It’s time to say goodbye to the Gelflings. Deadline reports Netflix is not renewing The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.
The series is a prequel to the events of 1982’s The Dark Crystal by Jim Henson. Lisa Henson, Jim’s daughter, broke the news of the show’s demise. “We can confirm that there will not be an additional season of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance,” said Lisa Henson, executive producer. “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. 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.“
The show won the 2020 Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Children’s program a few days ago. Actors Taron Egerton, Anya Taylor-Joy, Nathalie Emmanuel, Caitriona Balfe, Helena Bonham Carter, Natalie Dormer, Eddie Izzard, Theo James, Harvey Fierstein, and Mark Hamill can all be heard in the series!
