Fans recently received good news from Syfy when the network announces the premiere of The Magicians season 2. The second season of the hit drama will air on January 25.
The Magicians is based on the bestselling novels written by Lev Grossman. To know more about Syfy‘s magical tv series, here is the synopsis:
“The story centers on Quentin Coldwater (Jason Ralph) and his 20-something friends as they discover their magical abilities at Brakebills University for Magical Medagogy, a secret upstate New York university specializing in magic. There they come to the realization that the fantasies they read about as children are all too real, and unwittingly invite a malevolent entity from the other side into their lives. Heading into Season 2, this group of unlikely heroes have been thrust into even more dangerous and unfamiliar territory, and must draw upon their novice skills to defeat a threat that could destroy the magical world itself. Driven by power, revenge and survival, they learn that those who entered the hauntingly beautiful world of Fillory will never be the same as those who leave.”
In the first episode of The Magicians season 2, Quentin and the whole gang goes on an adventure in Fillory to search for the great magic that will defeat the beast. The beast and evil magicians are out to destroy the world. And it is up to Quentin and his friends to stop them.
According to Collider, the protagonist encounters a mystical-looking woman who warns him of dangerous Fillorian creatures. In the trailer, the blind Dean Frogg tells Quentin, ”Magic is dying…If magic dies here, it dies everywhere…The fate of the world is in your hands.”
Michael London, Janice Williams, John McNamara and Sera Gamble are the executive producers of the series. Stella Maeve, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Hale Appleman, Arjun Gupta and Summer Bishil complete the main cast.
