This is the BEST show running on cable!!! It touches on relevant issues we face in todays society. Sometimes in a light manner and sometimes in the darkest, evilest persona of ourselves. I cannot express how much I know this show has touched other people’s lives just as it has mine so for the love of the world, keep it on for as long as the actors wish to do it. In the ****** life we continue to live in, The Magicians is a great way to escape if only for an hour!!! Long live High King Margo

It was renewed for season four. You should not be surprised.
The best season yet, imo. Definitely keep it.

Please do more seasons at least one more I need to know what happens.
I’m currently binge watching the first 2 seasons on DVR, and it gets better all the time. Please let the story run it’s course.
Please cancel it.

And all of Syfy’s show ratings are close to one another, with only the lower rated ones being considered for cancellation, as it should be. I’m glad SyFy doesn’t think it should can 9/10 of their shows because someone thinks it’s a “failure” not to do so.
Then how do you decide if someone is doing a good job or not, and what do you use to decide if they should be FIRED? SYFY isn’t close to canning 9/10 of their shows. The ratings for a lot of these shows would NEVER have been acceptable. If the ratings are declining every year, do you try and come out with better programming people want to see or do you continue to be the network where FAILURE is ACCEPIABLE? The ratings on The Magicians are DOWN this season. Have I called for it to be Cancelled? They are certainly… Read more »
