Today is a blessed day, Beltalowda! Not only were we given official key art for Season Five of The Expanse, but now there are a slew of new stills from the upcoming season! More content in which we can sink our collective teeth. 

Now, the photos below offer a glimpse at what’s to come for Season Five. A handful of said photos introduce us to Admiral Delgado, played by Michael Irby. It appears he’ll be interacting the most with Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo), but he does have a scene with both Avasarala and Amos (Wes Chatham). Perhaps Amos will encounter a few governmental speedbumps while on Earth. 

Additionally, Monica Stuart (Anna Hopkins) will be making her triumphant return. One of the images reveals Monica and Holden (Steven Strait) chatting it up at a bar. We last saw Monica being ejected from the Roci outside the Ring in Season Three. It appears she’s at Tycho, and it would make sense since Holden also makes a pit stop at Fred Johnson’s station.  

There are two photos that feature Fred Johnson (Chad L. Coleman) and members of the Roci: one with Johnson and Holden, and the other with Johnson and Naomi (Dominique Tipper). It’s safe to assume that Johnson will be aiding Naomi in her search for Filip. But why is Holden at Tycho? My guess is he’s there as a show of support for Naomi or he has something else up his sleeve. While Ilus is no more, Holden is still embroiled in an intergalactic war between Earth, Mars and the Belt. 

But that’s not all! We’ve got a shot of Marco Inaros (Keon Alexander) looking positively stoic. Young Filip Inaros (Jasai Chase Owens). Bona fide badass Drummer (Cara Gee). Bobbie (Frankie Adams), another bona fide badass, lifting weights. Amos, presumably en route to Earth. There’s also a still of Avasarala proffering a smirk, most likely at someone she bested in every way possible.
