HBO released the official trailer for the highly anticipated HBO Original drama series His Dark Materials , which will premiere same time as the U.S. this fall, exclusively on HBO GO and HBO. The eight-episode series is set for two seasons.

Lyra’s search for a kidnapped friend uncovers a sinister plot involving stolen children, and becomes a quest to understand a mysterious phenomenon called Dust.

Keen will be joined by James McAvoy as Lyra’s Uncle Asriel; Ruth Wilson as socialite Mrs. Coulter; and Lin-Manuel Miranda as adventurer Lee Scoresby.
