Netflix continues its streak of cancelling fan-favorite shows as – fresh off winning an Emmy Award for Outstanding Children’s Program – The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance will not be returning to the streaming service for a second season.
“We can confirm that there will not be an additional season of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance,” said Lisa Henson of The Jim Henson Company. “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. 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.”
Known for its brilliant practical puppetry, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance gained a cult following with its first season, much like the original 1982 from Jim Henson. Louis Leterrier directed the entire season, which is still streaming on Netflix.
