Night Sky Season 1 Summary
Season 1 of Night Sky follows young sweethearts Irene (portrayed by Sissy Spacek) and Franklin (portrayed by JK Simmons) as they navigate their final years in the town of Farnsworth, Illinois. While their lives seem normal, if a bit dull, from the outside, Irene and Franklin harbor a secret portal to another planet in their outdoor shed.
The portal referred to as a chamberShe’s been taking Irene and Franklin to “visit the stars” since they found it, a day after her only son, Michael, committed suicide. Irene, who has struggled with depression since her fall a year ago, is particularly attached to the Chamber.
One night, after writing a suicide note to Franklin, Irene prepares to go through the door in the chamber that leads to the planet beyond. Unsure whether she will live or die, Irene is about to open the door She is interrupted by a young, injured man who somehow found his way in.
After waking a suspicious Franklin and nursing the mystery man back to health, Irene is convinced his arrival is a mystery she must solve. Jude (portrayed by Chai Hansen), the young man from the portal, is hide a lot from Irene and Franklin, most importantly that he’s running away from someone.
Meanwhile, Stella and her daughter Toni live around the world on a remote piece of land in the wilderness with a small house and a chapel. While Toni doesn’t understand why she can’t grow up like other girls her age, Stella does her best to protect her from her family’s cursed responsibilities.
That choice is taken away from her when Cornelious, a ruthless hunter, shows up with a job for both of them. Toni, who has never been away from home, embarks on a journey that will show her the gruesome truth of her heritage and exactly what her mother has been hiding.
Soon, Irene and Franklin’s mystery turns into something much bigger than they ever imagined. Hunters from all over the world are looking for Jude, while searching for his father in Illinois. Byron, Franklin and Irene’s nosy neighbor, becomes a confidant and partner for Franklin.
By the season one finale, Denise, Irene and Franklin’s granddaughter, is ready to solve the mystery. Meanwhile, the ties that bind Stella and Toni’s fate to Jude’s are growing stronger, with dangerous consequences for all involved.
Night Sky season 1 finale
In the Night Sky season one finale, Denise makes the decision to leave her life in Chicago and her life in Farnsworth behind and instead journey through the Vault with Jude to find his father. After reconciling with Irene over her death at Michael’s, Denise is finally ready to find her own path.
With Denise gone, Irene and Franklin finally take their first steps out of the chamber. Franklin disembarks in a makeshift spacesuit, convinced that the planet’s air must be toxic. He goes in search of Byron, who disappeared when he and Franklin entered the chamber.
Instead, Franklin finds the man Jude stabbed to death before fleeing the planet. As his spacesuit’s oxygen begins to fail, he calls out to Irene before passing out. Irene, not wanting to let Franklin die alone on a barren planet, comes to the surface to join him without a suit.
The air on the planet turns out to be entirely breathable, and Irene frees Franklin from his space helmet so he can breathe. As they stand together on the surface, Irene discovers a vast man-made city, built into beautiful towering formations and clearly not abandoned.
Back in Illinois, Stella and Toni flee their guardian duties while Cornelious is taped and shackled in the back of a van. It appears they escaped when Hannah, the suspicious woman who claimed to know Jude’s father, intercepts them and runs off the road.
Night Sky Season 2, Casting, Air Date and Plot Speculations
The Night Sky finale, while exciting, left almost as many questions as the beginning.
We finally got to see a little more of the supposedly desolate planet, huh seems a little more populated than Jude would like Irene and Franklin to believe. Since the air on the planet is safe for humans, does that mean the humans in the space city are humans too?
Also, Byron is still missing. Now that we’ve seen the city it’s more likely that he traveled there rather than dying on the surface, but we still have no idea where he is. Byron’s wife, poor long-suffering Janine, began to worry a little in the season finale.
Stella and Toni, who against all odds managed to subdue Cornelious and avoid Jude’s murder, have been captured by the mysterious ex-renegade Hannah. At this point it seems safe to assume that renegades are the ones running away from the city on the planet, although we don’t know for sure.
If we get a second season of Night Sky, the main actors would presumably continue their roles. Irene, Franklin, Stella, Toni, Jude, and Denise all have unfinished storylines that need expanding. Additionally, newcomers Hannah (Sonya Walger) and her right-hand man Paul (Ian Owens) would hopefully reprise their roles as well.
Night Sky, will there be a second season?
At the time of writing this article, Amazon has not yet renewed or canceled Night Sky. Since the first series was released on May 20, 2022, it will likely be a while before we hear from Amazon officials about a second series.
It can be quite difficult to tell whether or not an Amazon series is likely to be renewed, especially when it’s brand new to the platform. Other popular semi-new Amazon productions like the wild boys and uploadhave been renewed for several seasons, although that news has often come out rather slowly.
So far, public reaction to Night Sky has been fairly positive, with a 75% rating on the Tomatometer and an 85% audience rating. Viewers have both praised Sissy Spacek and JK Simmons for their performances and noted the novelty of an older couple as leads.
If you want Night Sky Season 2, I recommend watching it with friends and family, participating in discussions about the show on social channels, and recommending the show to others who might enjoy it. If enough viewers are interested, Amazon is more likely to extend it.
