Before you get your hopes up, we’re (sadly, oh so sadly) not here to announce a Harry Potter spin-off series. Although I really think someone needs to get on that real quick. I’m looking at you, J.K.!
Even outside of that phenomenal fandom though, the realm of magic is so vast that there’s a plethora of potential creative inspirations to explore and expand. I mean, who said that magic was limited to tricks, illusions, and witches? After all, doesn’t magic pretty much cover what we’d perceive to be unexplainable, supernatural, and mysterious? That could include spells, incantations, potions, sure – but also superpowers, unexplained phenomena, and the occasional vampire, werewolf, or demon, too!
We all need a little magic in our lives every once in a while, even if it is just vicariously through our favorite enchanting TV shows. With that in mind, we’ve put together a comprehensive collection of TV series about witches and magic that explore all types of magic!
The Magicians, SyFy (2015 – 2020)
Welcome to Brakebills University, a secret and magical institution intended to educate its students in all aspects of magic.
Unbeknownst to the twenty-something-year-olds who just want to be regular magicians and enroll at Brakebills, the magical world they thought to be fiction is in fact based on truths – truths that were part of a book series they read as children. Suddenly aware of the all-too-real danger this world poses to their reality, the young magicians fight to strengthen their abilities and protect the world.

WandaVision, Disney+ (2021)
Marvel Cinematic Universe is a phrase that needs no introduction because ever since its inception in 2008 it has given us tales of such superheroes as Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America to name a few. And while most of us associate MCU with movies, Marvel Studios is quickly making leaps into the TV world as well. And they began their foray into the world of television with WandaVision.
WandaVision focuses on two of MCU’s most powerful Avengers – Scarlet Witch and The Vision – and their lives in the idyllic suburban town of Westview, New Jersey. But as it often is when magic is involved, things are not as they seem. And over the course of the 9 episodes, we cycle through various decades and television tropes to not only find out more about MCU’s resident witch Wanda Maximoff but also discover what’s really happening in Westview.

TV show description:
Based upon Lev Grossman’s best-selling books, this supernatural drama is set at the secret, upstate New York, Brakebills University, for students of magical ability.
An outsider, grad student Quentin Coldwater (Jason Ralph), chooses to spend more time immersed in the Fillory and Further fantasy book series — a favorite since childhood — than living his life.
When he and his best friend and crush, Julia Wicker (Stella Maeve), are transported to Brakebills for an entrance exam, their world changes, forever. Based on the use of the powers Quentin never knew he possessed, he is accepted into Brakebills.
After the bright and beautiful perfectionist, Julia, fails her entrance exam, she grows fixated on gaining access to this world, which she should have forgotten, entirely. It is at Brakebills that Quentin and his friends will discover the world of Fillory and Further is far from fictional, and far too dangerous.
Shy and talented Alice Quinn (Olivia Taylor Dudley) is from a line of powerful magic practitioners. Her confidence grows when she wields her powers, and she resolves not to let her dark past cast a shadow on a bright future.
Loner William “Penny” Adiyodi (Arjun Gupta) is gifted, talented, and easily irked. Who knows the true limits of his abilities?
Opinionated and convinced of his own brilliance, Eliot Waugh (Hale Appleman) looks like he has come by everything easily, but appearances can be deceiving. As far as Eliot is concerned, magic comes from pain.
The tact fairy did not attend the Christening of the blunt Margo Hanson (Summer Bishil). Although skilled at her art, Margo is as dedicated to partying as she is to magic. What secrets is she hiding?
Henry Fogg (Rick Worthy) is a Brakebills University Dean. Brakebills Professor Sunderland (Anne Dudek) serves as Penny’s mentor.

