If you’ve been wondering how The Magicians survived their battle with The Beast in the finale… tune in tonight for answers.
I confess, this series cast a spell on me from the very first episode. The pilot “Unauthorized Magic,” which aired on December 16, 2015, was one of those rare episodes that drew me in and never let go. Looking back now, it’s a pretty perfect introduction to writer Lev Grossman’s fantasy world. If you’re not caught up, I strongly recommend hitting Netflix and bingeing the first season. Though you fall in love with the characters right away, the storytelling is highly serialized. You need to be aware of Season 1’s events before watching tonight’s premiere.
For those that are up to speed, The Magician‘s proved itself to be no Harry Potter dealing with themes J. K. Rowling would never dare touch. The first season grew darker and darker as it went along. I was actually quite shocked at what Julia went through, as well as learning The Beast’s story and identity. In Season 2, the stakes are higher as our young Magicians rule over the enchanted world of Fillory, while struggling to save the existence of magic. Sounds intense, doesn’t it? Yeah we’re in for one hell of a ride. Support the show, tune in LIVE!
