There were plans for more?

Yeah, I always figured it was a one season thing from the get go. We already know how it ends, since it has to lead into the movie eventually.

I think they said they had storyline for at least another season or two. It would be great if HBO Max or someone else picked this up. Netflix cancels so many shows that doesn't seem to be a real sign of issues with quality. It got great reviews and even won an Emmy!

Netflix is all about churn, that's why things have shifted a bit and we probably will never see more than 3 seasons of most of their shows.  They want a steady stream of new content to keep people from leaving.  I guess with Dark Crystal the views and/or new subs at launch didn't impress them enough vs. the high production costs. 

Production costs must be crazy high, puppeteers, voice actors, CG animators, complicated sets to film in.

Even though I enjoyed watching it I have not gone back to rewatch much, only a couple of episodes did I watch twice.  That's another metric Netflix uses.

I just found out there won't be a season 2 of Daybreak  :(  Shame, that was a good show that really didn't get the exposure it deserved.
