How Many Seasons Can Come From The DARK CRYSTAL: AGE OF RESISTANCE?

Thanks to the phenomenal first season of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, fans are now left to wonder where the series will go from here. If Netflix does decide to continue with this new series, what stories can be told? It’s time to look into the mythology introduced in this series, the movie, and the supplemental materials surrounding this franchise to see the possibilities.

SPOILERS FOR THE DARK CRYSTAL: AGE OF RESISTANCE

The first plot point to explore is the whereabouts of the Mystics. At the end of the first season of the Netflix series, we have seen the majority of the Mystics are still in hiding. If the series is working towards reaching the starting point of the film, the Mystics must come out into the open and adopt Jin, who is to be the last of the Gelflings. To this end, the second season will focus on the search for the Mystics while the Skeksis use the Garthim (the new soldiers introduced at the end of the Netflix series) to capture more Gelflings. This new season can be called “The Age of Mystics.”

The Dark Crystal

Moving onto the third season, this one will focus more on the reason Jin was established as “The Last Gelfling” in the film. As seen in one of Deet’s visions, a Gelfling woman is seen carrying a child while being chased by a Garthim. This helps to signify what will happen in the season overall. Misfortune will befall a large number of the cast as the Skeksis will increase their violent campaign to absorb the essence of the Gelflings and drastically reduce their numbers. A fitting name for this season will be “The Age of Extermination.” From here, the show will have caught up to the movie but this doesn’t necessarily mean there isn’t more of the show which can be made.

When the long-proposed sequel to The Dark Crystal, titled The Power Of The Dark Crystal became delayed for years, fans feared the series would never see the light of day. This was until Archaia (A division of Boom! Studios) released an incredible 12 issue mini-series based on the drafts of the scripts for the proposed sequel in 2017. This comic series would perfectly be adapted into the fourth and final season of the Netflix Dark Crystal series. It would serve as a perfect endcap for the series overall.

The Dark Crystal

There you have it, a plan for three additional seasons to receive a deep flushed out telling of the story behind the world of Thra and the fantastic creatures found there. All it will take is for Netflix to get the Jim Henson studios to work their magic and make more of the show.
