Geekery: More Secrets are Uncovered in ‘His Dark Materials’ Season 2 – First Trailer

Sep 1 2020

Lyra’s quest to understand the Magisterium’s motives and find out what Dust is continues. It is not an easy road forward; danger and  adventure awaits.

His Dark Materials stars Dafne Keen, James McAvoy, Ruth Wilson and Lin-Manuel Miranda. Adapting Philip Pullman’s award-winning trilogy of the same name, which is considered a modern masterpiece of imaginative fiction, the first season follows Lyra, a seemingly ordinary but brave young woman from another world. Her search for a kidnapped friend uncovers a sinister plot involving stolen children, and becomes a quest to understand a mysterious phenomenon called Dust. As she journeys through the worlds, including our own, Lyra meets Will, a determined and courageous boy. Together, they encounter extraordinary beings and dangerous secrets, with the fate of both the living — and the dead — in their hands.


Last season had great production design and the daemons blended in with their surroundings; and the cast was great. It had its problems – the lack of exposition was frustrating for some folks that hadn’t read the books, it was a head first dive. This season shouldn’t have the same issue, and it brings with it the good bits of the first 10 episode run.

Cast includes James McAvoy, Dafne Keen, Ruth Wilson, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Amir Wilson.

His Dark Materials Season Two arrives on HBOMax and Sky in November.
