HBO and BBC’s new programming line-up boasts a roster of multiple big-ticket, magnum opera. There are several shows in the pipeline, waiting to see the light of the day.

Soon, HBO joined the bandwagon, acquiring the rights to broadcast the eight-part series in America and to distribute it elsewhere. Production went on floors in March while filming continued till early October. Once, the cast and crew had wrapped up shoot for the show’s freshman season, the networks, HBO and BBC, renewed the show for another one.

Even though His Dark Materials has been renewed for a second season ahead of its release, its networks haven’t spilled the beans about its release date. Sources; however, often cite that HBO is probably waiting for Game of Thrones to conclude before it can announce the release date for His Dark Materials.
