A second season, which premiered in November 2020, adapts the second book, "The Subtle Knife," while a third and final season is set to adapt the third book, "The Amber Spyglass." The show has become a popular and beloved adaptation of Pullman's beloved series, and has introduced a new generation of viewers to the fantastical world of "His Dark Materials."
