First look at A Discovery of Witches season 2 confirms epic time jump to Elizabethan England

HERE is a first look at A Discovery of Witches season two, as the series confirms epic time jump to Elizabethan England. 

Adapted from Deborah Harkness’s All Souls book trilogy, the second installment will return to Sky One in January. 

Fans of the books know that protagonists Diana (a witch) and Matthew (a vampire) travel to 16th-century London at the end of season one. 

The trailer for season two confirms the couple made the leap successfully where they continue their search for The Book of Life and a powerful witch to help Diana realise her true potential.

The first-look images for the second series show Diana and Matthew exploring Elizabethan England, looking incredible in their traditional outfits. 

While in the past, Diana, played by Teresa Palmer, and Matthew, played by Matthew Goode, seek out the help of powerful witch Goody Alsop – set to be portrayed by Doctor Who actress Sheila Hancock.

They will also hang out with Matthew’s good friend Kit Marlowe – based on the real-life poet and playwright who appears as his daemon best friend. 

Victoria actor Tom Hughes has been confirmed to play the poet, and he will be joined by Outlander star Steven Cree, Hancock and The Following's James Purefoy.

Purefoy will play Matthew's stepfather Philippe De Clermont, who is the founder of strange business, the Congregation, while Cree portrays vampire Gallowglass De Clermont.

The Sky One series has been commissioned for a third season, meaning the series should be able to conclude as per the books. 

For those who haven’t seen the show, A Discovery of Witches is a love story set in our world but one which is shared with the declining species of witches, vampires and daemons. 

A Discovery of Witches returns January 8, 2021 to Sky One. You can catch up on season one on NOW TV.
