Amazon’s Night Sky: Plot, Cast, and Everything Else We Know

Posted 2022/04/26 4 0


The next great science fiction series may be on its way. Prime Video’s new thriller Night Sky is set to drop exclusively on the streaming platform next month.

Night Sky is described as a high concept, fantastical adventure with characters that still feel real and human. The series hails from Legendary Entertainment, the same production company behind the similarly high concept Carnival Row, led by Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne. Vernon Sanders, Amazon Studios’ co-head of television, says of the project:

“Holden and Dan have created an ambitious story, one that’s fantastical but filled with utterly human characters. We’re so pleased to team with Legendary on another compelling new series, and we can’t wait to see how this team brings this world to life.”

Notably, rather than filming in a traditional production hub such as L.A. or New York, Night Sky is filming in rural Illinois. Specifically, some filming locations include the towns of Woodstock, Frankfort, Wauconda, and Island Lake. The series was also filmed at Cinespace Film Studios in Chicago.

With the premiere date approaching soon, let’s look at everything we know about Amazon’s upcoming Night Sky. What will the plot revolve around? Who can we expect to see in the cast? When and where can we see it released? And what else should audiences know about the upcoming sci-fi thriller Night Sky?

Plot: What We Know

While we do not have many specific details as of now, we do know the basic plot structure. Night Sky centers on an older married couple named Franklin and Irene York. Many years ago, the couple discovered a secret chamber in their backyard that led to a distant, deserted planet. The Yorks have guarded that secret ever since. Fast-forward to now, when a reported “enigmatic” young man enters the couple’s lives and quickly upends what they thought they knew. The Yorks soon discover that the secret chamber they have guarded all their lives turns out to be so much more than they ever could have imagined.

While giving us an idea of what to expect, this description still leaves much to the imagination, with many unanswered questions. How did that chamber get there, and what is its exact connection to the York family? Who is this enigmatic young man? How exactly will it upend their lives? This description is worded to pique viewers’ interest by revealing just enough about the plot to hook them in.

Cast: What We Know

When the series was first announced, Sissy Spacek was confirmed to play the lead role of Irene York, with Ed O’Neill joining as her husband, Franklin. However, O’Neill later dropped out and was replaced by J.K. Simmons.

In addition to Spacek and Simmons in the lead, Night Sky features a variety of supporting players. The so-called enigmatic young man who forms a bond with Irene, named Jude, is played by Chai Hansen. Julieta Zylberberg is playing Stella, who is described as a single mother living in Argentina who harbors a dark secret. It is currently unknown what her connection will be to the York family. Rocio Hernandez plays Stella’s daughter Toni, who resents her mother and secrets.

Kiah McKirnan is set as Denise, the granddaughter of the Yorks. She looks after her grandparents and seeks validation in her academics after the loss of her father. The Yorks also have a busybody neighbor, Byron, played by Adam Bartley, who convinced himself that the Yorks have a secret and is determined to prove himself right.

The series has also set three prominent recurring roles. Beth Lacke plays Chandra, a former student of Irene York who is unsatisfied with her life and is sent in a new direction after a chance meeting with her old teacher. Stephen Louis Grush is playing Nick, who is socially awkward and eager to impress everyone he meets. He often winds up in bad situations and finds that he has a strange connection to Stella. Cass Bugge is Jeanine, the wife of neighbor Byron. She loves her husband but gets easily frustrated with his endless suspicions about the York family.

These are all the main and recurring cast members that we have confirmed as of now. More significant players will likely be revealed as the series progresses.

Release Date: What We Know

Night Sky will be released exclusively on Amazon Prime Video on May 20, 2022. In addition to its launch in the United States, the series will drop in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide. The first season consists of eight episodes, and all eight will be available immediately on the date of launch. For now, only time will tell if this series becomes the next big sci-fi hit.
