Netflix has confirmed the cancelation of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance after one season. The news is a bit of a shock as the series just won an Emmy last night.
The show combined the traditional puppetry of the Jim Henson Company with modern effects to create a captivating prequel to the 1982 film. It featured an all star voice-cast including Taron Egerton, Anya Taylor-Joy, Nathalie Emmanuel, Mark Hamill, Helena Bonham-Carter, and Keegan-Michael Key.
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance told a captivating story, but ended on a note that led audiences to believe that more seasons would follow. Luckily for us, all hope isn’t lost.
Deadline quoted executive producer Lisa Henson saying:
“We can confirm that there will not be an additional season of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. We know fans are eager to learn how this chapter of The Dark Crystal saga concludes and we’ll look for ways to tell that story in the future. Our company has a legacy of creating rich and complex worlds that require technical innovation, artistic excellence, and masterful storytelling. Our history also includes productions that are enduring, often finding and growing their audience over time and proving again and again that fantasy and science fiction genres reflect eternal messages and truths that are always relevant. We are so grateful to Netflix for trusting us to realize this ambitious series; we are deeply proud of our work on Age of Resistance, and the acclaim it has received from fans, critics and our peers, most recently receiving an Emmy for Outstanding Children’s Program.”
