Renewed Or Cancelled?
Night Sky is the latest slow-paced sci-fi mystery airing on Amazon Prime. With an intriguing central premise and some excellent acting from its cast, Night Sky has been an endearing watch over the 8 episodes. If you’ve been following this one and reached that tantalizing cliffhanger of an ending, you may be wondering if this one’s been renewed or cancelled.
What is Night Sky Season 1 about?
Night Sky is set in Illinois and follows the lives of Franklin and Irene York. They’re a normal elderly couple, living out their lives while trying to succumb the crippling effects of old age. Only, they have a secret. It turns out the shed in their garden holds a secret doorway that leads them up to an alien observatory deck, overlooking a breathtaking vista.
When a stranger inexplicably shows up in the deck one morning, Franklin and Irene find their lives changed forever. Shadowy forces appear to be at work here, while Jude appears to hold the key to uncovering exactly what’s going on here.
We have extensive coverage on Night Sky across the site, including ongoing recaps for all 8 episodes. Feel free to check them out HERE!
Has Night Sky been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, Amazon have not renewed Night Sky for season 2. Given the decent ratings and the mystery box nature of this series, it’ll be interesting to see if they actually do renew this for a follow-up.
Amazon have a pretty good track record with renewals, although mystery shows like this in general have a poor track record across the industry. Everyone is after the next LOST and as we saw during the mid 2000’s, it’s not easy to find one that grips in quite the same way.
With Amazon also juggling Outer Range, a similar slow-paced mystery, it remains to be seen what they do with this one. There is a possibility though that Night Sky could be renewed, depending on how many viewers this manages to attract and how fans react to the end. We’re going out on a limb here and predicting that Night Sky will not be renewed.
There’s going to be some casualties in this small screen landscape and with several mystery boxes on Amazon already – most notably Outer Range and The Wilds – Night Sky could be an unfortunate casualty in this landscape.
We’ll be sure to update this section with more details as they become available.
What we know about season 2 so far:
Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point, given Amazon Prime have not green-lit a sequel. Given the cliffhanger ending and the sheer number of questions this has left unanswered at the end, we’ll have to wait and see what Amazon do with this one.
It’s fair to say that there are a lot of loose threads, including Hannah and the shadowy forces, where Jude comes from, what this alien settlement is, and just why Toni is so important to all this. That’s before mentioning where Byron is, what Franklin and Irene do now that they’re found the city and what happens with Jude and Byron.
For now though, we’re under the impression that these will be frustrating loose threads unanswered, believing there will not be a season 2. However, we will aim to update this page when more information becomes available.
