HBO’s new original fantasy drama series His Dark Materials: Season One is now available!

Adapted from Philip Pullman’s epic trilogy of the same name, the package features all eight hour-long episodes from the debut season along with an exclusive new bonus feature, Making His Dark Materials.

His Dark Materials takes place in a world parallel to our own, where a human’s soul exists outside one’s body in the form of a talking animal called a “daemon.” The all-powerful Magisterium rule over this world where they suppress any knowledge that attempts to challenge its ideas, particularly around the theory that multiple worlds exist. Season One of this compelling HBO series follows Lyra (Dafne Keen, Logan), a young orphan who was left as a baby at Oxford’s Jordan College by her uncle Lord Asriel (James McAvoy, X-Men: First Class) and desires a life of adventure beyond the confines of her bookish, scholarly surroundings.

Along with Keen and McAvoy, the series also features Ruth Wilson (Saving Mr. Banks) as Mrs. Coulter; Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton) as the adventurer Lee Scoresby; Clarke Peters (Treme) as The Master of Jordan College.
