“It begins with absence and desire. It begins with blood and fear. It begins with the discovery of witches.” Well, if you follow ‘A Discovery Of Witches’ with all your heart, it wouldn’t have taken you a moment to recognize these lines. Directed by Juan Carlos Medina, Alice Troughton, and Sarah Walker, the series is based on Deborah Harkness’s ‘All Souls Trilogy.’ The title of the show is derived and named after the first book in the series. Starring Teresa Palmer, Matthew Goode, Edward Bluemel, Malin Buska, Louise Brealey, Aiysha Hart, Alex Kingston, Owen Teale, and Valarie Pettiford, the show falls in the Fantasy/Romance genre.
‘A Discovery Of Witches’ made its debut in 2018 and aired its episode in September. The show is loved by the audiences because it has all the ingredients of a perfect fantasy show, in balanced proportions. A witch, a vampire, a series of mysteries waiting to be discovered, and many secrets that need to get unveiled. The show keeps the audiences gripped on their screens and, since the beginning, has managed to win hearts. If you’re a fan of ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and have been following it ever since it started airing, then the show is a must-watch for you.
The show begins with the introduction of Diana Bishop, who has had a witchy past. She is currently a historian who works at Oxford’s Bodleian Library. One day, she mistakenly opens a bewitched manuscript which untethers some magic in her which she has been abstaining from. She returns the manuscript to the library but decides to keep the discovery away from anybody’s approach but eventually fails at it. Diana isn’t the only magical being who’s living with humans, there are people like her too.
She comes across Matthew Clairmont, a geneticist, who happens to be a vampire. Diana trusts him, and the two begin a new journey to unveil the mysteries that the manuscript beholds and what it means to the human and the magical beings. As we move forward, the story unfolds the romantic element between the two, and the world of fantasy adds in the colors of love. But their blooming love takes a powerful turn and begins to be a reason for destruction and ends up transporting Diana back in the time of Elizabethan London. Both of them are supposed to find a powerful witch teacher that may help Diana control her magical powers and search for the elusive Book Of Life.
Now that we’ve provided you a sneak peek into the world of Matthew and Diana, there’s a piece of good news for the fans who follow this show. While you’re witnessing the second season on your screens these days, you’re about to get a season 3 too. The show returned with a second season on January 8, 2021, and is currently streaming on the digital platform SonyLiv, AMC, and Amazon Prime. But with the return of the cast, the makes have made it official that the show has been renewed for a third season that will start airing soon.
