When is His Dark Materials season 3 coming out? We provide the release date, trailer, where to watch information, and the total number of episodes for season 3.

Based on the Philip Pullman trilogy of books, His Dark Materials has managed to find a devoted audience that has embraced the TV adaptation of the work. The show was co-produced between Bad Wolf for BBC and New Line Productions for HBO and has had two great seasons so far. It might also be worth noting that production company Bad Wolf is also behind the upcoming season of Doctor Who.

Dafne Keen plays Lyra, an orphan that is searching for her friend that has gone missing. The quest leads to her uncovering a mysterious plot, centering around a mysterious cosmic substance called Dust. The first season had eight episodes, the second has seven episodes. It seems that fan expectation for this third and we think final season is high, and quite rightly so, as the first two seasons received pretty much universal praise. So, it has to be said that a third season was vital and expected, so let’s check and see what the future of His Dark Materials has in store.

Is there a 3rd season of His Dark Materials?

Good news for fans of this series, as season three has been announced. The author produced three novels, so it is heartening to learn that there will be three seasons of this show. The third novel was entitled The Amber Spyglass, and it seems that the decision to commission a final season was made back in 2020 due to the positive reaction the show had received for its previous outings. Season 3 will follow from the cliffhanger ending of season 2.

Lyra has been abducted by her mother, Will is searching for her, and their stories look set to reach a conclusion. With Asriel working to establish The New Republic of Heaven, he needs to obtain The Subtle Knife, and Will is the key to that goal. Meanwhile, the revolution against The Authority is gaining strength, and conflict is imminent. Fans should expect a third season that is darker and more demanding, as the trilogy hurtles to a conclusion.
