Their goal is to do 1 season per book (at least for the original trilogy). If it's successful I think we assume they will continue on with the newer books. In the books the other world stuff simply isn't really part of the story until Book 2, so the show is introducing these elements earlier.Coram/Serafina and Lyra/Iorik were some of my favorite scenes so far. The tragedy with Billy really drove home the importance of the connection between humans and daemons.
I like the new characters in the other world but it feels too early to be fleshing it out so much. Without having read the books it feels like something that should be setup next season so Will and Lyra can team up in Season 3. I hope the writers have planned ahead for 4-6 seasons and aren't just trying to cram as much plot in as they can to make it more exciting or from fear of cancellation.
