The series continues to defy expectations, achieving critical acclaim and increased viewership during the second season. I know when I had heard about the show, I had very low expectations for it and was pleasantly surprised when I viewed the first few episodes.
A general synopsis of the series can be found below:
Based on Lev Grossman’s fantasy trilogy, The Magicians follows Quentin Coldwater (Jason Ralph) and his friends at Brakebills, a magical university in upstate New York. In the show’s first season, they discovered that Fillory, a fantasy land that they read about in a series of children’s novels, is real, and that the magic that they’re learning is far darker than they imagined. The second season has centered on the young magicians as they live in Fillory and try to defeat a threat that could destroy the entire magical world.
