A Discovery of Witches Season 2: a pandemic is definitely not going to stop Teresa Palmer & Matthew Goode from coming back with a banging sequel.

The popular British romantic fantasy series will be returning after two years

A Discovery of Witches is the British TV adaptation of Deborah Harkness’ “All Souls” trilogy novel. The TV show has been written by Kate Brooke, Tom Farrelly, Charlene James, and Sarah Dollars. It has been produced by Sky Productions and Bad Wolf. The show stars Teresa Palmer and Matthew Goode in the lead roles, along with Edward Bluemel, Louise Brealey, Malin Buska, Aiysha Hart, Owen Teale, Alex Kingston, and Valerie Pettiford.


Season 2 details

The second season will be an adaptation of the second novel “Shadow of Night.” The production has been completed and the makers are planning to release it in Fall 2020, and it will be done so, if no further complications due to the pandemic occurs.


Season 1 showed us the story of Diana Bishop (played by Palmer), who was a former witch but left that life behind due to many reasons and worked as a historian ever since. But her new work led her once again to the life she left behind when she comes across a bewitched manuscript at the Oxford library. She realises that she will have to confront her past and histories in order to solve this dilemma.

Her journey led her to meeting Matthew Clairmont (played by Goode), who is a vampire and the two decide to team up. Despite the bad blood between witches and vampires, the two get along well and even fall in love.


The show became one of the most watched shows in Sky One and had around two million viewers, which resulted in it getting renewed immediately for season two. With season two appearing, there will be no doubt that the third and final season, based on the third book, “The Book of Life” will also be following suit.
