It’s been over two years since A Discovery of Witches wrapped up its first season and the wait is finally over for fans, as the show is finally returning.

It was revealed that the show had been picked up for both a second and third series, and fans have been eagerly waiting for its return after first look pictures dropped of the cast in action.

Season two will see viewers transported to Elizabethan London, where witch Diana Bishop (played by Teresa Palmer) and vampire Matthew Clairmont (Matthew Goode) are on the hunt for a powerful witch to help Diana harness her magic.
