His Dark Materials Season 2:Adapted from Philip Pullman’s popular novel trilogy, the joint HBO-BBC venture “His Dark Materials” premiered its 1st Season in 2019, and quickly rose to become one of the most popular and talked-about shows of the whole year.
The 2nd Season was renewed even before the show officially premiered, leaving fans assured that the story of Lyra Belacqua, a young woman with an enormous destiny, would continue with another season. Here’s everything you need to know.
Ever since the 1st Season of His Dark Materials premiered in December 2019, fans have been expecting the story to continue. Unfortunately, with major film and television productions postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the release of the show’s 2nd Season will need to wait a little longer. As of now, we don’t have a particular date. However, there’s a good chance that Season 2 of His Dark Materials will be out in November this year.
We will see all the actors from Season 1 of His Dark Materials reprise their roles in Season 2. The cast for the 2nd Season is as follows – Dafne Keen as Lyra Belacqua, Andrew Scott as Colonel John Parry, Ruth Wilson as Marisa Coulter, James McAvoy as Lord Asriel, James Cosmo as Farder Coram, Ariyon Bakare as Lord Boreal, Lin-Manuel Miranda as Lee Scoresby and Clarke Peters as The Master.
As of now, the plot for Season 2 hasn’t been revealed by the creators. However, we know that Season 2 of His Dark Materials will be based on ‘The Subtle Knife’, Pullman’s second book in the original trilogy. So most of the storyline from the novel is going to be picked up again on screen. Season 1 already played around with the narrative, but we can still expect Season 2 to have the potential to surprise their fans. Still, we are absolutely certain that Parry will join Lyra in Cittàgazze at some point, as the duo move between their own worlds and the other.
