Amazon announced today that The Expanse has been picked up for a fifth season. The good news comes months ahead of Season 4, which has yet to debut at its new streaming home since the online giant revived it from cancellation last year.

The critically-acclaimed space opera started out on Syfy, where it aired its first three seasons between 2015 and 2018. After getting axed from the cable network, there was a substantial outcry from fans, resulting in a #SaveTheExpanse online campaign that included an online petition with over 130,000 signatures and a GoFundMe page which paid for an airplane banner that was flown over Amazon Studios in Santa Monica.

With Season 5 now confirmed, fans can look forward to plenty more of The Expanse over the next year or two. Look for Season 4 to premiere on December 13.
