Sky One’s A Discovery of Witches will make it to U.S. and Canadian TV screens. What do you need to know about the latest book adaptation?
A Discovery of Witches is the latest book adaptation to make it to TV. Produced by Bad Wolf, the company behind Doctor Who and Torchwood, the show will air on Sky One in the UK. During an appearance at San Diego Comic-Con, the panel confirmed that the show will air in the U.S. and Canada on Sundance Now and Shudder simultaneously. It’s the first partnership for SVOD.
The bad news is we’re still waiting for a release date for the eight-episode series. There wasn’t even a hint of one at SDCC 2018. It will air in the UK from Sept. 14.
Based on the All Souls trilogy by Deborah Harkness, the series will star Downton Abbey and The Crown‘s Matthew Goode, Hacksaw Ridge‘s Teresa Palmer, and Doctor Who‘s Alex Kingston. It’s a series about witches and vampires, love and loss, and so much more.
