Based on Lev Grossman’s book trilogy, The Magicians stars Jason Ralph as Quentin Coldwater, a grad student who gains entrance to an elite magic academy. Stella Maeve, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Hale Appleton, Arjun Gupta, Summer Bishil, Rick Worthy, Anne Dudek, Jade Tailor, and Esme Bianco also star.
Speaking to THR, Gamble said everything’s on the table for season two:
We just started the room recently. We’re all in there tossing out our most insane ideas and we’re picking up off a cliffhanger that’s pretty severe. So dealing with what happens next will probably be the first thing we do in season two. But we’re lucky on this show because we have a wealth of material – three books – to draw from. I’ve certainly been on TV shows where we didn’t have the ability to just flip open a book to a passage we remembered and talk about how to build a story out of it. So we’re having a really good time in the writers’ room. Everything is still on the table right now.”
She added that season two will further explore the world of Fillory:
It’s going to be a psychotic character. It’s one of the really fun things about season two. In the pilot of season one, you got a dream glimpse of Fillory and we’ve teased little pieces of it and finally got to see it in the season finale, but that’s also still a small corner of Fillory. We spend most of our time in the season finale with this family that kind of lives out in the countryside and we haven’t got to court yet. The only part of the castle we’ve seen is the dungeon. So we’ve been talking about it and delving into what these different areas of Fillory are like. Luckily we shoot in Vancouver, which provides us with a lot of natural beauty. If we weren’t in a place where you could go outside and point a camera at really beautiful nature, we would be dead before we started.”
