News & Interviews for A Discovery of Witches: Season 2
Both its fantasy and romance are too weighted down in season two; in its dedication to recreating the historical setting of Elizabethan London, the series loses some of its magic.
Enthusiastically bonkers, it made for perfect New Year hokum.
Gorgeously executed, generously cast and visually pleasing, it's hey-nonny-nonsense from start to finish.
It now offers a quite evocative rendering of 16th-century England. But it's not very anything. Its pulse is much too steady.
If you are seeking some harmlessly enjoyable escapism from real life, and brooding vampire love stories are your cup of tea, I would recommend switching off the real world peril for a while and checking out some fantasy peril instead.
Matthew Goode and Teresa Palmer are eerily masterful, and they now get to timeshift!
The casting is perfection, and of the seven episodes I've seen so far, it is that time that swells my heart.
Casual viewers who were here for the sartorial style, sizzling sexual tension and supernatural hi-jinx might find A Discovery of Witches season two all just a touch dour.
This season isn't just about Diana controlling her magic and finding the Book of Life. It's about finally understanding just who Matthew Clairmont is.
Full of drama and intrigue, but not on account of the plot! Really, it is the costuming, cinematography and music that captures our attention and makes our eyes widen to saucers.
Goode seems right at home in the Elizabethan trappings of Season 2, which enables him to bring out new shades of Matthew that range from an intense darkness, to perhaps more surprisingly, a bit of levity.
A Discovery of Witches just about holds it together, with the world-building and performances compelling enough to pull you through the new complex web of spies, witches, religious vampires and historical figures to focus on Matthew and Diana's story.
Audience Reviews for A Discovery of Witches: Season 2
3d agoIf you liked the books, I fear you will not like the season. The series differs from Book 2 so that the characters of Matthew and Diana have no depth or reason to believe they could make the world better and break through the predjudice of mankind. Very disappointed, the acting is very flat as well.
Feb 20, 2021First season was masterpiece and i love it still! Second is way more developed but also lost in some moments, but overall i do enjoy in every episode.. I hope 3rd will be soon and it will blown all bad witches in to hell...as other's bad creatures. Super
Feb 16, 2021The costume and set design is absolutely stunning. The actors did an excellent job bringing these characters to life. I adore everything about this series. Can't wait for season 3, 4, and 5.
Feb 11, 2021Great.Don't miss it!
Feb 09, 2021I read approx. 125-140 books a year, and approx. a billion films;) what I have done for many years, exactly this series I read in 2016 in Danish is called the series "Heksenat" or in english "Witchcraft". The series is amazingly well written, so well written that when I start watching a series on HBO nordic "A Discovery of Witches" I start thinking already in the second episode, that series I had then seen !! unnoticed that the series had not been shown in Denmark before 2020; ?? Then I had to check if I had become demented or worse .. Seems the series is wildly well made and it is true to the books, the actors are satme well cast, it all just goes up, the series, the books, and it is rare in this world..
Jan 28, 2021Omg! It's just as amazing as season 1! Can't wait for season3!!!! Hurry up😁❤😁❤
Jan 27, 2021Great reproduction of the books with a great, if not a bit rushed, plot line. I liked the inclusion of the present time and its shenanigans which wasn't shown in the books. Diana's abilities however were played down in the show nothing to what they were in the books making her seem like a queen rather than the goddess made flesh.
Jan 27, 2021I lowkey hate this new trend of having just 8/9 episodes for season. In shows like these, it just means that part of the plot line is under developed, it feels rushed to the viewer. Despite that, and even though I preferred the first season, it's a good show.
Jan 19, 2021Series 2 is a huge disappointment. Tired old tropes. Man as monster and predator. Nothing new.
Jan 18, 2021Superb production values with a phenomenal acting ensemble headed up by the lovely and compelling Teresa Palmer (Diana Bishop) and incomparable thespian, Matthew Goode (Matthew Clairmont). Showrunners made a brilliant move by also focusing on Matthew Clairmont's dark past and murderous secrets; a source of his own self-tortured guilt which Goode delivers in a tour-de-force performance. This is high-end fantasy drama at its best!