The Magicians season 6 release date updates: Will there be a new season?
The Magicians is a critically acclaimed favorite on Netflix, and many people are more than curious to know everything they can regarding any release date updates for The Magicians season 6, as well as any additional wisdom that can be given on the situation right away!
Ever since the show based on the Lev Grossman novel of the same name published in 2009 premiered on the Syfy channel on Dec. 16, 2015, the show has been a force to be reckoned with for those that love great fantasy television programs. The outstanding writing tells the stirring story of a group of students recruited into a secretive academy in order to learn the art of actual magic, thus introducing them into a wondrous world full of dangers they could never have imagined in their wildest dreams or nightmares.
Every enchanting season of the show has done very well, even garnering impressive scores on Rotten Tomatoes for every iteration of entries. The gorgeously realized visuals and the incredibly enthralling narrative made every mystical episode an adventurous experience from start to finish, especially for the subscribers on Netflix that binge installment after installment, reliving all of the best moments for the Syfy series.
There are so many great things this show has to offer, from its magnetic cast to its exhilarating cliffhangers and everything in between. It’s no wonder people want to know more about the status of The Magicians, especially when it comes to season 6, so below is all the information fans should know regarding the future of the fan-favorite fantasy series.
How many seasons of The Magicians are there?
There are five seasons of The Magicians available to stream on Netflix. That’s right, 65 exceptionally written and well-crafted entries with runtimes ranging from 41-52 minutes in length are ready to stream now.
According to co-creator Sera Gamble in an interview with TVInsider, there is still a lot of potential for the intriguing story fans loved for so long to continue.
“The world was so real that I’m not going to lie, we could go off and tell lots of stories about these characters.”
There is no denying that fans of the Syfy series, which is very popular on Netflix, would not be disappointed by more episodes, a spin-off or even feature films telling more exciting stories from the spellbinding world of The Magicians.
Is there going to be a season 6 of The Magicians?
Unfortunately, there are no plans at the moment for The Magicians season 6. However, when the show was canceled, Syfy released a heartfelt statement thanking the talented crew, creators, cast, writers and everyone else involved in the series stating, “Because of you, magic will be in our hearts forever.”
For fans, that magic is real, and the hope for more episodes will forever remain in their hearts no matter what. It’s very sad news things didn’t work out for The Magicians season 6, but it appears the end was coming, according to co-creator John McNamara during his sit-down with TVInsider.
“It played out kind of the way it’s played out almost every season. With the exception of season four into season five, we never knew whether or not we were going to get picked up. It was always a discussion—never really about the creative—about the financials and you always know, with any show, that there’s this kind of fine line between what it brings in and what it costs.”
Great shows aren’t cheap, and it seems that was one of the reasons The Magicians got the ax before they could reach the coveted season 6 status.
How many episodes of The Magicians season 6 are there?
Each of the five seasons of The Magicians had the same number of episodes which was 13, but if season 6 were to happen, there is a good chance there would be fewer entries this time around. The budget costs were one of the nails in the coffin for the Syfy series, which was confirmed by Gamble’s comments to TVInsider also discussing the end of the show.
“As the creators of the show, we understand that. We had the sense going into this season that Syfy, in particular as our first platform, was kind of hitting the point of, ‘The cup is full and there’s no more room. It’s not going to necessarily expand in terms of revenue, it’s not necessarily going to contract in terms of revenue, but it is going to cost more.”
In order to cut costs for a potential follow-up to the fantasy drama’s farewell tour, it wouldn’t be crazy to get anywhere from six to 10 magical entries for another remarkable run should the show ever get its much-deserved sixth run or a revival of some kind. Of course, this is just speculation and a bit of wishful thinking, but it’s always fun to imagine “what if,” especially when it comes to The Magicians.
When is The Magicians season 6 filming?
There is no way to determine when The Magicians would shoot its sixth season should the order ever come, but it is good to know that another outing has been discussed, so if plans arose to start filming, it wouldn’t take long in the development stages as far as having to start from scratch as far as where the story could go.
Sitting down with the folks at EW, McNamara had this to say regarding where everyone’s heads were at for the future of the series.
“I know [co-showrunner Henry Alonso Myers], [executive producer] Sera Gamble, [executive producer] David Reed, and I were really starting to get excited as we mapped out the broad strokes of what a season 6 should be. It was interesting.”
The industry has been giving out reboots, revivals and comebacks for all sorts of shows, and The Magicians season 6 has just as good a chance as any to score one of these Hollywood welcome back tickets that every fan of the series would love to happen. It is important to remember another outing is a long shot at this point, but there is some relief knowing every installment can be enjoyed on the streaming service Netflix right now!
Will Netflix save The Magicians?
The streaming powerhouse has been known to come in and resurrect a program from oblivion, giving it new life. Designated Survivor lived up to its name before fading away after one Netflix iteration of entries, but Lucifer rose from the underworld to become one of the most-watched and talked about series on the streaming service.
The show’s popularity on the streamer could mean someday Netflix could decide The Magicians season 6 should happen, and fans should be relieved to find out that, as mentioned above, if the call for more episodes comes, McNamara stated in an interview with Entertainment Weekly there is a plan ready to execute should someone have the big bucks to make that magnificent dream a reality.
“We have a document that may someday be available on eBay that is the arc of season 6. I mean, you have to be just optimistic enough to be ready in case someone writes you a big check to produce a season on television.”
There are a lot of shows fans would like Netflix to bring back, like Manifest or Hannibaland yes, of course, The Magicians as well. But unfortunately, the streaming powerhouse can’t save them all, and everyone will have to wait and see what the future holds for the sixth chapter of The Magicians saga.
If anything changes, we will be sure to let everyone know all of the updates regarding The Magicians season 6 as they come out, so keep following us here at Netflix Life.
