His Dark Materials season 3 Cast: Who’s coming back?
All of Lyra (Dafne Keen), Will (Amir Wilson), Mrs. Coulter (Ruth Wilson), Mary Malone (Simone Kirby), Serafina Pekkala (Ruta Gedmintas), Father MacPhail (Will Keen), and Lord Asriel have been confirmed to appear by the BBC (James McAvoy).
After being away for the majority of Lyra’s escapades, Lord Asriel made a surprise cameo appearance towards the end of season two.
Lyra had always thought of the egocentric adventurer as her uncle, so learning he was her biological father was a devastating shock.
After his disappearance, it appeared that contractual obligations would prevent James McAvoy from returning to the part for Season 2, however screenwriter Jack Thorne said that McAvoy was vital in making the show work.
Telling Radio Times, he said: “James McAvoy came in and gave us a COVID day, and executive producer Dan McCulloch moved mountains to make it happen.
“James stood firm and yelled up at the heavens, and it was inspiring to witness him do so.
I appreciate that the previewers haven’t given anything away thus far.
New to the cast are Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Commander Ogunwe) from Suicide Squad, Jamie Ward (Father Gomez) from The Durrells, and Amber Fitzgerald-Woolf (Ama).
Balthamos, Baruch, and Xaphania, three rebel angels, will be played by Kobna Holdbrook-Smith (Justice League), Simon Harrison (Endeavour), and Chipo Chung (Into the Badlands).
In the meantime, Sian Clifford (Fleabag) and Jonathan Aris (Good Omens) will be joining the cast in season three as Agent Salmakia and Commander Roke, respectively. The final Pullman novel gives them a new name: the Gallivespian spies.
Lyra’s first-season pal Roger (Lewin Lloyd) may return as well.
Season 2 saw the deaths of three major characters: Lee Scoresby (Lin-Manuel Miranda), Lord Boreal (Ariyon Bakare), and Colonel John Parry (Andrew Scott). While we wouldn’t put money on it, it seems likely that they are all gone.
Helen McCrory, star of Peaky Blinders, provided the voice of Stelmaria, Lord Asriel’s daemon; it is unclear how the showrunners will deal with McCrory’s passing in April 2021.
‘We haven’t thought about it,’ McAvoy told The Times. I don’t think we want to discuss it, but if/when we do, someone else will be honoured to fill her… if not footprints, then voice steps.
His Dark Materials Season 3 Plot: What Will Happen?
The forthcoming season is based on Philip Pullman’s The Amber Spyglass, the third and final book in the His Dark Materials book trilogy.
As open battle erupts between rebels and the Authority, Asriel works to establish a new heavenly republic. To accomplish his goals, however, he needs the Subtle Knife, which is now in Will’s possession.
Tranter said to Radio Times, “With our world-class creative team in Cardiff no project is too hard.” The Amber Spyglass is the most delightfully intricate of Philip Pullman’s novels to adapt for TV.
“This season is a tale of love and truth as well as a grand adventure. The genius of Philip’s universes is captured in the screenplays written by Jack, Francesca, and Amelia, and we are joined by both our beloved returning actors and some amazing newcomers to the series.”
Some photographs with a grim, gritty atmosphere have been shared by the His Dark Materials Twitter account, with the captions: “This is the start of the end. His sinister substances; that amber spyglass.” It’s not at all ominous…

Mrs Coulter has kidnapped Lyra because she doesn’t want her to fulfil the witches’ prophecy and become the second Eve, saving humanity.
I hope we walked the line where you can see Mrs. Coulter in two ways,” Jack Thorne said of the character in an interview with The Beat before the season two finale.
“There is a paradox within her to what she genuinely wants, and she hasn’t addressed that dilemma,” a character says. “You can see someone keen on seeking power and you can see someone intent on pursuing Lyra.”
Additionally, we anticipate visiting other worlds, such as the Land of the Dead and a world inhabited by elephant-like creatures called muleta, and gaining a deeper understanding of angels (or watchers).
In addition, the second episode of season two featured a scene involving a specific bench that alluded to a major point in the third book, providing a possible glimpse into the show’s final act.
Here, you’ll learn the answers to these questions and more.
Season three is typically a darker and more intense trip (hello, Buffy, Angel, and, yeah, Friends). Wilson told Radio Times, “I believe it’s a lot darker, a lot sadder.”
“In comparison, this one is far more heartfelt. It was more difficult to film, in my opinion. More has happened, and more characters have been introduced. Many exciting things lie ahead.”
He responded “love, loss, and death” when asked to sum up the season in just three words. What a disappointing prospect!
If anything, the series will be HUGE. We can anticipate the same level of intensity from the film adaptation of The Amber Spyglass, which is full of both thrilling action and heartfelt moments.
