We now have an official release date for the His Dark Materials TV show.

It’s reportedly been one of the most expensive British TV productions and frankly, it’s getting harder and harder for us to keep our collective cool about it.

Thankfully the release date is fast approaching…

What is the release date for His Dark Materials?

His Dark Materials will premiere on Sunday 3 November on BBC One.

You’ll also be able to stream the eight-part series after the episodes air on BBC iPlayer.

Academy Award-winning director Tom Hooper has overseen the whole series and helmed several episodes.

Combine that with the stellar cast and it’s little wonder why the hype is building.

Logan’s breakout star Dafne Keen, 13, will star as the tough-as-nails young Lyra.

The rest of the series’ fantastic line-up includes Ruth Wilson as Mrs Coulter, James McAvoy as Lord Asriel and Lin-Manuel Miranda as Lee Scoresby.

Director Orro Bathurst previously told www8.sale-north-face.org: ‘The books are quite Victoriana in their fantasy, but it’s pretty on the nose – there are a lot of fans of that book and it’s a great book so why mess with it?’

His Dark Materials will be released on BBC on Sunday 3 November.
