Amos (Wes Chatham) returns to Earth to confront his past in Season 5 of “The Expanse.”


Amazon Prime Video

Amazon Prime Video is heading into the holidays with a slate of critically acclaimed original movies and new installments of two of its most popular series.

Season 5 of the sci-fi epic “The Expanse” (Dec. 16) will see the crew of the Rocinante scattered around the solar system while a terrorist group plots a potentially catastrophic attack against Earth. Two days later, former “Top Gear” hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May return with “The Grand Tour Presents: A Massive Hunt” (Dec. 18), as the gang tours and races around Reunion Island and Madagascar in the second installment after “The Grand Tour” tweaked its format.
