No Season 2 for the fantasy drama.
September 21, 2020
It is being reported that Netflix has cancelled The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance after only one season. The sad news comes just over a year after the puppet fantasy drama aired its freshman run of 10 episodes.
The series, which acts as a prequel to the original 1982 Jim Henson movie, garnered strong critical praise upon its release. And just this weekend, it picked up an Emmy Award for Outstanding Children's Program.
Executive producer Lisa Henson hopes to find a way to continue the story. In a released statement she said, "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."
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance follows three brave Gelflings from different clans who are on a quest to save their planet Thra. Together, they inspire a rebellion against the power-hungry Skeksis after discovering a horrifying secret behind their power. Now they must fight off the darkness and stop their planet's life from being drained.

love this show. I never saw the original cause it was made a million years before i was born, but this was awesome. so much fun and the visuals were awesome. i blame the pandemic for its cancellation. a lot of shows have been cut cause of filming complications or viewership suffered cause of it.

No one wants to see puppet animations in 2020, it might have been nice for kids in the 80s, but it's been decades. Don't keep digging up stuff from the past, just create something new

One of my favorite films of all time. This show matched it and, in some ways, surpassed it. It's a self contained story so there really isn't a need for another season, but there are limitless stories to tell in that beautiful world. I'm on my fourth viewing and find something new each time. Huge Henson fan and he'd undoubtedly love this. Original film co-director, Frank Oz, voiced his affection for this series. Netflix is mismanaged and doesn't know how to promote or release a show with any lasting memory. It is they who need to clean house.

This doesn't surprise me. The show wasn't very good. Any fan of the movie will tell you that. I gave up about mid-season.

The movie gave me nightmares. So of course I passed on the show

I grew up a huge fan of the movie. That being said, the show just wasn't good. I really wanted to like it, but I couldn't even finish it.

Netflix is charging way too much money for shows it cancels after a season, and for dubbing foreign shows to pass off as original programming. I swap streaming services in and out all the time, and right now, Netflix looks like it's next on the chopping block.

I saw the movie in theaters when it came out; then I heard of this show but I've learned to wait until a 2nd season is confirmed before investing time in the 1st one... perhaps I'm part of the problem, but perhaps I'm simply wise...

Hands down the best series that year. Sure it has to be canceled. Produce another sh***y reality show instead.

Disappointed. Netflix had a gem here, but I suppose it was probably pretty expensive to produce, so perhaps not totally surprising that it got cancelled. I guess making a prequel series based on a 40 year old movie was just a little too optimistic.
