Shattering our collective dreams also One day owning a comfortable retirement home Which just so happens to feature a portal of extra dimensions to a faraway world, Amazon announced this week that it has canceled its recent sci-fi drama. night sky After one season. as such Limit Notesthe series starred JK Simmons and Sissy Spacek as an older couple whose lives become complicated, first through the aforementioned portal (which they find under their roof, as one would), then the mysterious young man who appeared near him one day.
The news of the cancellation will come as disappointing on a number of levels, the most direct of which is because, hey, you can’t get much of a chance to see Simmons and Spacek play with each other like this. but also: night sky It’s a puzzle box show where only parts of the puzzle have been revealed (very slowly), and now anyone invested in the York family story has to embrace it. obscurity.
In addition to Spacek and Simmons, the series (created by Holden Miller and Daniel C. Connolly) Chai Hansen, Adam Bartley, Julieta Zilberberg, and others are involved in the plot surrounding the magical York Space Slot. This is an excerpt from Lauren Schwall’s review of the series for us From its beginning in May:
The good news: night sky Meticulously drawn, every letter and detail is intricately woven together. The little things – a white lie, a forgotten business card – that seem insignificant at the moment become very important episodes later. The show seems a bit like watching someone do puzzles from the outside in; When an urgent question gets an answer, a new question pops up in its place.
Humble news: puzzles at their center are made night sky Convincing and a bit annoying. We always want to know more, and the tension is often nicely rendered, but sometimes the information is withheld for what seems to be no reason, and the other plot points laughably stop by chance. If that sounds vague, know that the no spoilers list to review this show is a mile long.
