Syfy announced today that The Magicians has been renewed for a second season. The fantasy drama, which is adapted from the novel of the same name, has fared well through its first three episodes with an average of 1.7 million viewers (factoring in 3 days of delayed viewing). The series has also seen its younger audience of adults 18-34 grow consecutively over each episode.
The cable network has ordered another 13 episodes of The Magicians for Season 2, matching its first-season total. Look for Season 2 to premiere some time in 2017.
