The Magicians Season 2 Reviews, Episode Guide, and Other News

The Magicians season 2 has come to an end. Take a look back at our coverage for the sophomore season of this Syfy fantasy show.

Note: This news hub for The Magicians Season 2 will be updated as new information becomes available.

According to a Syfy press release, The Magicians season 2 featured Quentin and the gang “thrust into even more dangerous and unfamiliar territory” to defeat a threat that could “destroy the magical world itself.” That was made immediately clear as the season began in Fillory: a great additional setting for the show.

The Magicians stars Jason Ralph as Quentin Coldwater, alongside with Stella Maeve, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Hale Appleman, Arjun Gupta, and Summer Bishil. With slight variations from the novels, The Magicians follows Quentin as he enters the world of Brakebills College, a secret upstate New York university specializing in magic, and continues in Fillory in season 2.
