Following the recent announcement that Felicia Day would be joining the cast of The Magicians on SyFy, fans have been eagerly awaiting news concerning the upcoming third season of the popular fantasy series.

After short teaser trailers and hints were posted on Twitter pointing toward a January premiere date, a first look trailer and official release date were announced earlier this week (November 20).

The trailer details the harsh reality that is a world without magic. As magic continues to die, the situation becomes dire, leading the characters on a large-scale quest to restore the world to what it was before. Introducing new characters and scenarios, as well as glimpses of experiments, travel, and fighting it’s obvious that Quentin, Alice, Eliot, Margo, Julia, and Penny will need to work together in order to restore magic by collecting keys.

The trailer also pays homage to some of the witty and charming aspects that have given the adaptation Lev Grossman’s voice, including references to other fantasy works, including Harry Potter.

Each main character is also given a title, and while some point toward their natural abilities, others are left up to interpretation and suggest that something much darker is on the way.

Margo, the one-eyed conqueror; Penny, the traveler; Kady, the warrior; Quentin, the fool; Julia, the god-touched; and Alice, the torture artist.

Time will tell where this season of The Magicians is headed, but so far, it looks like it might be the best season yet.

The Magicians returns Wednesday, January 10, 2018 on SyFy.

In the meantime, be sure to keep an eye on the official Magicians twitter accountΒ as they have been dropping hints, clues, and images from the upcoming season, sending fans on a quest of their own.
