It’s been nearly three years since we’ve seen any new episodes from HBO’s Philip Pullman fantasy drama adaptation, His Dark Materials. But the eight-episode third and final season is finally almost here (premiering December 5) and we’re about to get the epic multi-world conclusion that fans have been waiting for.

Some of the series’ cast and executive producers — including EPs Jane Tranter and Dan McCulloch and stars James McAvoy (Lord Asriel) and Amir Wilson (Will Parry) — visited the TV Insider suite during New York Comic Con to tease what’s ahead in the highly-anticipated final round as the drama prepares for an all-out battle. That battle will see McAvoy’s Lord Asriel, who was largely absent for Season 2, waging a war against the Authority. For now, he’s gathering troops and help from all over, including the angels we see him meet in Season 2’s conclusion.
