ABC and BBC are working together to renew ‘His Dark Materials’ for a third and final season. The seasons follow a book trilogy written by Phillip Pullman. This third season will be modeled after his third book ‘The Amber Spyglass’. It will follow a boy(Amir Wilson) and a girl(Dafne Keen) from different worlds who meet one another in an abandoned city. Other co-stars include Lin-Manuel Miranda, Terence Stamp, Jade Anouka, Simone Kirby, Ruth Wilson, Ariyon Bakare, Andrew Scott, Will Keen, and Ruta Gedmintas.
The BBC Drama commissioning editor in Wales, Ben Irving talked about the new season saying, “Fans of Phillip Pullman’s incredible books, and newcomers alike, have been enthralled by adventuring with Lyra and Will through multiple worlds. We are thrilled that they will be able to continue their journey in a third series of this beautifully realized drama. Our thanks to our partners at HBO and the dedicated creative team at Bad Wolf for making a landmark series that will continue to be watched and enjoyed on the BBC for years to come.”
