What is the plot of The Expanse season 4?

At the end of season three, we found out there were portals which act as gateways to other solar systems with habitable planets.

Humans will now rush to colonise these other planets and compete for their resources.

The first of these worlds is Ilus where a lot of the fourth series will take place.

Series showrunner Naren Shankar told Entertainment Weekly: “You’ve got an entire species and several societies that have defined themselves on the fact that the solar system is all they’ve got, that those resources are what they have.

“But suddenly that all changes. It’s like the discovery of the New World — suddenly there’s land, there’s resources, there’s the potential of making incredible fortunes right there.”
