What is the reason for the cancellation of A Discovery of Witches?
The Sky fantasy series A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES is about to return for its third and final season, but why is it coming to an end?
Season three of A Discovery of Witches will premiere on Sky Max and NOW on Friday, January 7th. The new season is bittersweet, as it is also the final series of the historical fantasy drama.
Some fans had hoped for more from the series, but Sky has confirmed that it will end here.
A Discovery of Witches has become one of Sky’s most popular series since it first aired in 2018.
Last year, the network announced that season three would be the final one, bringing the saga to a close.
While some fans had hoped for the show to last a little longer, the majority should not be surprised.
The show is based on a series of books by Deborah Harkness, with one book from the All Souls Trilogy being adapted each season.
Season three brings the third and final book to the small screen, with seven episodes telling the story.
As a result, it appears that the showrunners intended to faithfully adapt the books within the confines of three seasons from the start.
Of course, some fans are still hoping for more, and it’s not out of the question that Sky will consider a sequel.
Despite the fact that there are only three original books, Harkness did write a fourth, Time’s Convert.
Because it shifts the focus away from Matthew Clairemont (Matthew Goode) and Diana Bishop (Teresa Palmer), the story is more of a spin-off than a direct continuation.
Instead, it picks up in the present day with Marcus Whitmore (Edward Bluemel) and Phoebe Taylor (Adelle Leonce).
It follows Phoebe’s transformation into a vampire as she decides to join Marcus in his darkness.
There has been no confirmation from Sky, the showrunners, or the cast of the show that a spin-off is being considered.
As a result, viewers should accept that A Discovery of Witches season three is the true end of the series, at least for the time being.
Fans have been looking forward to the third season because it will finally answer some of the burning questions that have remained unanswered after the first two seasons.
“In the third and final installment,” says the official synopsis.
