As Alex (Cas Anvar) says halfway through the beautiful-looking trailer: "Holy shit!"

But that's not all, as Amazon also released a clip from the season, featuring the Rocinante landing on a new planet named Ilus. And, according to Gizmondo, we will be seeing a lot more of that new-found world this coming season.

So, when can we watch the new season of The Expanse? The cast and crew revealed that season 4 will debut on Amazon on December 13, 2019. Not too long to wait.

The official synopses for season 4 has also been released. It reads: "With the Ring Gates now open to thousands of new planets, a blood-soaked gold rush begins, igniting new conflicts between Earth, Mars, and the Belt. Meanwhile, on one unexplored planet, the Rocinante crew gets caught in a violent clash between an Earth mining corporation and desperate Belter settlers as deadly new threats from the protomolecule emerge."
