Snuggle up with your dæmon this fall for the second season of His Dark Materials on HBO.
Debuting this November, the second season of His Dark Materials begins after Lord Asriel has opened a bridge to a new world, and, distraught over the death of her best friend, Lyra follows Asriel into the unknown. In a strange and mysterious abandoned city she meets Will, a boy from our world who is also running from a troubled past. Lyra and Will learn their destinies are tied to reuniting Will with his father but find their path is constantly thwarted as a war begins to brew around them. Meanwhile, Mrs. Coulter searches for Lyra, determined to bring her home by any means necessary.
His Dark Materials is produced by BBC and HBO in partnership and they both released teasers today containing different material.
Watch the teaser trailers below!
Season two series regulars include Dafne Keen, Ruth Wilson, Amir Wilson, Ariyon Bakare, Andrew Scott, Will Keen, Ruta Gedmintas and Lin-Manuel Miranda all return. Joining the cast this season are Terence Stamp, Jade Anouka, Simone Kirby, and previously announced Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
Something to excite viewers is that we will actually get to see much more of Andrew Scott’s character, Colonel John Parry, in the second season as is evident by the teaser. We will also get to see much more of the witches in the second season and their role in the upcoming war. The Golden Compass was the sacred object of focus in the first season, as it is in the first novel. The trailer does a great job at teasing the second season’s primary object of focus from the novels The Subtle Knife.
His Dark Materials is produced by Bad Wolf in association with New Line Cinema for BBC One and HBO. Executive producing the series are Jane Tranter, Dan McCulloch, Joel Collins and Julie Gardner for Bad Wolf; Philip Pullman, Jack Thorne, Tom Hooper; Deborah Forte, Toby Emmerich and Carolyn Blackwood for New Line Cinema; and Ben Irving and Piers Wenger for the BBC.
His Dark Materials season 2 premieres in November on HBO.
