5Star’s import The Magicians has been picked up by U.S. network Syfy for a fourth season. Thirteen episodes have been ordered for the fourth season, which will premiere next year.
The renewal comes as the third season is presently airing in the United States to solid ratings; with the series frequently rating as one of Syfy’s highest rated shows. 5Star has yet to set a premiere date for the new season on this side of the pond.
Based on the novels by Lev Grossman, The Magicians follows Quentin Coldwater and his 20-something friends as they are thrust into the unfamiliar world of the beautifully enchanting yet mysteriously dangerous Fillory – and places beyond – where they must draw upon their novice skills to save the existence of magic. The drama series is produced by Universal Cable Productions and stars Jason Ralph, Stella Maeve, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Hale Appleman, Arjun Gupta, Summer Bishil, Rick Worthy, Jade Tailor, Brittany Curran and Trevor Einhorn.
