The wait for season 2 of A Discovery of Witches may almost be over…at least for UK viewers.

Metro has confirmed that the coronavirus pandemic will not affect the release of A Discovery of Witches, the magical drama based on the series of novels by Deborah Harkness. According to the news site, Sky TV will serve up a whole host of tv series in the coming months.

It makes sense that A Discovery of Witches is one of them as it completed filming in January.  While this is a happy announcement for UK fans, what does it mean for US viewers?

The paranormal series released in Sept. 2018 on Sky One, but it didn’t become available on streaming until January 2019 when it aired on AMC’s subscription services Sundance Now, Shudder, and AMC Premiere. It finally made its American debut on April 7, 2019 on AMC.

If A Discovery of Witches releases in Sept. 2020, the same schedule could be followed, meaning American viewers won’t get to see the second season until next April unless they subscribe to a streaming service.

The delay has resulted in new viewers discovering the drama, which could extend the series beyond season three. Of course, that would mean going beyond the material Deborah Harkness wrote as there are only three books in the series, but undoubtedly, there will be plenty of stories left to tell, especially since there are so many characters begging for their backstories to be told.

The complete first season of A Discovery of Witches is now available for purchase on Amazon Prime and Google, but it’s unknown whether the complete season 2 will be available for purchase during the initial run. In the meantime, the series is currently available on AMC for viewers who have that channel in their cable TV line-up.
