A Netflix Original Series from the Jim Henson Company and visionary
director Louis Leterrier, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance
premieres August 30.
The second season of Netflix’s “Mindhunter” is headed our way on August 16th, with the new season exploring the “Atlanta child murders,” a series of real-life killings between 1979-1981. At least 28 African American children, teenagers, and adults were killed during that time.
The series kicked off in Blood of Elves and then continued with 7 more books, though some of them take place in the past before Blood of Elves. If you want the earliest story, you’ll need to check out The Last Wish, though the series will also draw a bit from the hit games as well, including The Witcher: Wild Hunt, which revolved around Ciri, someone Geralt trained and became like a daughter to him.
The show is once again set on the world of Thra and concerns three Gelflings who discover the horrifying secret behind the Skeksis’ power and set out on an epic journey to ignite the fires of rebellion and save their world.
The 10-episode show takes place years before the events of Jim Henson’s 1982 puppeteer masterpiece. The trailer returns us to the world of Thra, a place filled with the Gelfing, Skeksis, and Mystics, but it’s a world in decay for the Crystal of Truth that lies at the heart of Thra is damaged and corrupted by Skeksis, spreading a sickness across the land.
