His Dark Materials Season Two Gets November Release Date

His Dark Materials Season Two Gets November Release Date

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.

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.
