After a legendary season two finale, fans of His Dark Materials are desperate to know more about the series’ future. Lucky for them, the team at Bad Wolf Studios are already on the go for the third season of the Philip Pullman’s book’s adaptation.
Executive produce, Joel Collins, says that they are in the early stages of development. It will transit quickly into the latter stages, he mentions.
He further adds, “There’s very few of us in a very secret group doing early work, which is exciting and complex. We’re trying to solve the puzzle away from all the eyes and the noise.”

They are pushing ahead with the scripts because they need to be ready to film ASAP next summer.
On the other hand, if the team is able to shoot quickly there’s a possibility that the series will return as soon as winter 2021.
What will be the 3 Plot?
If the reboot takes place, the third season will be drawn from the third and final book in Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials book series. It is under the title, The Amber Spyglass.
With Asriel’s work on building a new Republican of Heaven, the rebellion against the Authority becomes an open battle zone. But to achieve his ends he needs the Subtle Knife, which is currently in Will’s hands.
Mrs Coutler keeps Lyra in captivity. She is determined to stop her daughter from abiding by the witches’ prophecy and becoming the second Eve, in turn saving humanity.
Fans sure do expect to learn more about the angels (or watchers). Being taken to a new world, including the Land of the Dead, and a world of elephant-like creatures known as the mulefa, would be a dream come true.
We dive into all of that and more right here, so strike while the iron’s hot.
