His Dark Materials Season 3 Plot and Cast
In season two of His Dark Materials, there was a moment in the second episode involving a particular bench that was a nod to a big moment in the third book, which hints at how the series will wrap up.
The upcoming season is based on the third and final book in Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials book series, The Amber Spyglass. The rebellion against the Authority becomes open warfare, with Asriel working to build the new Republic of Heaven. But to achieve his ends he needs the Subtle Knife, which is currently in Will’s hands.
Lyra has been captured by Mrs. Coulter, who is determined to stop her daughter from fulfilling the witches’ prophecy and becoming the second Eve, in turn saving humanity. We’d also expect to learn more about the angels (or watchers), as well as being taken to new worlds, including the Land of the Dead, and a world where elephant-like creatures, known as the mulefa, roam.
Now talking about the cast, it includes Dafne Keen, Amir Wilson, Ruth Wilson, Simone Kirby, Ruta Gedmintas, Will Keen, and James McAvoy in the lead roles.
