Based on the All Souls trilogy written by Deborah Harkness, A Discovery of Witches is your next favorite fantasy drama to binge. This U.K. based series has it all: witches, vampires, and drama, but without the sappy love triangles of Twilight to drag the plot down.

Following historian and witch Diana Bishop (played by Teresa Palmer), she attempts to uncover the secrets of the Ashmole 782. Along the way, she meets Matthew Clairmont (played by Matthew Goode), who offers to help her in her quest to uncover its secrets.

But there's one problem: Matthew is a vampire, and as a witch, Diana was taught never to trust a vampire. But can she uncover the Ashmole's secrets without him?

The first season launched with some success, though it's become increasingly popular lately. If you haven't already watched the first season, here's how to watch A Discovery of Witches online.
