The series had a mega a-list cast starring Taron Egerton, Nathalie Emmanuel, Anya Taylor-Joy, Jason Isaacs, Benedict Wong, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Keegan-Michael Key, Mark Hamill, Simon Pegg, Helena Bonham Carter, Andy Samberg, Natalie Dormer, Theo James, and more.

In an article exclusively posted by io9, executive producer Lisa Henson confirmed the news stating:

"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."

The series followed a group of three young Gelflings who uncover frightening details concerning the evil and grim Skeksis and plan to stir up and consume their subjects' life energy via the dark crystal in order to fuel their own. Netflix also released a statement to io9, stating:

"We are grateful to the master artists at The Jim Henson Company for bringing The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance to life for fans around the world. We're thankful to the executive producers Lisa Henson and Halle Stanford, and Louis Leterrier, who also directed all episodes, as well as the writers, cast and crew for their outstanding work and thrilled they were recognized with the Emmy this weekend."

Fans hope to find a new home to continue the series, but for now audiences can watch season one on Netflix.
