New worlds await Lyra and her friends and foes alike — and we won’t have to wait much longer to see them ourselves.
HBO has confirmed that the second season of His Dark Materials will hit the network as well as its streaming platform, HBO Max, this November. Picking up where the debut season left off, season two sees a traumatised Lyra follow Asriel into the portal he opened to a new world. There, she finally crosses paths with Will, learning her fate is tied to our own world as well as Will’s hunt for his father.
Along with the new poster you can see above, HBO has released a few posters for individual characters, both returning and as yet unfamiliar.
