What's ‘His Dark Materials’ Season Three About?
His Dark Materials centers on Lyra, an orphan, searching for her long-lost friend. Lyra later discovers that her friend disappeared due to a kidnapping plot related to Dust, a cosmic component. The previous season left so much on a cliffhanger, with Lord Ariel requesting the angels' help with a war against Magisterium and Lyra's kidnap by her ‘mother’.
The upcoming season will proceed with its predecessor's storyline as it tries to maintain the book's theme. The second Eve will be responsible for a more significant cosmic change as Lyra's search for her lost friend, Roger, intensifies.
Being the last season, Lyra and Will will confess their love and affection for each other, although they're forced to follow separate paths as they escape the wrath of Dust. Who will win the battle between the heroes and the Dust?
