THE MAGICIANS Renewed For Season 5

Everyone’s favorite haphazard magic users aren’t leaving our televisions anytime soon.

Just prior to the release of Season 4 of The Magicians, SyFy has announced the show’s Season 5 renewal.

“We couldn’t be happier or more excited to conjure another year of magic and all it entails — love, hate, loyalty, betrayal, sex, foul language, drugs, battling gods, monsters and the most dangerous enemies of all: other human beings,” Showrunners John McNamara and Serena Gamble said in a statement shared via TVLine . “We have the best writers, producers, directors, cast and crew in the charted multiverse. Here’s how strongly we believe this: Anyone who tries to poach a single one of them will be cursed. And we have the voodoo dolls to do it.”

The new season will see one big addition that we know of so far: Henry Alonso Myers will join McNamara and Gamble as a co-showrunner.

Season 4 of The Magicians will follow the Brakesbills University crew after Dean Fogg wiped their memories and gave them all new identities. Not to mention that a monster has taken over Eliot and it maaaaay be about to kill Quentin. But hey– at least the magic is back in a very limited fashion, right? *gulp*

The new season begins tomorrow, January 23rd on SyFy at 9pm EST.
