Ahead of the debut season of Sky’s UK drama “A Discovery of Witches” landing on Sundance Now and Shudder this coming January, Deadline reports tonight that the AMC Networks streaming services have also acquired the just-ordered second and third seasons of the series, which will arrive here in the States after they’ve aired in the UK.
From the best-selling trilogy of novels, “A Discovery of Witches” stars Lights Out‘s Teresa Palmer and Stoker‘s Matthew Goode. She’s a witch. He’s a vampire. And they’re in love.
The only problem? Inter-species romance is forbidden in this world. Well damn.
“Diana Bishop, historian and witch, accesses Ashmole 782 and knows she must solve its mysteries. She is offered help by the enigmatic Matthew Clairmont, but he’s a vampire and witches should never trust vampires.”
In the second season, written by Sarah Dollard and Susie Conklin, Matthew and Diana are hiding in time in the fascinating and treacherous world of Elizabethan London, where they must find a powerful witch teacher to help Diana control her magic and search for the elusive Book of Life.
