When Does Season 3 Of His Dark Materials Come Out?
Though seasons 1 and 2 came out in November of 2019 and 2020 respectively, it’s improbable that season 3 will follow a similar timeline, because the first two seasons were taken back-to-back. When talking with The Guardian in December, showrunner Jack Thorne revealed that they were aiming to begin filming season 3 following summer, which may mean that new episodes will not be accessible until 2022.
Nevertheless, given the continuing coronavirus pandemic, anything can change. We will make certain to update this post as time gets closer and we learn more info.
Are There Any Season 3 Spoilers Out There?
While we can’t say we know exactly what show authors have in store, we can make an educated guess based on what happens from Philip’s third novel of this His Dark Materials trilogy, The Amber Spyglass. Assuming the script follows the book, angels Baruch (Oliver Monaghan) and Balthamos (Ikay Agu) will provide to help Will to deliver the Subtle Knife to Lord Asriel (James McAvoy). But ultimately, Will will decide that rescuing Lyra from Mrs. Coulter (Ruth Wilson) is much more important. Meanwhile, Asriel will continue to raise the army in his quest to fight the Authority while hoping to receive his hands on the knife.
Lovers can expect to also see new worlds appear in season 3, like the property of the deceased, in which Lyra and Roger (Lewin Lloyd) reunite, along with the world of the mulefa, in which the creatures can spot other sentient and intelligent creatures. What’s more, fans will also likely witness Will and Lyra’s affection for one another grow stronger in the episodes ahead.
Who Will Be In The His Dark Materials Season 3 Cast?
Since the storyline of His Dark Materials revolves around a cast of characters, the show’s leads – Dafne Keen, Amir Wilson, Ruth Wilson, and James McAvoy – are expected to return for season 3.
That said, some cast members may not be front and center in season 3 following the heartbreaking season two finale where Lee Scoresby (Lin-Manuel Miranda), Hester (Cristela Alonzo), John Parry (Andrew Scott), and Sayan (Phoebe Waller-Bridge) all perish. But given that the series deals with the world of the deceased, it is possible for a few of these characters to come back.
Fans must also expect to see more actors come on to play with new characters, including Gallivespian spy Lord Roke along with the angel Metatron.
