With Game of Thrones coming to an end, HBO is updating its current arsenal with a bevy of original TV series.

Based off of the bestselling novels by Philip Pullman, His Dark Materials will mark the latest adapted fantasy series to join the streaming giant. “Now is the time to choose a side,” the icy and frightening Mrs. Coulter (played by Ruth Wilson) says in the trailer posted above.

The series (just like the books) are set in an alternate world where one’s soul manifests as a shape-shifting animal called a Daemon. Centering around a young girl named Lyra Belacqua (played by Logan star Dafne Keen), the series will follow her as she travels to the Arctic to find her friend Roger who has been kidnapped and experimented on. Season one of His Dark Materials is adapted from the first installment of Pullman’s trilogy, The Golden Compass.

His Dark Materials will also star James McAvoy, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Anne-Marie Duff, Clarke Peters, Ariyon Bakare, Will Keen, Ian Gelder, Georgina Campbell, Lewin Lloyd, Lucian Msamati, James Cosmo, Daniel Frogson, Tyler Howitt, Ruta Gedmintas, and Mat Fraser.

Co-produced by BBC and HBO, His Dark Materials will air in the coming months. Stay tuned for an official release date.

In more entertainment news, Game of Thrones actors say good-bye to the series via Instagram.

James McAvoy will also be starring in this summer’s IT: Chapter 2.
