His Dark Materials will soon come to a close, and with the help of a familiar face.
In the trailer for Season 3 of HBO's Philip Pullman adaptation, Lyra (Dafne Keen) is warned of "dark forces" out there that she can't quite fathom as she embarks on a journey to "a dark place from which no one has ever returned" alongside Will (Amir Wilson). As her father Lord Asriel (James McAvoy) prepares for war against the Authority, the fate of the world and everything they've fought for remains uncertain.
In the final moments of the trailer, His Dark Materials also teases the return of Lin-Manuel Miranda's Lee Scoresby, who was killed last season in a shootout.
Based on The Amber Spyglass, the final novel of Pullman's trilogy, His Dark Materials Season 3 stars the aforementioned Keen, Wilson, McAvoy, and Miranda, as well as Ruth Wilson, Simon Kirby, Will Keen, Jade Anouka, Ruta Gedminstas, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Jamie Ward, and more.
His Dark Materials returns for its final season on HBO December 5 with two back-to-back episodes. It will be available to stream on HBO Max.
