‘Night Sky’ Canceled After One Season At Amazon's Prime Video

Amazon’s Prime Video has decided to not renew Night Sky starring Oscar winners Sissy Spacek and J.K. Simmons for a second season. The series was from Amazon Studios and Legendary Television.

The logline was as follows: Spanning space and time, Night Sky follows Irene (Sissy Spacek) and Franklin York (J.K. Simmons), a couple who, years ago, discovered a chamber buried in their backyard which inexplicably leads to a strange, deserted planet. They’ve carefully guarded their secret ever since, but when an enigmatic young man (Chai Hansen) enters their lives, the Yorks’ quiet existence is quickly upended…and the mystifying chamber they thought they knew so well turns out to be much more than they could ever have imagined.

As Variety reported, the series’ historic launch included a that had the first episode of “Night Sky” sent into outer space, describing it as “the farthest distance that a TV series has been intentionally distributed.”

Prime Video’s decision to cancel the series arrived about a month and a half after the show’s premiere.

Chai Hansen, Kiah McKirnan, Julieta Zylberberg, Rocío Hernández and Adam Bartley also starred.
