The spoilers for The Magicians are here.
Our fascination with The Magicians began in December of 2015, and we’ve been transfixed ever since.
The show was cancelled by Syfy in April 2020, much to the dismay of its die-hard fans, after five seasons on the air.
Co-creator John McNamara told TVInsider that the episode “played out kind of the way it’s played out practically every season.
“With the exception of seasons four and five, we never knew if we would be picked up. With every event there is always a tight line between what it brings in and what it costs, and there was a lot of talk about how to balance the two.
“And as the show’s creators, we recognise that,” co-creator Sera Gamble added. Syfy, as our initial platform, seemed to be reaching the point where “The cup is full and there is no more room,” when we entered this season.
It’s not going to expand in terms of revenue, it’s not going to decline in terms of revenue, but it’s going to cost more,” McNamara said.
It’s possible that another network or streaming service may save The Magicians.
Everything you need to know is outlined here.
Season 6 of “The Magicians” will premiere on what date?
In the 18 months since Syfy pulled the plug on The Magicians, fans anticipated that a streaming service like Netflix would step in and save the show from cancellation, but no such news has emerged, making a revival of the magical series even less probable.
At the moment of cancellation, Syfy’s comment sounded like a final one:
‘The Magicians’ has been a member of the Syfy family for five amazing seasons,” the network said in a statement (via Variety). John McNamara and Sera Gamble and Henry Alonso Myers and Lev Grossman and our entire outstanding cast, crew, writers, and directors are all to be thanked as we near the end of this trip.” Finally, we want to thank the fans for their overwhelming support and enthusiasm.. As a result of your kindness, magic will always be a part of us.”
Who will be among the cast of “Magicians” season 6?
A return to television would be welcomed by all of the show’s major players if it were to happen.
Julia Wicker is played by Stella Maeve.
• Alice Quinn (Olivia Taylor Dudley)
Ellie Waugh, played by Hale Appleman
Bill Adiyodi portrayed by Arjun Gupta
In the role of Margo Hanson, Summer Bishil portrayed by
• Henry Fogg (Rick Worthy)
• Kady Orloff-Diaz, played by Jade Tailor
• Brittany Curran portrayed Fen.
Josh Hoberman is played by Trevor Einhorn in the film.
Stella Maeve, Rick Worthy, and Brittany Curran have all gone on to other projects, including a new drama about cult leader Charles Manson’s female followers, and a sci-fi series starring Brittany Curran.
How Stella Maeve remembers filming the series was asked in 2019. (via Showbiz Junkies).
“I’m at a loss to name a favourite of all time. There is a good chance it will have something to do with Jason (Ralph, who portrayed Quentin). The first season he convinced me he was wearing a full head of hair. This is the final episode of this season, and I decided to check it out.’ He performed a hair-moving illusion. Where does your skin move the most? That made me gasp and say, “Oh my gosh, it is indeed a wig.” That was not the case. For me, it was a life-changing experience. “Whoa, everything I thought I knew I didn’t,” I thought.
What can we expect from The Magicians season 6?
A whole new world opened up for the show with the death of Jason Ralph’s protagonist in season 4.
“It’s not that Quentin’s journey is finished on The Magicians,” executive producer Sera Gamble said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. After Quentin Coldwater’s death and Jason Ralph’s departure as a series regular, the show’s future is centred on its repercussions.
Jason has left the show, and Quentin is dead, and much of season five is about what happens next, just like when someone dies in our lives, the next season of our lives is about what follows..”
According to the source material, Syfy has run out of storylines to adapt from the novels, therefore it’s no longer useful in projecting future seasons.
Is there a release date yet for the Magicians season 6 trailer?
Season six’s trailer will not be available due to the show’s cancellation (and no season six, either).
Seasons 1 to 5 of The Magicians are accessible on Prime Video.
