His Dark Materials is coming back for its third and final season. The show is adapted from Sir Philip Pullman’s trilogy. The third season will be adapted from the final book-‘The Amber Spyglass’. The series belongs to the adventure, mystery and fantasy genre. A multiverse where people can travel from one world to another.
The series revolves around Lyra, an orphan studying at Jordan College, Oxford. Lyra comes across a deep and mysterious secret that involves Marisa Coulter and Lord Asriel Belacqua. Her friend goes missing. Eventually, she comes across a set of kidnappings occuring on the premises. After that, she finds out about a mysterious Dust which is causing the disappearances.
Season 3 will be about a witch’s prophecy that links Lyra to William. Therefore there is a romance awaiting in this season. Although we have already seen the other worldly creatures, daemons, this season there are new beings. This season will also see new characters maybe.
The announcement for renewal of His Dark Materials was made in December 2020. The first two seasons came out back to back in 2019 and 2020 respectively. However, writer Jack Thorne has eliminated the possibility of a 2021 release. The show seems to be on a back foot right now as scripts are not ready. The restrictions due to the pandemic will be a hurdle. Production will probably start in the spring of 2021.
The supposed cast will be:
- Ruth Wilson as Marisa Coulter (can’t wait to watch her!)
- Dafne Keen as Lyra Belacqua
- James McAvoy as Lord Asriel Belacqua
- Ruta Gedmintas as Serafina Pekkala
- Amir Wilson as Will Parry
- Gary Lewis as Thorold who is Asriel’s assistant
- Nina Sosanya as Elaine Parry
- Jade Anouka as Ruta Skadi
- Sean Gilder as Father Graves
- Simon Kirby as Dr. Mary Malone
