Have you been waiting for updates on the second season of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance? We finally got one but it isn't exactly good news. It has been confirmed that Netflix decided to cancel the fantasy series after just one season.
The cancellation was confirmed by Jim Henson Company CEO and executive producer Lisa Henson in a statement shared with io9.
“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,” Henson said. She also pointed out that the studio was grateful for Netflix giving them a start on the show.
“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,” Henson said.
Although we're really disappointed that the show will not continue on Netflix, we're also hopeful considering that Henson is already looking for other networks that will allow them to continue with the series. Here's hoping that we haven't seen the last of the world of Thra just yet.
The first season of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance aired on Netflix in August 2019.
