The cast and crew are currently hard at work filming Season 3, which was renewed a while back when the first season premiered to phenomenal numbers. Author Deborah Harkness, the author of the All Souls trilogy from which the show is based, gathered with the Sky Original series executive producer Lachlan MacKinnon to tease the new batch of episodes.

Cast members like Teresa Palmer,  Matthew Goode, and Adelle Loence also joined the panel later to answer fan questions.

When will A Discovery of Witches Season 2 premiere?

As the series is a Sky Original, it will premiere in the U.K. first, on Friday, Jan. 8, 2021. The good news is,  U.S. fans won’t have to wait nearly as long for new content as the show will make its North American debut the following day on Jan. 9 via Sundance Now and Shudder!

What is the storyline of A Discovery of Witches Season 2?

The second season will be based on Shadow of Night. Diana will seek the Book of Life and a teacher who can help her with her magic. To do so, she and Matthew will have to time travel to Elizabethan London.

Elsewhere, Em and Sarah will team up with a witch hunter while Marcus and Miriam try to keep Sophie safe after it is revealed she is pregnant with a witch baby.
