'The Magicians' Season 4: Return Date For The Next Season

SYFY plans to kick off the New Year with a bang… of magic, that is! The Magicians have been renewed for a fourth season comprising of 13 episodes. There is no official confirmation when, however, the rumor is we can expect the new season to air mid-January, early 2019. Official confirmation and trailer expected to drop this fall. After the most successful season to date, here’s what we can expect from the next installment!
For those who are curious about the show and looking to see what all the hype is about… you’re in for a treat and can stream previous seasons on SYFY.com now. According to SYFY, the show,

 “Based upon Lev Grossman’s best-selling books, The Magicians centers around Brakebills University, a secret institution specializing in magic. There, amidst an unorthodox education of spell casting, a group of twenty-something friends soon discover that a magical fantasy world they read about as children is all too real— and poses grave danger to humanity.”


What Could The Magicians Season 4 Be About?


Big things are in store for The Magicians next season now that magic is back and the gang has absolutely no memory of who they are, what they accomplished, or even that magic is real. Literally anything can happen from this point. Hell, they don’t even know their own names! It’s one thing to get screwed over by a power hungry institution, that happens all the time, but to bring back magic only to have it used against you is a pretty nasty turn of events.
The first major problem, there is no High King in Fillory now that Margo has no memory of her life (and going by the name Janet). The only one there is Fen, serving as interim High King, who I expect will have to wait a lot longer than expected to relinquish the royal duty. This puts everyone in jeopardy especially since Margo and Eliot just won back the trust of the country and everyone was finally on the same page.
I would think Alice, now prisoner of The Library, will run into Penny (the real Penny) who is still trapped down there and unable to leave due to his lack of a physical body and the contract he signed. Alice is the only one who still has her memories so if Penny finds her somehow, that can be a starting point to find the others and somehow reverse what was done to their memories.
The Library is now in control of who gets magic. This seemed to be a shady deal made by Dean Fogg in order to get his school back, assuming Irene McAllister is still running things behind the scenes. This next season has so much potential to explore how magic, even when believed to be regulated, can cause unforeseen ramifications. Not to mention, the only magicians strong enough to help if shit hits the fan won’t be able to… not yet anyway.

How Has This Season Impacted What’s To Come?


The women really took center stage this season, Margo in particular, winning the first ever Fillorian election becoming High King. Julia became a literal god and freed a collective of enslaved faeries. Kady went to the Underworld and back in attempts to save Penny. Alice for the first time has no magic and therefore is uncertain of her place in the world and whom she should trust.
Things were a bit tougher for the men of magic this go around. Eliot lost his crown in Fillory, along with his kingdom. Quentin can’t seem to reconnect with Alice and a fling with Poppy definitely didn’t help his cause. Penny died and got stuck in the astral plane while his body burned… only to have Penny 23 (the 23rd version of himself from the 40 time loops) assume his place.
If this season was about building our heroes up, it ended by tearing them down. There’s a monster on the loose, and I have a feeling the creature inside Eliot isn’t the only dangerous thing lurking in the shadows now that magic is back. We trust in institutions to keep us safe, but in the end, it was those very institutions that took advantage of the students’ willingness to bring back magic. Like the Fairy Queen always said… deals come with a cost.
I’m excited for The Library to learn how impossible it is to control magic, along with Dean Fogg realizing that bartering his students for his own school back would only come back to bite him. It was definitely a topical season, right down to the Harvey Weinstein references. The Magicians were on their A-game and I expect nothing less from Sera Gamble & Lev Grossman in the future.
