Unfortunate news coming out today that streaming service Netflix will not be renewing The Dark Crystal : Age of Resistance and it will be ending after just one season.
The Dark Crystal: Age of Experience debuted on Netflix in August 2019. Directed by Louis Leterrier, the series boasted a star-studded cast and industry-changing puppetry. The first season ended on a cliffhanger, with the crystal shard being discovered and the clans of Thra finally uniting against the Skeksis.
With Netflix being no stranger to wielding the axe on popular series this comes as no major surprise as the series’s future has been up in the air for sometime.
All may not be lost however for fans of the Dark Crystal saga wanting to know the end of the story as Jim Henson company CEO and Executive Producer Lisa Henson shared with an online entertainment news site I09:
“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.”
So fingers crossed all round this is not the end of the Crystal story.
