The last season of His Dark Materials hits HBO Max this month.
Starting on December 5, the streaming service will air the last His Dark Materials episodes until the series finale on December 26. Based on Philip Pullman’s fantasy trilogy novel series, His Dark Materials centers around a seemingly ordinary but brave young woman from another world. The final season will see Will, the bearer of The Subtle Knife, and Lyra, the prophesied child, travel through multiple worlds to find and protect each other.
“In the final chapter of this epic fantasy series, Lyra, the prophesied child, and Will, the bearer of The Subtle Knife, must journey to a dark place from which no one has ever returned,” reads the synopsis. “As her father’s great war against the Authority edges closer, they will learn that saving the worlds comes at a terrible price.”
Season 3 will feature returning cast members including Dafne Keen, Amir Wilson, Ruth Wilson, Simone Kirby, Will Keen, Jade Anouka, Ruta Gedmintas, James McAvoy, and Lin-Manuel Miranda. It will be directed by Amit Gupta, Charles Martin, and Weronika Tofilska.
