It's the news we've all been waiting for - His Dark Materials has finally got a season two release date and there's really not that long to wait.

According to its social media accounts, fans will be able to return to Philip Pullman's cherished fantasy worlds on 16th November in the US, but if it follows the example of the first season, it should hit screens in the UK the Sunday before HBO Max - Sunday 15th November.

Based on Pullman's second book, A Subtle Knife, filming was luckily complete before the international coronavirus shutdown occurred in late March, so at least this gives us something to look forward to!

One episode that was cut though was a stand-alone featuring James McAvoy as Lord Asriel, due to the fact filming had just started when lockdown happened.

Season Two of 'His Dark Materials' is hitting screens next month (

For those who need a season one recap, Lyra (Dafne Keen) followed Lord Asriel into a new world right at the end, just as a new character Will (Amir Wilson) crossed into another universe.

In A Subtle Knife, Lyra and Will venture into a town called Cittagazze, with many of the original season's characters trying desperately to track her down.

Luther's Ruth Wilson will return as the terrifying Mrs Coulter, alongside fellow OGs Lin Manuel-Miranda as aeronaut Lee Scoresby, Ruta Gedmintas as witch queen Serafina Pekkala and Joe Tandberg and Helen McCrory has the voice of armoured bear lorek Byrnison and Lord Asriel's demon Stelmaria.

James McAvoy was cut from season two after filming was shut down (

There will be some new cast members joining the crew, too, including Terence Stamp (Get Smart), Jade Anouka (Turn Up Charlie), Simone Kirby (Peaky Blinders) and Fleabag's Phoebe Waller-Bridge as the voice of the daemon belonging to John Parry, played by Andrew Scott.

We can't wait for this!

Tyla has contacted the BBC to confirm the UK premiere date.
