From Chris Pratt’s “The Terminal List” to the continuation of the “Lord of the Rings” series, Amazon has a lot of big projects coming out this year on its streaming service. “Night Sky,” a co-production with Legendary, the studio behind “Godzilla vs Kong” and the “Pacific Rim” trilogy, is also on their list of new content for 2022.
Amazon has been teasing information about “Night Sky” like they’ve been teasing news about their other projects, releasing a release date, cast member names, and narrative tidbits that should get science fiction enthusiasts eager for the eight-episode series.
With renowned programmes like “Upload” and “The Wheel of Time,” Amazon’s streaming service has had success with science fiction narratives in the past. Based on the film’s new, bleak teaser, Josh Brolin’s forthcoming “Outer Range” also looks to have some science fiction themes. The enigmatic programme “Night Sky” will be added to that collection shortly, so here’s all we know about its release date, cast, and premise.
Release Date: What We Know
On May 20, 2022, Night Sky will be available exclusively on Amazon Prime Video. The series will be released in over 240 nations and territories throughout the globe, in addition to the United States. The first season will consist of eight episodes, all of which will be accessible on the release day. For the time being, only time will tell whether or not this series becomes the next major sci-fi sensation.
How Many Night Sky Episodes Are There?
Night Sky is an eight-episode series produced by Holden Miller, alongside showrunner and executive producer Daniel C. Connolly and executive producers Jimmy Miller and Sam Hansen of Mosaic. The first two episodes of Lightyears will be directed and produced by Argentine filmmaker Juan José Campanella. Campanella has previously directed the Academy Award-winning film The Secret In Their Eyes (Best Foreign Language Film), the pilot and numerous television series, including Halt And Catch Fire and Colony.
“Holden and Dan have crafted an ambitious novel, full of fantastical characters who are yet very human. “We’re thrilled to be collaborating with Legendary on yet another fascinating new series, and we can’t wait to see how this team brings this universe to life,” he added. Vernon Sanders is the co-head of Amazon Studios’ television division.
Nick Pepper, President of Legendary Television, remarked, “We are pleased to continue developing our cooperation with Amazon Studios.” “Holden and Dan have led and motivated a group of people to produce this unique and highly moving drama. “We are delighted to share Lightyears with audiences all across the globe.”
The Cast Of The Night Sky
The pairing of J.K. Simmons and Sissy Spacek as Irene and Franklin York is intriguing since it is the first time the two Academy Award winners have worked together on a film (Simmons for Whiplash and Spacek for Coal Miner’s Daughter).
Even though Simmons is most recognised for his Award-winning Academy performance and his part as J. Jonah Jameson in the Spider-Man films (both Maguire and Holland), he has been busy in recent years with roles in Invincible, Being the Ricardos, Goliath, and The Tomorrow War, among others.
Spacek has been working less often in recent years, making watching her even more enjoyable. Homecoming, Castle Rock, and The Old Man and the Gun were among her most recent on-screen appearances (whether on television or in a film) in 2018.
Some of her other prominent roles include Bloodline, The Help, In the Bedroom, and Carrie, to name a few.
The Night Sky ensemble cast also includes Chai Hansen (The Newsreader), Kiah McKirnan (Mare of Easttown), Julieta Zylberberg (The Invisible Look), Roco Hernández, and Adam Bartley (The Newsreader) (Longmire).
How To Watch Night Sky?
Night Sky will be available only on Prime Video as an original, with no other distribution options. Anyone who signs up for Amazon Prime gets instant access to Prime Video as part of their membership.
The Plot Of The Night Sky
“Even though the narrative takes place outside of space and time, Night Sky follows Irene and Franklin York, a couple who discovered a chamber buried in their garden years ago that leads to a weird, abandoned world they’ve never seen before.” They’ve kept their secret hidden since then, but when an intriguing young man enters their lives, the Yorks’ idyllic lifestyle is flipped upside down. Furthermore, the perplexing chamber the group thought they knew turns out to be significantly more than they could have imagined.”
Night Sky seems to arouse a lot of attention, which can generally lead to an exciting watching experience for those interested.
