Today it was announced that The Magicians, the new series from SyFy based on the Lev Grossman series of the same name, is getting a second season of 13 episodes. They are expected to air in 2017, with the same executive producers; this includes Sera Gamble from Supernatural.
“Thanks to an extraordinarily gifted creative team of executive producers and our partners at Universal Cable Productions, THE MAGICIANS has become a buzzed-about hit, enchanting fans of the novels as well as attracting new and younger audiences to Syfy,” said Dave Howe, President, Syfy & Chiller.
This delights me because I get another season of staring at the beautifully awkward Jason Ralph and Hale Appleman. For those who haven’t been obsessed week to week, here’s the synopsis of the show:
Starring Jason Ralph (Quentin Coldwater), Stella Maeve (Julia), Olivia Taylor Dudley (Alice) Hale Appleman (Eliot), Arjun Gupta (Penny) and Summer Bishil (Margo), THE MAGICIANS centers on Quentin, a brilliant grad student chosen to attend Brakebills College for Magical Pedagogy, a secret upstate New York university specializing in magic. He and his 20-something friends soon discover that the magical fantasy world they read about as children is all too real when they unwittingly invite a malevolent entity from the other side into their world. Also reprising their roles for season two will be series regulars Rick Worthy (Dean Fogg) and Jade Tailor (Kady).
If you haven’t seen the show yet, you’re in luck. It is on tonight (Monday) at 9pm EST/PST.
