British television program A Discovery of Witches has witnessed success since it was released back in 2018. The tv show based on the All Souls trilogy by Deborah Harkness smartly grounds its flights of fancy with a lived-in authenticity and harnesses the chemistry between its two star-crossed leads to make for a promising foray into the occult. The season one of A Discovery of Witches managed to bag over 2 million views which is decent. It received positive critical acclaim and has a 94 percent approval rate on Rotten Tomatoes.
Jane Tranter said: “We were absolutely thrilled that A Discovery of Witches was such a hit with viewers. There was a real sense of community throughout the run as fans old and new joined together to watch each week.”
“We cannot wait to continue the journey with them and, as the show continues to sell around the world, bring a global fanbase to these engaging and fascinating characters.”
After seeing the success of season1, Sky One renewed A Discovery of Witches for a second and third series, in November 2018. However, the shooting of subsequent season didn’t start until July 2019. It was scheduled to launch in later parts of 2020. However, due to coronavirus pandemic, production has stopped, and now release pf season 2 will see a delay. As per the reports, A Discovery of Witches will be released in the first quarter of 2021.
“Final day of UK filming for season 2 today! We can’t wait for you to experience the magic onscreen in 2020!”
