HBO and BBC have picked up a final season for the fantasy drama based on Phillip Pullman's novel trilogy with production set to begin in Cardiff, Wales. The pickup comes ahead of the Season 2 finale next week. The eight-episode third season will cover the third book in Pullman's trilogy, The Amber Spyglass. "His Dark Materials has been a truly global TV experience and a personal career highlight," said executive producer Jane Tranter, adding: "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 honored to be making the third part of Philip Pullman’s trilogy with their support and encouragement."
