The full artwork has yet to be released, but here is the simplified embroidery version of the International Space Station's Expedition 59 crew patch.

Expedition 59 will include crew members Oleg Kononenko of Roscosmos, Anne McClain of NASA and David Saint-Jacques of the Canadian Space Agency. Two more crew members are still to be officially announced.

ISS Expedition 59 mission patch

The International Space Station's (ISS) Expedition 59 begins with the scheduled undocking of Soyuz MS-10. New crew members will arrive shortly thereafter on Soyuz MS-12.

Expedition 59 will include crew members Oleg Kononenko and Oleg Skripochka with Roscosmos; Anne McClain and Christina Hammock-Koch of NASA; and David Saint-Jacques with the Canadian Space Agency.

Has Shannon Walker been replaced by Christina Koch? I thought Walker had been scheduled to be the Expedition 60 commander. Unless Walker will fly on a commercial flight.

I guess you could call this the end of the shuttle era. McClain and Hammock-Koch, if they're joined by Shannon Walker on Expedition 60, will comprise a U.S. crew with no shuttle experience amongst its members. Same with 57/58.

Looking at a future schedule from another website, it would appear there won't be another American ISS commander after Drew Feustal for close to two years.

Now, officially, yes. Per a NASA release:
Koch has been assigned to Expedition 59/60, which is set to launch to the International Space Station in April 2019.
And per a NASA spokesperson:
Walker is returning to the active corps here at JSC to assume duties in the astronaut office. She will be considered for assignment to future missions.
