The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance was released on Netflix this past Friday to praise from fans and critics alike. Now, according to executive producer Lisa Henson, the showrunners have plenty of ideas for another season – depending if Netflix calls for a second season.
In a recent interview with Yahoo, Henson, the daughter of Jim Henson, claimed the original pitch for Age of Resistance went beyond the first season of the series, but only time will tell if they can expand the story further.
“When [showrunners] Jeffrey Addiss and Will Matthews pitched us their version of the series, it actually did continue on past this and then we realized it was moving too quickly and we cut it back,” Henson said. “So even though we made 10 episodes, we only have produced six of their original episodes. We definitely have ideas about where it goes from here, but time will tell if we’ll be making a Season 2 or not.”
