Coming as absolutely no surprise, Syfy announced yesterday that its fantasy series The Magicians will be returning for a fourth season. That show has performed well for the network thus far this year and has been the top-rated Syfy series since its debut in 2015. It’s numbers are down a little bit from last season, but I assumed that it was a lock for renewal short of disputes over licensing fees or other behind-the-scenes intangibles. The fourth season will comprise thirteen episodes and will air in 2019.
The Magicians is based on the books by Lev Grossman about students attending Brakebills University for Magical Pedagogy and trying to learn how to control their magical powers. It stars Jason Ralph, Stella Maeve, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Hale Appleman, and Arjun Gupta.
Expect more renewal and cancellation announcements as we head into the final months of the current season. Be sure to keep an eye on this site as well as the Cancelled Sci Fi Twitter Site for updates and breaking news.
