His Dark Materials officially ended after three seasons, making fans question if there will be His Dark Materials Season 4 or any other spinoff. Though there are no words yet about any renewal, it looks like the continuation of its story is not impossible to happen.

The fantasy drama is based on Philip Pullman's novel trilogy of the same name. After three years, debuting in 2019, the show has ended, but Lyra's (Dafne Keen) story is just starting, and more storylines need to be explored. So, will it happen in His Dark Materials Season 4?

The Possible Continuation of Lyra's Story in His Dark Materials Season 4

The final season featured a major plot twist when Lyra separated from Pantalaimon (Kit Connor) to enter the land of the dead.

It covered the trilogy's final book, The Amber Spyglass, which saw Lyra and Will's (Amir Wilson) journey together and ended the war between Lord Asriel (James McAvoy) and the Authority.

Lyra and Will were both stuck in their own worlds, while Mrs. Coulter (Ruth Wilson) and Lord Asriel died.

That said, Lyra's story can continue in a possible His Dark Materials Season 4 or a sequel set in the same world.

According to ScreenRant, Pullman has written two books about Lyra and Pan's life after the series. Her Oxford is set two years later and sees her facing a vengeful witch after her son dies during the war.

The second book, The Secret Commonwealth, of the Book of Dust trilogy, also tells the life of Lyra 10 years after His Dark Materials ends. This time, she's studying at St. Sophia's College Oxford.

"When I signed on, it was with the 'option to do more seasons' kind of thing," he said.

"But obviously when I came, they'd already decided to do a season 2," he continued. "They'd probably known that they were going to do three seasons and kind of leave it at that. Three seasons, three books–it kind of made sense."
