News VOD 50/21: ‘The Expanse’, beginning of the end of the last great space opera

VOD news brings you the best releases of the week on Netflix, HBO Max, Amazon Prime Video, Disney + … And we face the final recat of the year with a multitude of forgettable premieres for the most part, so we recognize The Expanse the path traveled seemed the most appropriate. But that is not for news …

We start this week with Amazon Prime Video, which not only aims to hook its subscribers with The Expanse, although this is undoubtedly the most interesting of its offer.

What to say about The Expanse that I have not already said! The science fiction series started by Syfy drew attention from the first moment, which was not an obstacle for the chain to cut it off as it does with most of what it puts out … And Netflix came to the rescue, producing its second and third seasons, but leaving it halfway … And Amazon came to the rescue, yes, promising to end the story with one more season that ended up being six.

Thus, the platform has released this week the first chapter of the sixth and final season of The Expanse, the most special special opera of recent years, and flattery is not free: to find something of the same level we have to go back to series such as Battlestar galactica or Firefly. It remains to be seen if Foundation can fill the gap that leaves The Expanse, but meanwhile fans of the latter have several weeks ahead of cosmic delight.

Aside from The Expanse prime Video releases other exclusive content among which we can highlight Encounter, a film also framed in the field of science fiction, but with a much more earthly character than the previous one and with a somewhat lukewarm, if not cold, reception by critics.
