Syfy's The Magicians: Season 1 — Trailer


added: Thu, May 14th '15

SyFy has released an early trailer for "The Magicians," the small-screen adaptation of author Lev Grossman's best-selling fantasy book series.

Described as the grown-up version of "Harry Potter," this 12-episode series centers on a group of New York twenty-somethings, each of whom have their own unique magical powers. Their abilities are worthy enough to earn them admission to the prestigious Brakebills University, where they will learn how to hone their special gifts for the betterment of mankind ... or wipe mankind from existence -- give or take.

Directed by Mike Cahill (Another Earth, I Origins) and written by Sera Gamble (Supernatural, NBC's Aquarius), the show features a cast of relative newcomers, including Jason Ralph, Stella Maeve, Hale Appleman, and Arjun Gupta.

"The Magicians" is set to premiere in 2016.

Quentin Coldwater is a high school senior, but he’s still secretly obsessed with a series of fantasy novels he read when he was little, about the adventures of five children in a magical land called Fillory. Compared to that, everything in his real life just seems gray and colorless. That changes when Quentin finds himself admitted to a very secret, very exclusive college of magic in upstate New York, where he receives a thorough and rigorous education in the practice of modern sorcery. But magic doesn’t bring Quentin the happiness and adventure and meaning he thought it would—until he and his friends make a stunning discovery: Fillory is real.
