The extragalactic sky in the Fermi era

Abstract : Since its launch by NASA in June 2008, the Fermi satellite has opened a new window on the gamma-ray sky. On-board Fermi, the Large Area Telescope (LAT) detect photons with an energy from 20 MeV to more than 300 GeV. After almost 6 years of monitoring of the sky, the LAT has increased our knowledge of the extragalactic sky with unexpected and sspectacular discoveries like the Cen A Lobes, a detailed measurement of the EBL and more. In this talk, the review of the most important results in the extragalactic sky of the last 6 years will be made as well as what can be expected for the future.
