The final version of the Soyuz spacecraft, Soyuz MS is expected to make it's first flight sometime this year. Given this redesign will fly for the first time this year, I expect it will be around for a number of years. The replacement spacecraft is to be the PPTS (Prospective Piloted Transport System) which now known as 'Federation'. It may or may not have a reusable crew capsule component to it. The craft is still under development and is not expected to make it's first flight until at least 2021. Here's the wikipedia page on it: LINK
