“His Dark Materials Season 2”: Will fans see more of James McAvoy and Andrew Scott’s characters? Find out here!

His Dark Materials is a British tv series. The BBC series is based on Philip Pullman’s iconic fantasy novel series of the same name. It was adapted for television by Jack Thorne for BBC and HBO. The series debuted in November 2019 and ran till December that year. Additionally, the first season contains eight episodes. The fantasy drama was renewed for a second season even before the series premiered.

Fans have been hoping for a faithful adaptation of the novel trilogy for a long time. But, 2007’s The Golden Compass failed to match up to expectations. However, with the series, BBC delivered on fans’ expectations. The series became a success among the viewers, as well as the critics. The show received acclaim for the acting performances and the complexity of the story.

His Dark Materials Season 2: Release date

Regarding the release date, initial reports suggest that season two would hit the screens in November this year. Furthermore, filming of the series had mostly completed before the release of season one. Also, the post-production work is currently ongoing. However, the current circumstances have certainly affected work on the new season. Anyhow, for now, we assume season two to keep the initial release date.

His Dark Materials Season 2: Possible cast

The fantasy mystery series boasted a strong cast of actors in the first season. And in the upcoming season, we expect more of the same. Dafne Keen of the ‘Logan’ fame will certainly return as the protagonist, Lyra Belacqua. In addition, James McAvoy will be reprising the role of Lord Asriel. Other actors such as,

  • Ruth Wilson portraying Marisa Coulter
  • Amir Wilson playing as Will Parry
  • Ruta Gedmintas appearing as Serafina Pekkala… etc

And of course, Joe Tandberg will return to voice Lorek Byrnison. Furthermore, fans will get to see more of Andrew Scott Playing Colonel John Parry in the new season.

His Dark Materials Season 2: Expected plot

We can now confirm that season two will be based on the second book in the trilogy. Although the show follows the novels closely, we assume some small alterations will be made. Furthermore, we expect the new season to be set in Cittagazze. The ramifications of Lord Asriel’s discoveries will also be explored. Also, we assume that the Magisterium will play a more prominent part in the next season.

His Dark Materials Season 2: Storyline

The series is set in a fictional universe where manifestations of human souls known as Daemons exist. The story follows Lyra Belacque, an orphan. She learns a dangerous secret and sets out on a journey to find her missing friend. Moreover, she learns the mysteries of a substance called Dust. In addition, the story takes place in a reality that has more than one world. And Lyra must go through these worlds to achieve her mission.
