SYFY has announced that The Magicians Season 5 premiere date has been set for Wednesday, January 15 at 10/9c. The channel has also revealed the trailer, which you can watch using the player below, and you’ll find the new key art underneath.
Based on the best-selling novels by Lev Grossman, The Magicians centers on a group of friends as they discover their magical abilities and ward off evil creatures who threaten to destroy the magical world they’ve come to know.
Last season, magic was saved, but at a terrible cost: the life of Quentin Coldwater, who died heroically to save his friends – and the world. Julia, Alice, Eliot, Margo, Penny and their friends (and frenemies) must learn to navigate a world without him. Now, a new threat has arisen: in freeing magic, the balance tipped the other way and there’s too damn much of it, and as the excess builds, an apocalypse looms. Can the magicians get their shit together to save the world without Q?
The Magicians stars Stella Maeve, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Hale Appleman, Arjun Gupta, Summer Bishil, Rick Worthy, Jade Tailor, Brittany Curran and Trevor Einhorn. The series is executive produced by John McNamara, Sera Gamble, Henry Alonso Myers, Chris Fisher and Groundswell Productions’ Michael London and Janice Williams.
“We couldn’t be happier or more excited to conjure another year of magic and all it entails — love, hate, loyalty, betrayal, sex, foul language, drugs, battling gods, monsters and the most dangerous enemies of all: other human beings. We have the best writers, producers, directors, cast and crew in the charted multiverse. Here’s how strongly we believe this: anyone who tries to poach a single one of them will be cursed. And we have the voodoo dolls to do it,” executive producers and co-showrunners John McNamara and Sera Gamble said previously.
Magic may be back, but it’s out of control.
