BBC and HBO are again coming together for the second season of ” His Dark Materials. ” After the success of the first season, to the delight of the fans, it is being renewed. The second season has already been shot as per the two networks.
When will Second season Air ?
Despite knowing that all eight episodes of Season 2 have already been filmed, it is yet unclear when it shall be aired. Though looking at the release date of the first season, I guess we are all looking at the November window for the release.

As per the books, most of the cast from the first season will continue: Dafne Keen as Lyra Belacqua, Ruth Wilson as Marisa Coulter, Clarke Peters as The Master, James Cosmo as Farder Coram, Ariyon Bakare as Lord Boreal, James McAvoy as Lord Asriel, Lin-Manuel Miranda as Lee Scoresby.
Fleabag star Andrew Scott will join the show in season two. He’ll be playing Colonel John Parry, the globe-trotting father of Will Parry. The boy who will play an increasingly integral role in future episodes alongside Lyra.
Season 2 Plot – What will it be about?
As per Ruth Wilson :
it’s bigger, better, darker. A lot darker. Three words to describe it? I’d say adventure, bravery… and knives.
” it’s bigger, better, darker. A lot darker. Three words to describe it? I’d say adventure, bravery… and knives.” This statement seems to have stirred a lot of excitement among the fans of the show.
Season two will adapt The Subtle Knife, Pullman’s second book in the original trilogy. We’re almost sure that Will Parry will join Lyra in Cittàgazze at some point in the story. The two would soon realize from moving between their worlds the apocalyptic – consequences of Asriel’s discoveries about the nature of Dust. We also assume that the Magisterium will play an even more significant role in season two than so far, further strengthing his role in His Dark Materials.
Trailer – When is it coming out?
As of yet, no trailer has been released. The containers are bound to come once a final air date is set. Since nothing about the release has officially been decided yet, nothing can be said about when the trailer will drop off. Let’s all wait for BBC and HBO to do cast their magical spell on its viewers as they usually do.
