Everyone’s favorite expletive-spewing Parliament member Chrisjen Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo). Martian gunnery sergeant extraordinaire a.k.a. Bobbie Draper (Frankie Adams). Charismatic Belter disrupter Marco Inaros (Keon Alexander). Naomi and Marco’s son Filip (Jasai Chase Owens). Lastly, the inciter, Clarissa “Peaches” Mao (Nadine Nicole).

We know that things are about to go pear-shaped for our core crew in The Expanse Season Five. Amos will revisit Baltimore, which is a crucial plot point in the books. Naomi will begin her search for Filip, undoubtedly leading to a reunion with Marco Inaros. Bobbie will delve deeper into the purported conspiracy unraveling on Mars. As per their usual, Holden and Avasarala will (presumably) be embroiled in the center of it all. Oh, and humanity will be setting sail for uncharted territory in the worlds beyond the Ring, which could have deadly repercussions. 

Early reviews for the season are slowly trickling forth. Ars Technica describes the installment as “bigger, bolder and better than ever.” The general consensus appears to be that The Expanse amps up the stakes for Season Five.

You can check out the character posters below. The first three episodes of The Expanse Season Five will be available to stream on Wednesday, December 16, only on Amazon Prime.
