His Dark Materials TV series on the BBC: Casting, characters, start date - everything you need to know
Are they actually going to kill God at the end, or are they gonna wimp out to avoid offending the monotheist population? Because if they don't show the death of The Authority, I might as well just replay Persona 5 or Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne again.

His Dark Materials was one of the first YA fiction series I read growing up and really resonated with me for a long time. I was really disappointed with the Golden Compass movie that came out several years back and think the story will definitely be better off as a television series.
James McAvoy and the rest of the cast look stellar, so I am pretty pumped for this.
I just hope they have the guts to make it YA and not a hybridized thing to appeal to sci-fiers well into their 20s/30s.
The whole plot is for kids, and I don't think it'll work that well if you try hitting demographics rather than reading what the plot can carry on screen as compared to in text where fantastical things can seem plausible.
