The second series of His Dark Materials is an adaptation of Phillip Pullman’s second book in the novel series, A Subtle Knife.

The next instalment follows Lyra’s search deep into the world of Dust to look for her father.

Speaking at Comic-Con, screenwriter Jack Thorne said: “I think this series is all about trust.

“I think what Philip’s written in the Subtle Knife is a beautiful poem about trust, about the way that characters have to learn to trust again.

“Will’s come from a situation where he’s not been able to trust anything, his life has taught him to trust nothing.

“And Lyra has learnt through series one that she can’t trust anything.”
