The Magicians (Wednesdays, 9/8C) returns with our protagonists still stuck in a world without magic – mostly – but there are glimmerings that the situation can be reversed…
The penultimate episode of The Magicians: Season Two (Syfy, Wednesdays, 10/9C) finds Eliot banished from Fillory; Quentin and Julia have broken Alice’s shade out of Underworld; Josh found himself high-fiving an Eliot who was suddenly not there); King Idri and a good many Fillorians are rats, and Senator Gaines has reached his limit with his dad.
In other words, same stuff, different day.
Syfy has announced the renewal of The Magicians ahead of tonight penultimate episode of Season Two (10/9C) – probably because the series has grown its audience in every demographic.
The Magicians has been given a 13-episode second season order by Syfy. For more, follow the jump.
Syfy’s The Magicians (Mondays, 9/8C) is adapted from the bestselling trilogy by Lev Grossman. It follows Quentin Coldwater and his best friend Julia as they discover that magic exists and while one is accepted into a hidden magic school and the other is not.
Essentially, series creators Sera Gamble and John McNamara are approaching the series as dealing with magic in our real world, right now, in New York City. It doesn’t take long for the series to get to the magic, but it’s the characters who will make it work.
Syfy’s The Magicians (Mondays, 9/8C) is a series that looks at what it might be like to have real magic in a real place (New York City) right now – from the point of view of Quentin Coldwater, a graduate student who kind drifts onto the quad at Breakbills College for Magical Pedagogy, and his best friend, Julia. Created by Sera Gamble (Supernatural) and John McNamara (Vengeance Unlimited, Aquarius), The Magicians is adapted from the bestselling novels by Lev Grossman.
Last week, Gamble and series star Jason Ralph spoke with a group of bloggers/journalists about the series – how it hews closely to the book; how it differs, and what author Lev Grossman’s involvement is.

The Supernatural Panel at the prestigious Paley Festival was truly an entertaining and informative event. Kudos must also be given to the moderator of the afternoon’s festivities, Maureen Ryan, lead critic of AOL’s TV Squad. She kept the discussion flowing, gave all the panelists equal opportunities to answer questions, and came prepared with knowledgeable, in-depth, intelligent questions to present from both, herself and from fans. And if the discussion veered too far off track, she reined it back in again gracefully. Part I covered the introductions, and details of a clip shown corresponding to the upcoming western-themed episode. We left Part II with the creator of Supernatural, Eric Kripke, talking about the many forms discussions take in the writers’ room. This third part will cover comments from Eric about writing the season finale, his view on exposition, Castiel’s voice, Bobby’s scene with demon Crowley, Jared’s view on soulless Sam, the amulet, and much more! There were also so many times that the facial expressions and actions were so completely hilarious, that I hope The Paley Center for Media releases the DVD of this panel as quickly as possible. Again, please do not hesitate to support the Paley Center so that they can continue providing such wonderful panels. And I won’t torture you any further. This part completes the panel summary/transcript report in a marathon run to the end, and includes a highlight video released by the Paley Center.
