His Dark Materials Season 2 Release Date, Plot, and Cast

His Dark Materials Season 2 will be premiering on 8th November 2020 for the UK and on 16th November 2020 for the US. It will air on BBC One for the UK and HBO for the US. This is one of those series that is coming out at its exact schedule and has not faced any troubles or delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is because the shooting of Season 1 and Season 2 was wrapped up together, meaning filming of Season 2 finished even before the premiering of Season 1. Cast member Lin-Manuel Miranda tweeted the filming status of Season 2 back in 2019:

The plot of Season 2 will continue from where the first season ended. The first season established the base for the series’s theme. We saw that the TV series was set in a parallel world where everyone had their ‘daemons’ or physical representations of their souls in the form of an animal. Lyra Belacqua, a 12-year old girl, set out to the North Pole to rescue her friend Roger. There she learns about her uncle Asriel’s endeavors and his investigations into ‘Dust.’

Season 1 is inspired by the first volume of the novel, Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials. Season 2 would be based on the second installment ‘Philip Pullman’s The Subtle Knife.’ Season 2 would show that Lyra digs further into the ‘Dust’ case, and by this time, she has learned a crucial lesson, ‘Trust no one.’ She is not alone in her journey as she is joined by Will Parry, who is also lost in this mystical world and is trying to get back to his original world. Meanwhile, Lee Scoresby tries to track down The Mysterious Grumman(John Parry) in his hot-air balloon. Here’s the trailer to Season 2:

The cast of Season 1 is set to return for Season 2. The casting is as follows, Dafne Keen as Lyra Belacqua, Ruth Wilson as Marisa Coulter, Anne-Marie Duff as Ma Costa, Clarke Peters as The Master of Jordan College, James Cosmo as Farder Coram, Ariyon Bakare as Lord Carlo Boreal, Will Keen as Father MacPhail, Lucian Msamati as John Faa, Gary Lewis as Thorold, Lewin Lloyd as Roger Parslow, Daniel Frogson as Tony Costa, James McAvoy as Lord Asriel Belacqua, Lin-Manuel Miranda as Lee Scoresby, Ruta Gedmintas as Serafina Pekkala, Lia Williams as Dr. Cooper, Amir Wilson as Will Parry, Nina Sosanya as Elaine Parry, Andrew Scott as Colonel John Parry.
