Lyra’s epic fantasy novel, His Dark Materials, will come to an end in its final chapter, which is currently in the works.
It’s expected that the third and final season will premiere by the end of 2022, based on Philip Pullman’s third novel, The Amber Spyglass.
Dafne Keen, the show’s leading lady, was the hardest-hitting member of the cast to say goodbye to.
By 2020, Keen will be eagerly anticipating her return. “I’m trying not to think about it,” she told Collider. “Because we’ve known each other for a long time, the cast and crew have become my second family. When I think of them, I miss them greatly. Having been there, I can’t wait to return. My co-workers are excited about their vacation, but I am dreading the return of filming.”
So, what’s been going on in the last few years, you ask? Everything you need to know is outlined below.
His Dark Materials Season 3 Potential Release Date: When Will It Air?
The third season of His Dark Materials has yet to receive an official air date.
However, post-production has begun after filming was completed at the end of November 2021.
“It has been an incredible six-year journey through the Worlds of #HisDarkMaterials, but it’s time to close the doors on the final chapter,” the official His Dark Materials account tweeted. Season 3 has come to an end.
As the show began filming in June 2021, the cast shared an image of the first clapperboard.
The BBC and HBO have given the previous two seasons prime time in their winter schedules, launching in November and running through the end of December, just in time for Christmas.
We’d bet on a similar release date in 2022 based on the amount of post-production work, including the CGI required to create every character’s daemons.
The final book’s storey was originally planned to be broken up into two separate seasons, but this was not feasible.
“I was planning on doing it in two parts, but we’re just going to do it as one. “You can’t always get what you want,” executive producer Alex Tranter told Deadline.
“I’m only selfish because I’m greedy. Television’s screen real estate suits me just fine. When it came to the adaptation of The Amber Spyglass into eight episodes, I had my heart set on going on and on and on about how much I loved His Dark Materials and how I wanted to continue making it for the rest of my life. But it turns out that I was completely wrong and admitted my blunder in the process. The only thing I wanted to do was keep going.”
As soon as we get any more definitive answers, we’ll let you know.
His Dark Materials Season 3 Cast: Who’s in It?
In addition to Dafne Keen and Amir Wilson, the BBC has confirmed that Ruth Wilson and Simone Kirby will play Lyra, Mary Malone, Serafina Pekkala, Father MacPhail, and Lord Asriel (James McAvoy).
At the end of season two, Lord Asriel made an appearance in a cameo after being absent for a significant portion of Lyra’s adventures.
It broke Lyra’s heart to find out that the self-centred adventurer she’d always known as her uncle was actually her biological dad.
Jack Thorne, the show’s screenwriter, revealed that James McAvoy’s role in season two was critical to its success, despite the fact that he had vanished.
Executive producer Dan McCulloch and James McAvoy generously gave us a COVID day,” he said in an interview with Radio Times.
To me, that is the most admirable thing about James: that he stood on his feet and shouted at the sky.
Thank you, reviewers, for not spoiling the surprise. “I’m so glad it was kept a secret up to this point, and I’m grateful to the previewers for not giving away any of the plot details.”
Speaking to Radio Times, McAvoy revealed that he was initially overlooked for the role of Lord Asriel in the first season of Game of Thrones. “It was actually very last minute – I happened to be chatting to the casting director, who’s a friend of mine, waxing lyrical about how much I love the books, and then they got let down by whoever else was doing it originally,” he explains.
As a result, she called me and asked, ‘Can you begin on Monday?'” The Friday before that, to be precise. Several people let them down at the last minute, I believe.”
In addition, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje from Suicide Squad, Jamie Ward from The Durrells, Amber Fitzgerald-Woolf from Into the Badlands and Chipo Chung from Into the Badlands have all joined the cast as the rebel angels Balthamos, Baruch, and Xaphania, respectively.
Likewise, Jonathan Aris (Good Omens) and Sian Clifford (Fleabag) will be returning for season three to play the roles of Agent Salmakia and Commander Roke. In the final Pullman book, they are referred to as ‘Gallivespian spies.’
Roger (Lewin Lloyd), a friend of Lyra’s from season one, may also make an appearance.
Even though we wouldn’t bet the farm on Lee Scoresby (Lin-Manuel Miranda), Lord Boreal (Ariyon Bakare), and Colonel John Parry (Andrew Scott) making a return, it feels like they won’t.
Following Helen McCrory’s death in April 2021, it’s not yet clear how the show’s producers will handle the loss of Stelmaria’s voicing.
It hasn’t crossed our minds, according to McAvoy’s admission (via The Times). No one wants to bring up the subject right now, but when we do, someone else will be honoured to fill her shoes, or at the very least her voice steps, because we don’t want to bring it up right now.”
What does Will happen in the Third Season of His Dark Materials?
The third and final book in Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials series, The Amber Spyglass, will be the subject of the upcoming season. Asriel’s fight for the new Heavenly Republic has escalated into an all-out war against the Authority. However, he needs Will’s Subtle Knife to accomplish his goals.
When it comes to adapting Philip Pullman’s novels for television, “The Amber Spyglass is the most gloriously complex of all,” executive producer Jane Tranter said. “But with our world-class creative team in Cardiff, no challenge is too daunting” (via Radio Times).
It is both an epic adventure and a storey of love and truth in this season. The scripts by Jack, Francesca, and Amelia capture the wonder of Philip’s worlds, and we’re thrilled to welcome back our beloved regular cast as well as some exciting newcomers.
Season one of His Dark Materials had already been mapped out by executive producer Dan McCulloch when he started working on the show.
There has been much discussion and analysis of The Amber Spyglass over the past four years, and it is thrilling for me to finally arrive in the many worlds of this incredible work of fiction.
“The end begins,” reads the caption on photos shared by the His Dark Materials Twitter account. “#hisdarkmaterials #theamberspyglass,” he tweeted. It’s not threatening at all…
On The One Show, McAvoy declared, “It’s war.” We declare war on the Kingdom of Heaven at the end of season two, so expect plenty of fistfights and explosions.”
It’s a story about a young girl and a young boy, not the egos of the adults.
To prevent her daughter, Lyra, from fulfilling the prophecy of the witches and acting as Earth’s second Eve, Mrs Coulter has imprisoned Lyra.
Before the season two finale, Jack Thorne told The Beat, “I hope that we walked the line where you can see Mrs Coulter in both ways.” There is a contradiction in her desires, and she hasn’t been able to resolve it yet. “You can see someone who is intent on pursuing power, and you can see someone who is intent on pursuing Lyra.”
When you have an actor like Ruth Wilson, you’re writing on two different levels, he explained. The character of Mrs Coulter from the novel is portrayed by you, as is Ruth Wilson, and I think the two work well together.

The Land of the Dead and a world inhabited by elephant-like creatures known as mulefa should also be explored, as should more information on the angels (or watchers).
Season two also had a moment involving a bench that alluded to a key moment in the third book, hinting at how the series will conclude in the second episode.
