With several genre shows having already been cancelled over the past few weeks and months for various reasons, now comes word on another huge favourite being sadly axed.
As initially reported by io9, Netflix has pulled the plug on The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance after just one solitary season.
Despite receiving massive fan and critical acclaim in spotlighting the Gelfling and Skeksis war, that sadly wasn't enough right now to convince Netflix to give the A-OK for a second year for Age of Resistance.
On this news, producer Lisa Henson said, "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"
Serving as a prequel to Jim Henson’s iconic 1982 movie, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance was a true thing of beauty, from its story, to its characters, to its world design, to its ridiculously talented voice cast, and to the creative minds behind the series. It’s just a huge shame that Age of Resistance only got ten episodes and went out on a cliffhanger.
A huge thanks to all involved in putting The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance together – and here’s hoping that somehow, somewhere we get further Dark Crystal adventures down the line.
