After zestful anticipation, the third season of His Dark Materials hit the home screens of a plethora of people across the globe in December 2022. The series premiered on HBO and was loosely based on the novel of the same name penned by Philip Pullman. As we all knew, the story revolves around a naive orphan girl named Lyra who is living in a fantasy world.
So it would be a great disappointment if we keep our hopes high for the next His Dark Materials season 4 of this riveting drama series because nothing has been confirmed yet.
So it is more likely that the next season would not be happening as the plot has concluded in its third season. Let us have a comprehensive look at the resounding series and learn more about it.
Is His Dark Materials Season 4 Happening?
With a lacerated heart, it is confirmed that His Dark Materials season 4 won’t be happening as its third season has been concluded. As we all were well aware, the series was already planned to have a three-season drama as it is based on the astounding trilogy of Philip Pullman.
It is now the following norm that many of the greatest acknowledged novels have been adapted to umpteen screenplays. So as per the trilogy, the drama series has come to its conclusion in the third season. The last season of the series demonstrated the amalgamation of the concluding story by bringing various characters together and portraying some major events that lead to the inevitable end.
As we all know the plot of the drama, the naive little girl Lyra who is orphaned lives in a magical world. Lyra was in desperate pursuit of liberating the realm from the tyrannical hands of Magisterium with the help of her compadre Will Parry.
The story commences in an alternative world where the souls of humans would be manifested as ruthless animal companions named daemons. The entire season three of the drama struck a chord with its audiences and its enrapturing plot and medley of feasts really made a remarkable place and worldwide popularity.
The show’s astounding star Amir Wilson talked about the contingency plan to work on His Dark Materials season 4. Amir Wilson starred as Will Parry in the series, as we all know recently opened about the ending of the series within three seasons and reaffirmed that it would not serve good to the series if it continues for another season just for the sake of it.
The actor said “I feel like that was their plan. When I signed on, it was with the ‘option to do more seasons’ kind of thing. But obviously, when I came, they had already decided to do a season 2. They would probably know that they were going to do three seasons and kind of leave it at that. Three seasons, three books-it kinds of made sense. It is a bittersweet moment. I am so happy that we are finally able to show what we worked so hard for seven months on. But now it’s really hitting that it’s kind of over. I am happy to be able to share it. But now it’s really hitting that it’s over, and I won’t be playing Will again”.
So the confirmation that we needed from the actor who played a predominant role in the series said that it would not reprise with another season. As he said, the series was already set to demonstrate in a three-season and not overlap it.
So it is confirmed that the tale of Lyra and other characters would not hit the next road and we should have to say a forever goodbye to them in His Dark Materials season 3.

Our lovely Lyra, the character pulled off by Dafne Keen, is an unbearably cute and highly talented British-Spanish actress even stated that she wish that she could play the role of Lyra for the rest of her life because she was so possessed by the character traits of Lyra and was deeply pleased to pull off such a great role.
