Fantasy TV series His Dark Materials has been picked up for a third season and will be based on The Amber Spyglass, the third of Philip Pullman’s trilogy, and is to start production in Cardiff in 2021 with production studio Bad Wolf. The Amber Spyglass is a steampunk re-evaluation of the Biblical tale of Adam and Eve and features Lyra’s sexual awakening.

Francesca Orsi, Executive Vice President, HBO Programming, said, “Bringing Phillip Pullman’s epic, intricate and culturally resonant body of work to television has been a tremendous privilege. We thank our incredible partners at the BBC and the entire Bad Wolf team, led by the indefatigable Jane Tranter, for their exceptional work on the first two seasons. We look forward to completing the trilogy with this final chapter in Lyra’s journey.”

Jane Tranter, Executive Producer for Bad Wolf, noted, “His Dark Materials has been a truly global TV experience and a personal career highlight. The creative team at Bad Wolf in Cardiff made the impossible possible and brought Philip Pullman’s worlds into vivid life. To see that hard work and dedication applauded and embraced by fans around the world has made all the hard work worthwhile.”
