Amazon Prime’s Night Sky 2022: Release Date, Synopsis, Cast and Trailer

In May, Night Sky, a fresh new sci-fi drama starring J.K. Simmons and Sissy Spacek, will be released on Amazon Prime Video. The series will be available to watch globally on the streaming service.

It is planned that the Academy Award-winners would portray a couple who discover a doorway to an abandoned planet in their background in the course of their relationship. You've probably heard the expression “location, location, location” when it comes to real estate.

Night Sky is the creation of Holden Miller's first scripted television series. However, the show is overseen by Daniel C. Connolly, who has previously worked on Longmire, Into the Badlands, and The Son, among other projects.

As part of Prime Video's busy 2022 schedule, which includes another science fiction program in Outer Range and the return of its smash series The Boys for its third season this summer, the new series is part of the company's active 2022 roster.

However, we'll concentrate on Night Sky in this article, so keep reading to find out everything you need to know about the new series.

Night Sky: Release Date

Night Sky will be accessible on Amazon Prime Video on May 20 in more than 240 countries and territories where the service is currently available (including the US and UK). Prime Video has announced that all eight episodes of the new series will be available on May 20, allowing users to watch them all in one sitting if they so want.

Night Sky: Trailer

On April 22, Prime Video published the official trailer for Night Sky, which you can see below. This trailer demonstrates how Simmons and Spacek's friendship will act as the story's core as they attempt to safeguard and better comprehend the tremendous mystery that has been revealed in their backyard.

However, several other possibly dubious characters may be coming to investigate the situation for themselves.


Night Sky: Plot

The following is the official summary for Night Sky, which can be seen on Prime Video:

“Even though the story takes place beyond space and time, Night Sky follows Irene and Franklin York, a couple who years ago found a chamber buried in their backyard that leads to a strange, abandoned the planet they have never seen before. Since then, they've kept their secret a closely guarded secret, but when an enigmatic young man enters their life, the Yorks' peaceful existence is abruptly turned upside down… Furthermore, the puzzling chamber that the group believed they were familiar with turns out far more than they could have ever expected.”

It certainly sounds like there will be a lot of curiosity with Night Sky, which can usually make for an entertaining viewing experience for those interested.

Night Sky: Cast

The coupling of J.K. Simmons and Sissy Spacek as the principal couple Irene and Franklin York is compelling since it marks the first time the two Academy Award winners (Simmons for Whiplash and Spacek for Coal Miner's Daughter) have collaborated on a project.

Even though Simmons is best known for his Award-winning Academy performance and his role as J. Jonah Jameson in the Spider-Man films (both Maguire and Holland), he has been swamped in recent years, including several films that have only been available on Prime Video, such as Invincible, Being the Ricardos, Goliath, and The Tomorrow War, among others.

Spacek has worked less regularly in recent years, which makes seeing her an even more pleasant experience. Her most recent on-screen performances (whether on television or in a film) were in 2018, with roles in Homecoming, Castle Rock, and The Old Man and the Gun.

Her other well-known parts include Bloodline, The Help, In the Bedroom, and Carrie, some of her different notable roles.

Chai Hansen (The Newsreader), Kiah McKirnan (Mare of Easttown), Julieta Zylberberg (The Invisible Look), Roco Hernández (La cada), and Adam Bartley (The Newsreader) are also part of the Night Sky ensemble cast (Longmire).
