James McAvoy’s Episode No Longer A Part Of His Dark Materials Season 2

Recently at Comic-Con@Home, executive producer of His Dark Materials- Jane Tranter revealed that His Dark Materials Season 2 would feature seven episodes and not eight. Initially, it was planned that the season would have seven episodes and a standalone episode that would act as James McAvoy’s main appearance for the second season. However, now that doesn’t seem possible. 

The whole His Dark Materials team has been incredibly lucky when it comes to production. They had already completed the seven seasons before 2019 ended. The main unit had wrapped up before Christmas 2019, and the only thing to shoot was the standalone episode, which isn’t connected to these seven episodes. Then lockdown happened and paused everything. So, the creators decided to continue the post-production on the seven episodes that would make up the original content from the book and drop the standalone episode. However, that is not it. It is very much possible that later on sometime, they would revisit the standalone episode.
