Sky TV believes so much in its Matthew Goode and Teresa Palmer-led lavish supernatural drama series “A Discovery of Witches” that they have handed out a second and third season order.
Palmer plays a reluctant witch denying her heritage who accidentally discovers a long-lost bewitched manuscript in Oxford’s Bodleian Library, and is immediately thrown into the heart of a dangerous underworld. Goode plays an enigmatic vampire and geneticist while Alex Kingston, Lindsay Duncan and Owen Teale co-star.
In the second season, the pair are now hiding in time in the 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.
The renewal comes after the first season become the biggest drama on Sky One this year. Kate Brooke (“Mr Selfridge”) penned the first season adaptation and was showrunner on the series which will be released in the U.S. on both Sundance Now and Shudder starting January 17th.
