Critic Reviews for The Magicians Season 4

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (7)

This is a show in which inexplicably good-looking people run around trying to kill demons and party with gods, but never at the expense of some Serious Storytelling.

Top Critic

Despite all of this grimness, "The Magicians" is still the funniest fantasy show on TV because it's incredibly self-aware.

Top Critic

You may have a grand plan as you enter the real world, but adult life is messy in a way that makes the idea of planning feel laughable, in a way the series can capture with both grace and humor.

Dec 4, 2019 | Full Review…

Despite its uneven writing and poor treatment of some of its female characters, The Magicians still succeeds in one of its central aims: dismantling the tropes of the fantasy genre and reconfiguring them in ways that are innovative and contemporary.

Dec 4, 2019 | Full Review…

As of the first episode of the fourth season, there still isn't an answer as to how the Brakebills Seven will emerge from that particular conundrum, but there's even better news: The Magicians is still an excellent show.

May 1, 2019 | Full Review…

It was frustrating and unconvincing and potentially irresponsible, yes. But I loved it anyway.

May 1, 2019 | Full Review…

The sudden and devastating loss of Quentin could have been left at him sacrificing himself for the good of the world and his friends, but The Magicians has always been a little more thoughtful than that.

Apr 25, 2019 | Full Review…

The Magicians has done something I have never experienced on a show before: It gave me a chance to grieve.

Apr 25, 2019 | Full Review…

I'm pretty damn sick of watching every character who loves like me, who looks like me, who explores the bounds of their sexuality like me, die.

Apr 25, 2019 | Full Review…

I am having a really hard time being optimistic about what's ahead. I hope I have to eat my words and it's the best season ever, but woof, you guys. This was a tough finale for a show I really love.

Apr 18, 2019 | Full Review…

This season of Syfy's The Magicians has been a journey full of huge powerful highlights.

Apr 18, 2019 | Full Review…

If anything, I wish these new identities were established a little more, but I appreciate this wasn't resolved in this first episode. A monster's on the loose, and the knowledge these magicians could use to save themselves are locked away.

Audience Reviews for The Magicians: Season 4

  • May 19, 2020
    fantastic until the finale, then the show doesn't really make any sense anymore. How can you kill off the main character and keep the show going, it was worse than anything GoT ever did.
  • Feb 14, 2020
    Why the hell did they kill the main character for no god damm reason
  • Feb 11, 2020
    great once i started season 1 i knew i had to see it thru to the end
  • Feb 05, 2020
    Another season of amazingly creative story telling. I was interested in how they were going to handle such a powerful monster that even the gods feared it but the results were extremely satisfying
  • Jan 31, 2020
    Sorry to see Q go, and I have read a lot of negative comments about how Q was written off because he was a bi character bla, bla, bla, one: Eliot is gay and he is still there and one of my favorite characters. two: Q was necessary to get the whole thing going, but there are still a lot of good characters in the show and I can not wait to see the next season.
  • Jan 30, 2020
    This season was really, really meh... and then the musical episode 10 was puke city. It didn't start to get mildly interesting until episode 4 to begin with. It totally feels like intermission unto eternity - just place - holding. Granted, lots of things happened, but nothing had the charm of earlier seasons. The chemistry between Qentin and Eliot is always beautiful and intense, but not enough to pull it out of the Bog of Eternal Stench. There were way less 'golden lines', than we'd had in previous season's scripts. I won't spoil the end, but I'm seriously doubting as to the wisdom of bothering to watch another season. Only Hale Appleman keeps me tied to this.
  • Jan 18, 2020
    Took me awhile to get caught up. Watched 1-3 seasons fast then stalled in 4. But powered through this month. What a fun last few episodes to include a musical that left me laughing so well done and I don't even like music. Sad to see Q go not sure how season 5 will be. Episode 1 Season 5 was a good start. Overall season 4 was good fun if not a bit complex. Fin! remains a favorite, glad she is still around.
  • Jan 17, 2020
    My favorite series, looking at magic from a more dark and realistic perspective, with a great cast of characters, interesting plotlines, and still having enough moments to breathe and have fun with the characters.
  • Jan 11, 2020
    Darker than the previous ones
  • Jan 04, 2020
    My favorite season so far. The characters are each coming into their own and expanding upon relationships. I really hope it's picked up after limited season 5 comes out.
