The first season of Syfy’s The Magicians ended with some major cliffhangers, so we caught up with the cast to talk about what’s coming in Season 2. The short version: Fillory, Fillory, and more Fillory.
The cast said the new season finally gives them a chance “to breathe” and explore the world after all the world-building efforts in Season 1 to establish the characters, Brakebills and Fillory. Moving forward, everyone involved seemed to indicate Fillory will be a character unto itself in Year 2. So look for even more magic. The cast also talk about the most surprising scenes they’ve shot in Season 2, and it sounds like the Fillory throne room should be something to see.
As for the tone of the series, it seems The Magicians will be getting “darker” next year, though it should still maintain the lightness and humor that made the first season so enjoyable. Thematically, the new season will explore how magic actually makes their lives more difficult as they learn more and become stronger throughout the season.
The Magicians returns to Syfy (Corporate owner of Blastr -Ed.) in 2017.
