Those “attending” A Discovery of Witches‘ virtual New York Comic Con panel on Saturday were treated to a Season 2 teaser that is all about power — including those who want it, and those who have it.
Gathered on-set at Wolf Studios Wales, where they are currently filming Season 3, executive producer Lachlan MacKinnon and Deborah Harkness, author of the All Souls book trilogy, teed up the teaser trailer for the 10-episode Season 2 (which comes about three minutes into the panel video above).
Later, the two were joined by cast members Matthew Goode, Teresa Palmer, Ed Bluemel, Adelle Leonce and Steven Cree, to field fan questions.
Season 2 is still set to premiere in the UK in January 2021, and arrive Stateside “soon thereafter” on Sundance Now and Shudder.
Adapted from Deborah Harkness’ All Souls book trilogy, A Discovery of Witches is set in a world where witches, vampires and daemons pass as humans. In Season 2, which is based on the book Shadow of Night, “We see Diana and Matthew time-travel to Elizabethan London, where Diana has to go on a journey to find the teacher for her magic, as well as to find the Book of Life,” MacKinnon shared during the panel.
Meanwhile, in the present, it has been reported that Gerbert, Knox, Satu and Domenico try to find out what happened to Matthew and Diana; Sarah and Em ally with witch hunter Ysabeau de Clermont; and Marcus and Miriam do their best to protect Sophie, who is pregnant with a witch baby.
Season 1 debuted in the U.S. in spring of 2019, on Shudder and Sundance Now. The series performed so well there that parent company AMC Networks later simulcast the first season on BBC America and AMC, paired with Killing Eve‘s second season. (There is no word yet on whether AMC and BBCA will do same with Season 2.)
Back in November of 2018, Sky One renewed A Discovery of Witches for a second and a third series before the first finale was broadcast in the UK.
