Night Sky release date and storyline preview

Night Sky landed on Amazon Prime Video on Friday 20th May 2022.

Starring JK Simmons and Sissy Spacek, the out-of-this-world sci-fi series tells the story of Franklin and Irene York, a couple who years ago discovered a mysterious chamber buried in their backyard and inexplicably became one strange and deserted planet.

The Yorks have guarded the chamber closely ever since, but when a mysterious young man enters their lives, the couple’s quiet lives are turned upside down and the chamber they thought they knew so well turns out to be something much more than they could ever have imagined.

How many episodes are there in Night Sky?

Night Sky consists of a total of eight episodes.

And unlike Amazon’s recent series, The Outer Range, all eight chapters of Night Sky were released on the platform at once, rather than weekly.

Episodes are between 53 and 56 minutes long, meaning the series has a total running time of 433 minutes (or seven hours and 13 minutes), giving fans plenty of content to binge-watch.

The titles of all eight episodes and their running times are as follows:

  1. To the Stars | 56 minutes
  2. La Capilla | 54 minutes
  3. The Caretaker | 54 minutes
  4. Boilermakers | 55 minutes
  5. driving lessons | 53 minutes
  6. Dear Franklin | 54 minutes
  7. Diving in the lake | 54 minutes
  8. Compensation | 53 minutes

Chances for season 2 [spoilers]

Beyond the first eight episodes, the fate of Night Sky remains up in the air as Amazon Prime Video has yet to renew the sci-fi series.

However, the final episode of the debut season leaves a lot of questions unanswered, and so if there’s demand for Season 2, there’s a good chance the show will return for more.

The last scene of the first part of Night Sky reveals that Franklin and Irene’s supposedly deserted planet is not as empty as they first thought.

Not only can they survive in the planet’s atmosphere, but there’s a more human-looking town not far from their lair, though shielded by a strange egg-like structure.

Is this really another planet the Yorks found, or could it be Earth in the distant future? Only a second season can answer that.
