It's rare to find shows that scratch that fantasy tick and provide witchy magic at the same time. As a result, when AMC's A Discovery of Witches went on air, it received a great response. The show managed to strike a right balance between the magical aspects and its romance. Therefore, both types of the audience liked the show. However, there's only one season of the show that's out. Fans of the show have been wondering about the second season of the show and demand has been high. Fortunately, there are updates about the upcoming season. Here's everything you need to know about Season 2 of A Discovery of Witches.
The filming for the show began last year in July 2019 and ended this year. Sources report filming ended before pandemic hit across the world. Sky announced that the show would be released this year. However, it is unclear whether the post-production process was over before the pandemic or not. Therefore, there might be delays in the schedule that the network released. The release might occur right on time because the numbers might be better right now. We will have to wait for more details.
Matthew Clairmont plays the show's protagonist Terresa Matthew Goode. Other members of the cast include Alex Kingston as Sarah Bishop, Valarie Pettiford as Emily Mather, Daniel Ezra as Nathaniel Wilson, Aisling Loftus as Sophie Norman, Aiysha Hart as Miriam Shephard, and Edward Bluemel as Marcus Whitmore. Tom Hughes as Kit Marlowe, Michael Jibson as Emperor Rudolf II, Steven Cree as Gallowgas De Clermont, and James Purefoy as Philippe De Clermont are coming to show as new additions. There is a lot of other supporting casts in the show as well and listing them all is impossible here. We have listed all the primary characters above.
From what we know, Diana will meet a witch instructor this season who will help her control her magic. Marcus and Miriam will be taking care of Nathaniel and Sophie. Sophie is pregnant, and we might get to see a child this season. Sky and Palmer have dropped hints indicating this season will be more exciting and action-packed. There's no telling what might happen, but new characters will come into view. Hopefully, the plotline pans out smoothly, and the new characters are likeable.
In the first season, the show introduced us to Diana, a witch and historian. Diana's life changes when a centuries-old vampire Matthew comes into her life. The couple runs into all sorts of dangers as more witches and vampires fight each other. Throughout the season, we see their relationship grow while the plotline progresses further and tensions increase. The show is fascinating to watch if you're into fantasy and magic.
The trailer of Season 2 has not come out on YouTube yet. However, here's the trailer for Season One:
