It needs to hurry up and be time for Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance to hit Netflix already! But we would also totally settle for a trailer in the meantime.

The upcoming Netflix 10-episode series just started an Instagram account which happens to have three new images of Skeksis, so we're hoping a trailer isn't that far off.

A familiar face from the first Dark Crystal, wise woman Aughra, will also appear in this new series, and will be voiced by Donna Kimball (The Happytime Murders).

Netflix said in a statement about the series:

"To match the stunning visual world of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, we knew we had to entice some incredible voice talent to add dimension to the exquisite artistry of the puppeteers who bring the characters to life.  I am proud to say that this may be one of the finest casts assembled from the world's favorite TV shows and movies, and I am now even more excited for fans to come back to Thra with us, and for new viewers to discover this world for the very first time."

The series will hit Netflix on Friday, August 30th 2019.
