ka_05_adow_s03

The third and final season of A Discovery of Witches, based on The Book of Life, the third book in Deborah Harkness’ supernatural All Souls Trilogy, premieres in the UK on January 7, 2022 (on Sky Max and NOW) and in the US on January 8, 2022 (on streamers AMC+, Shudder and Sundance Now). Season 3 consists of 7 episodes.

There are currently no plans to film Harkness’ 4th book about Diana and Matthew’s world, Time’s Convert, which tells the story of Matthew’s son, Marcus Whitmore. Harkness is working on more books in this universe, so let’s hope for another trilogy which can be filmed together!

Now that season 3 is almost upon us, here’s a collection of season 3 trailers, photos and interviews for those who want a sneak peek.

Mild spoilers for season 3 follow, it should go without saying.

From the press release:

In the final series of A Discovery of Witches, Matthew (Matthew Goode) and Diana (Teresa Palmer) return from their trip to 1590 to find tragedy at Sept-Tours. They must find the missing pages from the Book of Life and the Book itself before it’s too late. Their enemies are gearing up against them, and a monster from Matthew’s past who has been lying in wait will return for revenge.

The series features a strong ensemble cast including Matthew Goode, Teresa Palmer, Owen Teale, Malin Buska, Alex Kingston, Aiysha Hart, Edward Bluemel, Lindsay Duncan, Peter McDonald, Trevor Eve, Gregg Chillin, Adelle Leonce, Tanya Moodie, Daniel Ezra, Toby Regbo, Steven Cree, Jacob Ifan, Ivanno Jeremiah, Greg McHugh, Olivier Huband, Paul Rhys and Parker Sawyers.
