Based on a trilogy of books by Lev Grossman, The Magicians follows Quentin Coldwater (Jason Ralph) as he leaves Brooklyn for a secret college of magic in upstate New York, where he and his friends learn how to practice magic and travel to the magic land of Fillory. Other Physcial Kids include Quentin’s friend Eliot (Hale Appleman), Alice (Olivia Taylor Dudley), Julia (Stella Maeve), Margo/known as Janet in books (Summer Bishil) and Penny (Arjun Gupta). Among their teachers are Dean Fogg (Rick Worthy) and Professor Sunderland (Anne Dudek). Other characters: Eliza the paramedic (Esme Bianco) and Penny’s love interest Kady (Jade Tailor).

“Thanks to an extraordinarily gifted creative team of executive producers and our partners at Universal Cable Productions, The Magicians has become a buzzed-about hit, enchanting fans of the novels as well as attracting new and younger audiences to Syfy”, said Syfy and Chiller president Dave Howe.

One of the pleasures of watching this Harry-Potter-crossed-with-Narnia series is seeing different parts of the University of British Columbia campus transformed into the Brakebills University for Magical Pedagogy.
