The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance
Streaming Service: Netflix
No. of Season: 1
Netflix canceled The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance in September after one season. Though the series premiered in August 2019 to critical acclaim and even hailed as the Outstanding Children’s Program at this year’s Creative Arts Emmys, these were apparently not enough for the streamer to order another season of the show.
Executive producer Lisa Henson, however, implied in a statement confirming the show’s cancellation that fans haven’t seen the last of the world of Thra yet. “We can confirm that there will not be an additional season of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance,” she said. “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.”
A prequel to the 1982 Jim Henson film The Dark Crystal, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance follows the story of three Gelflings: Rian, Deet, and Brea, as they journey together on a quest to unite the Gelfling clans to rise against the tyrannical Skeksis and save their planet Thra from a destructive blight known as the Darkening.
