Head back into the magical (or currently non-magical) world of The Magicians which is returning for its third season on Syfy!
For those who may not be aware of this series, it is based on Lev Grossman’s bestselling novels, which center on Quentin Coldwater and his 20-something friends. They are thrust into the unfamiliar world of the beautifully enchanting yet mysteriously dangerous Fillory—and places beyond—where they must draw upon their novice skills to save the existence of magic.
The new season will see the gang rally together again in an attempt to bring magic back. Our six heroes will board the Muntjac, a magical ship that will take them on their adventure to restore magic.
Joining this seasons cast is Supernatural fan favourite Felicia Day. She will play Poppy, a dragon expert who will be a familiar character for readers of the book series. Her character will be introduced as a Brakebills student who has had plenty of field experience and her expertise perhaps could be instrumental in bringing magic back.
Candis Cayne will return as the Fairy Queen and the deal Margo made with her to save their kingdom will see Eliot and Margo as the unwilling pawns of the Fairy Queen. The Fairy Queen has her own dark vision for Fillory’s future and whose demands on Margo tend to be particularly baffling and hilariously humiliating — which is what you’d expect from this typically whimsical, mysterious, and at times sadistic species.
Starring Jason Ralph, Stella Maeve, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Hale Appleman, Arjun Gupta, Summer Bishil, Rick Worthy and Jade Tailor.
The series is executive produced by John McNamara, Sera Gamble, Chris Fisher and Groundswell Productions’ Michael London and Janice Williams.
The 13-episode season kicks off January 10th at 9/10c on Syfy.
