The Season 3 finale of The Magicians left most viewers going, “Wait WHAT? Oh, oh no! Oh yay! OH, OH GOD.” And the teasers for the upcoming season four, premiering on January 23, 2019, has pretty much elicited the same reaction. Our merry band of questers has been scattered throughout the universe (well, throughout New York) and given new identities and new memories, all except for two: Alice, who is locked in The Library, and Eliot, who has been possessed by a mysterious but lethal monster.
From the teaser trailers, it is clear that they will not be these other personalities for long (well, other than Eliot perhaps), but as to the how or the why, that remains to be seen. This season already feels darker, as if that were possible, and this season’s “big bad” may be even worse than Martin Chatwin.
A new teaser trailer was released today, featuring “DJ Hansel” (Penny/Arjun Gupta) trying to comprehend why he can teleport, and Janet (Margo/Summer Bishil) very aptly asking, “What the f*** is going on?” That does seem to be the question, does it not?
Along with the trailer came a new poster, as seen above. Of all the characters, it would seem the one to be most worried about is Eliot. Could he be happy for just a second? Ever?
Check out the trailer below, and make sure to catch up on The Magicians before January 23. Season three will drop on Netflix on December 24.
