A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES
SEASON TWO ARRIVES JANUARY
Thinking of making soon a list of epic shows we can expect in 2021, I, sadly, realised there isn't much to expect. The only series we have
currently scheduled for January is the second season of A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES which will be more epic as the characters witch Diana (atrociously horrible Teresa Palmer) and vampire Matthew (Matthew Goode) have jumped over to the 1590 London in order to protect her and for her to develop her powers in Elizabethan England. The ten episode second run will start on Sky and Now TV January 8th and then January 9th in USA on AMC's streamers Sundance Now and Shudder. Steven Cree joins them as Matthew's nephew Gallowglass De Clermont, a vampire and soldier of fortune, while
James Purefoy will be Matthew's stepfather Philippe De Clermont, commander of the Knights of
Lazarus. Barbara Marten will play a very
angry Queen Elizabeth and Tom Hughes is playwright Kit Marlowe. Sheila Hancock will be elder witch Goody Alsop, with Paul Rhys as Andrew Hubbard, the vampire ruler of London. Michael Lindall is Sir Walter Raleigh!

In Eliza- bethan London
Matthew and Diana's romance faces a barrage of new threats. Diana's unleashed magic takes a dark and frightening turn, while Matthew struggles to re-inhabit the dangerous life he led over four centuries ago. They must overcome deep personal fears and jealousies, baring
secrets to one another if they are to stay alive, stay together and find
a way back to present day.
While Matthew and Diana hide out in Elizabethan London, back in present
day, Diana's beloved aunts, Sarah (Alex
Kingston) and Em (Valarie
Pettiford), must take shelter with Matthew's mother notorious witch
hunter Ysabeau de Clermont (Lindsay Duncan) at her ancestral home,
Sept-Tours. Meanwhile, in Oxford, Marcus (Edward
Bluemel) and Miriam
(Aiysha Hart) take on Matthew's mantle to protect daemons Nathaniel
(Daniel Ezra) and Sophie (Aisling Loftus), whose pregnancy is advancing.
And Gerbert (Trevor Eve), Knox (Owen Teale),
Satu (Malin Buska) and
Domenico (Gregg Chillin) are determined to hunt down every clue they can
to Diana's and Matthew's disappearance, and the secrets their allies
are keeping from them.
