Following tonight’s finale, when could you expect His Dark Materials season 3 to arrive on HBO? We’re going to dive into that within this piece, as we know enthusiasm around the idea is already there.
Let’s go ahead and kick things off, though, by noting this: You are going to have a chance to see a season 3 coming. That much is already a sure thing. The network confirmed that news earlier this month, while also noting that this is going to be the final season. We don’t think that this is going to come as a shock to many people out there, given that the series is an adaptation of the Philip Pullman trilogy of books. There was always meant to be a defined beginning, middle, and end to this story. There is certainly more that could be done in this world beyond The Amber Spyglass (the next book to be adapted), but we’re glad to get a sense of closure. Given the scale and sense of ambition here, we’re glad that HBO and their partners at the BBC showed enough loyalty to continue to keep this series on the air.
Let’s get back now to the subject at the heart of this article: A potential release date. We know that personally, we’d love it in the event that the show premiered in late 2021, or at least a time-frame that matched when the first two seasons premiered. Yet, there may be challenges associated with that. By the time that season 1 finished airing, there was already a ton of work done on season 2. They’re behind this year, and this is also a show with a lot of post-production work since you have the daemons and the entire world to create.
Ultimately, we’re preparing to wait a little while. This season, the HBO episodes aired a good eight days after they did on BBC One in the UK; we’ll see if that pattern stays there moving forward.
