Lyra’s fantastical story will undoubtedly reach a spectacular end in the third season of His Dark Materials.
Based on the third book of Philip Pullman, The Amber Spyglass, the third and final season should air by the end of 2022. The BBC has not yet announced an official release date.
It was a devastating farewell for the cast, especially for the leading actress, Dafne Keen. She told Collider in December 2020, “I’m trying not to think about it because I think a lot, and I’m really, really looking forward to returning.”
“Since I’ve known them for several years, the people on set have become my second family. They have witnessed my maturation, and I miss them dearly. I cannot wait to return. People say, “I can’t wait for the vacation,” but I cannot wait to return to filmmaking.”
Here is all you need to know about the third season of His Dark Materials.
His Dark Materials season 3 release date: When will it air?
There is currently no confirmed premiere date for His Dark Materials season 3. Nevertheless, it is now in post-production following the conclusion of filming at the end of November 2021.
The official His Dark Materials Twitter account wrote, “It has been a fantastic six-year voyage through the Worlds of #HisDarkMaterials, but now it is time to shut the last chapter. The conclusion of Season 3.”
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.

His Dark Materials season 3 cast: Who is coming back?
Lyra (Dafne Keen), Will (Amir Wilson), Mrs. Coulter (Ruth Wilson), Mary Malone (Simone Kirby), Serafina Pekkala (Ruta Gedmints), Father MacPhail (Will Keen), and Lord Asriel will all appear, according to the BBC (James McAvoy).
Still, the cast is yet to confirm, so the above members will be replaced by anyone.
His Dark Materials season 3 Plot
The forthcoming season is based on The Amber Spyglass, the third and final novel in Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials series.
As the revolt against the Authority escalates into open conflict, Asriel works to establish the new Republic of Heaven. To complete his objectives, however, he requires the Subtle Knife, which is presently in Will’s possession.
“The Amber Spyglass is the most challenging of Philip Pullman’s novels to adapt for television, but our world-class creative team in Cardiff is up to any task,” Tranter told Radio Times.
“This season is both an epic quest and love and truth-centered tale. Jack, Francesca, and Amelia’s scripts capture the brilliance of Philip’s universes, and we are joined by some amazing new talent in addition to our much-loved original ensemble.”

The His Dark Materials Twitter account has published a series of photographs with the captions: “The end begins. His black ingredients are revealed by the amber spyglass.” None whatsoever…
Mrs. Coulter has caught Lyra because she is determined to prevent her from fulfilling the witches’ prophecy and saving mankind by becoming the second Eve.
In a conversation with The Beat before the season two finale, Jack Thorne remarked of the character Mrs. Coulter, “I hope we walked the line where you can see her in two ways.”
“You can see someone who is set on seeking power and someone who is intent on pursuing Lyra. There is a contradiction inside her as to what she actually desires, and she has not yet answered that issue.”
We may also anticipate learning more about the angels (or watchers) and being transported to other planets, like the Land of the Dead and a place inhabited by an elephant-like mulefa.
And in the second episode of the second season, there was a scene involving a certain bench that alluded to a major event in the third book, so revealing how the series will conclude.
We get into these topics and more in this article, so load your boots, guys.
As is typical of third seasons (hello Buffy, Angel, and, yeah, Friends), viewers should anticipate a deeper and darker journey. Wilson told Radio Times that the album is much darker and sadder.
“It is far more emotional. I believe it was more difficult to film. There is a great deal more going on, and I believe the introduction of a great deal more characters. There is plenty to look forward to.”
When asked to characterize the season using only three words, he said, “love, loss, and death.” It… does not seem very entertaining.
When will the His Dark Materials season 3 trailer be available?
Even though production has concluded, the first trailer for His Dark Materials season three has not yet been released. If it does not premiere until late 2022, we may have to wait as well.
However, we’ll let you know as soon as we learn more!
The first and second seasons of His Dark Materials are currently streaming on BBC iPlayer.
