It will soon be time to conclude His Dark Materials trilogy. The Amber Spyglass, the third novel in author Phillip Pullman’s trilogy of the same name, will be adapted for the third season of the blockbuster BBC/HBO series.
Series three began filming earlier in 2021, with actor James McAvoy confirming in June that following some COVID-related delays, filming had resumed in Wales. “Right now, we’re doing it down in Wales,” he told BBC Breakfast.
“I’ll be back in a couple of hours to do a major set-piece with my snow leopard Stelmaria, and I’m looking forward to returning for season three.” However, we can officially report that filming for the third season has concluded.
On November 26, the show’s official Twitter feed wrote: “It’s been an extraordinary six years of travel through the Worlds of His Dark Materials, but the last chapter has come to an end. Season 3 has come to an end.

The Release Date for the Third Season of His Dark Materials Has Been Set.
Season 3 of His Dark Materials will premiere in the UK in 2022 on BBC One and BBC iPlayer. The BBC has stated that the final series will run in 2022, although because of the significant VFX necessary for the size of the plot, it is unlikely to air until Autumn.
This implies there will be a significantly longer gap between seasons one and two, which aired in autumn 2019 and autumn 2020, respectively.
James McAvoy had hinted only a week before the BBC announcement that it may arrive a bit early, potentially in January of the following year, just a few months “late” – but it appears that the Lord Asriel star was being excessively hopeful.

” In other news, it appears like season three will be limited to eight episodes, despite executive producer Jane Tranter’s prior request for a fourth season to adequately tell the entire tale.
Tranter told Deadline, “I intended to split it in two, but we’re doing it in one.” “It’s not always possible to get what you desire.” The Amber Spyglass is appropriately adapted into eight episodes, and I humbly accept I was absolutely incorrect.

After missing the most of the season two, Joe Tandberg’s bear-king Iorek Byrnison is expected to return for a greater role. Lord Asriel in His Dark Materials, James McAvoy as Lord Asriel
Despite the character’s death, the season two conclusion teases a comeback for season one’s Lewin Lloyd (who portrayed Lyra’s buddy Roger).
Following each of their characters’ deaths in season two, series regulars Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ariyon Bakare, and Andrew Scott are apparently not returning — but Roger’s reappearance does imply that death isn’t necessarily the end of the world of His Dark Materials.
Of course, The Amber Spyglass introduces several important new characters (including numerous voice parts) who will need to be introduced, and the BBC revealed some new cast members who will be bringing these characters to life in June 2021.
Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Game of Thrones) plays Commander Ogunwe, Jamie Ward (The Durrels) plays Father Gomez, and Amber Fitzgerald-Woolf plays Ama. The rebel angels Balthamos, Baruch.
Xaphania are played by Kobna Holdbrook-Smith (Mary Poppins Returns), Simon Harrison (Endeavour), and Chipo Chung (Into the Badlands). And, as McAvoy confirmed to The Times, the loss of actor Helen McCrory means that her voice part in the series (as Lord Asriel’s demon Stelmaria) is likely to be recreated.
“We haven’t considered it,” he replied. “I don’t believe we want to talk about it right now, but when we do, someone else will be honored to take her place, if not in her footsteps, then in her voicesteps.”
The Narrative of the Third Season of His Dark Materials
Because it’s based on a novel that’s been out for decades, we already have a fairly clear notion of what will happen in season three of His Dark Materials.
Lord Asriel’s struggle against religious oppression (and the principal figure of The Authority at its top) escalates in The Amber Spyglass, drawing in creatures and forces from several planets and even summoning certain angels to his side.
Meanwhile, Lyra is kidnapped by Mrs Coulter as Will hunts for her (along with two angels who wish to deliver him to Asriel), and Mary Malone enters a new planet to learn more about Dust from Mulefa creatures, where she is hunted by a Magisterium assassin.
Is There a Trailer for Season 3 of His Dark Materials?
Given that the series has just recently wrapped production, it’s not surprising that the BBC has yet to release a trailer – but we’ll keep this page updated as teasers begin to come.
