Lin-Manuel Miranda is confirmed to be returning to the role of Lee Scoresby for the third and final season of “His Dark Materials” on HBO and the BBC.
Miranda debuted as the adventuring Texan aëronaut in the first season, but seemingly died in a shootout with Magisterium forces at the end of the second.
James McAvoy’s Lord Asriel returns for the new run with his character gathering an army to take down the Authority. The final run of the series adapts the last of Philip Pullman’s trilogy – “The Amber Spyglass”.
“His Dark Materials” will kick off with its first two episodes to air back-to-back on December 5th at 9pm US-ET.
