    Telly’s Take

    Although it premiered with mediocre numbers for basic cable, I’m sure BBC America and/or AMC will air season two of A Discovery of Witches. The show premiered on Sky One (in UK and Ireland) in the fall of 2018. In the U.S., it then debuted on the Shudder, Sundance Now, and AMC Premium streaming platforms in January of this year. It has since been renewed for both a second season and a third, on Sky and the streaming services. Parent-company AMC Networks thought enough of its streaming performance that they decided to simulcast it on BBCA and AMC. So, I can’t imagine season two won’t show up on at least one of the two cable networks next year. I’ll keep an eye out for news and will update this page with breaking developments.
