On Jan. 9, American TV viewers started watching A Discovery of Witches Season 2 knowing full well that they have A Discovery of Witches Season 3 to look forward to! Unfortunately, star Teresa Palmer (who plays Diana Bishop in the series) has just confirmed that after Season 3, that's it — there will be no Season 4.
As much as fans will hate to see the series go, it's good to know ahead of time that Season 3 will be the final season. That gives fans a chance to prepare for the ending! (And they have quite a bit of time to prepare, too, since Season 3 probably won't be airing until 2022 at the earliest).
Teresa Palmer confirmed that Season 3 of 'A Discovery of Witches' will be the final season.
"The end of an era," Teresa wrote on Instagram. "Since 2017 I have had the great privilege and pleasure of embodying Diana Bishop of [A Discovery of Witches]. Today I said goodbye to this powerhouse of a character as we rolled on our last shot of the last season of this trilogy." Teresa went on to thank the cast and crew of the show, as well as the fans who watched and loved it. "On to the next adventure with full hearts we go," she said.
Although fans are understandably saddened by the news that there will be no Season 4, it doesn't come as a huge surprise. After all, the series is based on a trilogy of books (the All Souls trilogy by Deborah Harkness) — three seasons kind of makes perfect sense when there are only three books to use as source material.
However, Deborah wrote a fourth book in this so-called “trilogy,” a Marcus-centric book titled Time’s Convert. Could we maybe see a spin-off sometime down the road? Only time will tell.
Season 2 of 'A Discovery of Witches' has Diana and Matthew “baring their darkest secrets.”
“In Elizabethan London, Diana and Matthew’s romance faces a barrage of new threats,” AMC adds. “Diana’s unleashed magic takes a dark and frightening turn, while Matthew struggles to re-inhabit the dangerous life he led over four centuries ago. They must overcome deep personal fears and jealousies, baring their darkest secrets to one another if they are to stay alive, stay together, and find a way back to present day.”
“The 10-part second season finds Diana (Teresa Palmer) and Matthew (Matthew Goode) hiding in time in the fascinating and treacherous world of Elizabethan London,” AMC explains. “They must find a powerful witch teacher to help Diana control her magic, all while searching for the elusive Book of Life.”
The network continues: “While Diana and Matthew hide out in Elizabethan London, back in present day, Diana’s beloved aunts, Sarah (Alex Kingston) and Em (Valarie Pettiford), must take shelter with notorious witch hunter Ysabeau de Clermont (Lindsay Duncan) at her ancestral home, Sept-Tours. Meanwhile, in Oxford, Marcus (Edward Bluemel) and Miriam (Aiysha Hart) take on Matthew’s mantle to protect daemons Nathaniel (Daniel Ezra) and Sophie (Aisling Loftus), whose pregnancy is advancing.”
And don’t forget about Gerbert (Trevor Eve), Knox (Owen Teale), Satu (Malin Buska), and Domenico (Gregg Chillin): That group is “determined to hunt down every clue they can to Diana’s and Matthew’s disappearance, and the secrets their allies are keeping from them,” AMC says.
The supernatural romance TV show’s second season premiered on AMC+, AMC Premiere, Sundance Now, and Shudder. And until the end of the season in March, Season 2 episodes will be released on a weekly basis on U.S. screens just one day after they air on U.K. television.
