The Expanse took some drastic but necessary measures following accusations of sexual misconduct levied against Alex Kamal actor Cas Anvar. As a result, The Expanse Season 6 will not feature Cas Anvar reprising his role. In fact, Alex Kamal was killed off and removed from the series entirely as a result of Cas Anvar’s behavior. 

In 2020, various individuals came out with accusations of sexual misconduct against Cas Anvar. Notably, Anvar stood accused by a number of fans and convention-goers of sexually inappropriate behavior, as well as retaliatory behavior against those who called him out. 

The Expanse writers Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck were quick to take to the James S.A. Corey Twitter account to jointly announce that they are grateful for those who came forward and that they are investigating Cas Anvar. 

“Latest news from our studio. They are taking the recent allegations very seriously, and have hired an independent third-party investigator. Everyone is fully committed to the truth here. But they need a little time to do their work. Updates as I have them,” the duo

The Expanse Season 6 cast is part of what makes the show so incredible. Wes Chatham, Dominique Tipper, Steven Strait, and Frankie Adams, among others, are the fabric of the show. However, the cast is undergoing some changes, largely when it comes to the crew of the Rocinante. While the majority of the crew remains the same, Cas Anvar has been dropped entirely following accusations of sexual misconduct. It also remains unclear whether or not his temporary replacement, Bull, will be making an appearance on the show. 

‘The Expanse’ Season 6 cast: Who is returning?

The Expanse Season 6 is slated for its Amazon Prime Video debut on December 10, 2021. Although Cas Anvar will not be reprising the role of Alex Kamal in The Expanse Season 6, the rest of the Rocinante crew remains unchanged, as do the show’s other core actors.

The Expanse Season 6 will star Steven Strait as James Holden, Dominique Tipper as Naomi Nagata, Wes Chatham as Amos Burton, Shohreh Aghdashloo as Chrisjen Avasarala, Cara Gee as Camina Drummer, Frankie Adams as Bobbie Draper, Keon Alexander as Marco Inaros, Nadine Nicole as Clarissa Mao, and Jasai Chase Owens as Filip Inaros.

Interestingly, it remains unclear whether or not Bull, played by José Zúñiga, will be returning to the Rocinante. Bull took over the role of pilot during Alex Kamal’s departure to save Naomi Nagata and helped the crew following Kamal’s death. 

Bull did not appear to be featured during The Expanse Season 6 trailer. It remains to be seen whether or not the Rocinante will have a new pilot at all, or if one of the pre-existing crew will attempt to take over that role.
