Get ready for some more magic! The Syfy channel has renewed freshman drama "The Magicians" for a 13-episode second season to air in 2017, Variety reported. The exciting news comes while the supernatural drama is only four episodes into its first season.
"Thanks to an extraordinarily gifted creative team of executive producers and our partners at Universal Cable Productions, 'The Magicians' has become a buzzed-about hit, enchanting fans of the novels as well as attracting new and younger audiences to Syfy," Dave Howe, president of Syfy & Chiller, said in a statement, according to Deadline.
The series is based on the bestselling fantasy novels by Lev Grossman. The show centers on Quentin (Jason Ralph), a grad student who was chosen to attend Brakebills College for Magical Pedagogy. The show also stars Stella Maeve, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Hale Appleman, Arjun Gupta and Summer Bishil.
