Prime Video has announced that the highly anticipated Amazon Original series Night Sky will premiere all eight episodes exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide on Friday, May 20, 2022.
Night Sky (formerly titled Lightyears) is a new Sci Fi show from Legendary Television, starring Academy Award winner Sissy Spacek (The Old Man and The Gun) and Academy Award winner J.K. Simmons (Being the Ricardos).
Spanning space and time, Night Sky follows Irene (Spacek) and Franklin York (Simmons), a couple who, years ago, discovered a chamber buried in their backyard which inexplicably leads to a strange, deserted planet. They’ve carefully guarded their secret ever since, but when an enigmatic young man (Chai Hansen, The Newsreader) enters their lives, the Yorks’ quiet existence is quickly upended…and the mystifying chamber they thought they knew so well turns out to be much more than they could ever have imagined.
…[the story is about] a couple who, years ago, discovered a chamber buried in their backyard which inexplicably leads to a strange, deserted planet.
Night Sky is a co-production of Amazon Studios and Legendary Television (Carnival Row, Paper Girls) and is written and co-executive produced by Holden Miller, with Daniel C. Connolly serving as showrunner and executive producer. Mosaic’s Jimmy Miller and Sam Hansen serve as executive producers, along with Emmy and BAFTA Award-winner Philip Martin.
