This one is set in a world not terribly unlike our own, except that each person has an animal soul companion known as a “daemon” hanging about. At the center of the story is Lyra (played by Dafne Keen of Logan), a young girl who gets entangled in a dark conspiracy after her friend is kidnapped.
It’s the second screen adaptation of the series, which was previously made into a movie in 2007. If the new TV series is able to capture the spirit of the novels, prepare yourself for one strange, twisty, and irresistibly addictive ride.
His Dark Materials lands on HBO this fall. James McAvoy, Ruth Wilson, and Lin-Manuel Miranda also star.
