There is little doubt that the first season of His Dark Materials left fans wondering what would happen to Lyra Belacqua and Will Parry. Not surprisingly, the first teaser for Season 2 doesn't waste time in confirming that the two will realize they both have a greater purpose to serve.

The trailer opens with Father MacPhail stating that "the world is aware of a threat above our heads," but he assures the people of the Magisterium that they will "do whatever is necessary." Interestingly, this line is intercut with a shot of Marisa Coulter striding purposely with her daemon.

What exactly is she planning to do? It is revealed that Mrs. Coulter is determined to get the witches to tell her what their plans are. Not surprisingly, the witches also have their own schemes and it looks like they want to use Lyra to win the battle.
