The end is near. His Dark Materials has started production on the third and final season of the show, based on the third novel in the His Dark Materials book series, by Philip Pullman. The season will be based on the third book in the series, The Amber Spyglass, and is set to have eight episodes.
Season three will see “Will” (Amir Wilson), the bearer of The Subtle Knife, and “Lyra” (Dafne Keen), the prophesied child, travel through multiple worlds to find and protect each other. Returning cast include Dafne Keen as “Lyra,” Amir Wilson as “Will,” Ruth Wilson as “Mrs. Coulter,” Simone Kirby as Mary Malone,” Will Keen as “Father President McPhail,” Jade Anouka as “Ruta Skadi,” Ruta Gedminstas as “Serafina Pekkala” and James McAvoy as “Lord Asriel.”
Dan McCulloch, executive producer of the show shared that: “The moment we started season one of HIS DARK MATERIALS, we had mapped out all three novels to know the direction in which where we were heading. Every detail and character within this incredible work of fiction has been analyzed and discussed for four years now, and to finally arrive in the many worlds of ‘The Amber Spyglass’ is thrilling.”
We couldn’t agree more.
His Dark Materials is produced by Bad Wolf in association with New Line Cinema for BBC One and HBO.
