If magic excites you, The Magicians, based on Lev Grossman’s best-selling novels is now available on iflix and members and binge watch all 13 episodes of the first season.
To celebrate this momentous occasion, iflix held a private screening of the first episode of The Magicians at The Canvas. It was a cosy and intimate setting with beanbags and array of enchanting treats to munch on while watching the show.
Straight from the US, The Magicians centres on Quentin Coldwater, a brilliant grad student who is chosen to attend Brakebills University for Magical Pedagogy. It’s a secret upstate New York institution that specializes in teaching magic.
In this magical world, Coldwater slowly learns that the magical fantasy world he used to read about as a kid is real and danger is just lurking around the corner. The Magicians is a combination of self-discovery, romance, a little bit of horror and a whole lot of magic.
The hit series is also renewed for a second season set to air in 2017. With a variety of series centred around the world of magic, it would be interesting to see how the show pans out and how it will set itself apart from other magic-related shows.
The Magicians joins iflix’s growing slate of exclusive first run including multi-award winning Mr. Robot, Difficult People and Hunters. The company has also further secured exclusive rights to various other future series from Universal Cable Productions that will launch in the coming years.
