His Dark Materials renewed for third season

The gift-giving season is upon us. The spectacular second season of His Dark Materials, based on The Subtle Knife, concluded Sunday on BBC One in the UK. The BBC/HBO co-production has been renewed for a third season based on Sir Philip Pullman's third, and final, book in the trilogy, The Amber Spyglass.

“His Dark Materials has been a truly global TV experience and a personal career highlight,” said executive producer Jane Tranter. “The creative team at Bad Wolf in Cardiff made the impossible possible and brought Philip Pullman’s worlds into vivid life. To see that hard work and dedication applauded and embraced by fans around the world has made all the hard work worthwhile. None of this would have been possible without the wonderful commitment and conviction of the BBC and HBO. I am excited, thrilled and honoured to be making the third part of Philip Pullman’s trilogy with their support and encouragement. Diolch.”

The third season of the, refreshingly complex and thought-provoking, family drama is expected to be filmed next summer in Cardiff, the home of stablemate Doctor Who, with a release in late 2022 due to the ongoing pandemic.

Are you excited for His Dark Materials season three? Let me know in the comments below.
