Night Sky, a sci-fi fiction drama streaming TV series produced by Holden Miller and Daniel C. Connolly, has been cancelled by Amazon Prime Video after just one season. The show’s first season ended on July 29, 2021, and fans were eagerly anticipating the release of season 2. However, the decision to cancel the show came just six weeks after all eight episodes of the first season debuted on the streaming platform on May 20.
The show’s main characters, Irene (played by Spacek) and Franklin (played by Simmons), claimed ownership of a chamber that led to a different universe. They had kept their secret hidden for years until a mysterious young man entered their lives and turned their world upside down. The show was produced by Legendary Television and Amazon Studios and also featured Chai Hansen, Kiah McKirnan, Julieta Zylberberg, Roco Hernández, and Adam Bartley.
Amazon Prime Video took advantage of the show’s sci-fi theme by sending the first episode of Night Sky into space instead of using satellites to send the signal back to Earth. The company claimed that this was “the farthest distance that a TV show has been sent on purpose.” The show’s creator and executive producer is Daniel C. Connolly, while Holden Miller is also an executive producer. The show is also run by executive producers Jimmy Miller, Sam Hensen, and Philip Martin.
Unfortunately, there is no chance of receiving any more footage of Night Sky given the promptness of the cancellation following the initial release. Fans will have to accept that this will simply be another mystery surrounding the cosmos and everything else.
