The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance - Cancelled by Netflix [Update: Confirmed]

The Jim Henson company has confirmed the cancellation:

“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. 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.”




Original: September 20th

Looks like Netflix might have quietly cancelled The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, the prequel series to 1982 fan favorite film The Dark Crystal. In an article by The Hollywood Reporter discussing Netflix letting go long time executive Cindy Holland, they discussed Holland being responsible for several expensive shows that did not perform for the streamer

Holland also, per sources, delivered a series of pricey misses including The
Dark Crystal (an "expensive disappointment," per one source connected to the
streamer).


Definitely sounds like Netflix has cancelled the show if it was "an expensive disappointment". The recent Emmy winner for Outstanding Children's Program premiered on Netflix a little over a year ago, and Netflix has yet to officially announce its fate, but such a long wait is rarely a good sign for the future of a show.

We will update whenever an official announcement (if it ever comes) is made by Netflix.
