The Magicians is preparing for the Season 3 renewal rat race. Speaking to THR, showrunner Sera Gamble confirms that the Season 2 writers room is now open, and hints at the future of the series as it navigates the book timeline in Season 2 and (perhaps) beyond:
Have you talked about where to pick up in season two?
We just started the room recently. We’re all in there tossing out our most insane ideas and we’re picking up off a cliffhanger that’s pretty severe. So dealing with what happens next will probably be the first thing we do in season two. But we’re lucky on this show because we have a wealth of material – three books – to draw from. I’ve certainly been on TV shows where we didn’t have the ability to just flip open a book to a passage we remembered and talk about how to build a story out of it. So we’re having a really good time in the writers’ room. Everything is still on the table right now.
Have you discussed ways for Alice to continue with this story given her ending in the books?
Yes, we have. And we’ve talked a lot about that section of the book and a lot about the future of that character. Without spoiling things, we love the stories in the books, and we try to capture the spirit of the stories. We might tell some of this the same way and we might tell some of it a little differently.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the status of The Magicians Season 3…
