US fantasy The Magicians has been renewed for a fifth season ahead of its fourth season premiere.
“The Magicians raised the bar at Syfy and has gained momentum season after season, attracting a new audience to the channel. We are proud of this series as it continues to break the boundaries of storytelling,” said Bill McGoldrick, president of scripted content at NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment.
“We couldn’t be happier or more excited to conjure another year of magic and all it entails — love, hate, loyalty, betrayal, sex, foul language, drugs, battling gods, monsters and the most dangerous enemies of all: other human beings. We have the best writers, producers, directors, cast and crew in the charted multiverse. Here’s how strongly we believe this: anyone who tries to poach a single one of them will be cursed. And we have the voodoo dolls to do it,” said executive producers and co-showrunners Sera Gamble and John McNamara.
The show has also promoted Henry Alonso Myers to co-showrunner for the fifth season.
Season 4 begins in Australia at 7:30pm Wednesday January 30 on Syfy.
