A Discovery of Witches Season 3 preview

The first season is set in and around the city of Oxford and follows the life of Diana Bishop (Teresa Palmer). She is a historian-turned-witch who inadvertently discovers a hidden realm of magic and witchcraft after she reads a manuscript from the Oxford Bodleian Library – one of Europe’s oldest libraries. 

Matthew Goode plays vampire Matthew Clairmont. He falls in love with Diana, despite a long-standing mistrust between witches and vampires. They establish an alliance to preserve the book of life and unravel the secrets it contains while avoiding monsters and evil threats. The first season concludes with Juliette, Matthew’s former lover, attacking him. As Matthew lies dying, Diana makes the ultimate sacrifice, bearing dire consequences.

In season 2, Diana Bishop has used her magic to send herself and Matthew to the safety of 16th century Elizabethan London to escape the clutches of evil witch Peter Knox . She must seek a strong witch to assist her in controlling her abilities and locate the mysterious Book of Life. However, because this time leap transports Matthew to a period when he was a different vampire, spying for the Queen to eradicate witches, things have become more than a little difficult.

Diana and Matthew were wrapping up their experiences in 16th century London at the conclusion of Season 2 and ready to time-travel back to the modern-day Sept Tours. However, they face disaster and when they arrive, leaving us wonderfully poised for season 3.

A Discovery of Witches Season 3 continues the remaining stories on the Deborah Harkness trilogy of All Souls novels. After magically travelling back to 1590, Diana and Matthew must find their way back to the present time to save their loved ones from Peter Knox, especially with the sinister witch’s fascination with Sophie’s newborn baby.

For now, Diana and Matthew’s families are safe within the walls of Sept Tours, but the paramount threat that is Peter Knox proves to be as persistent as ever. Even with Diana being more powerful, will they manage to get back just in time to beat him? Another mystery that needs resolving asap is the vampire who’s been feasting on Oxford residents while Matthew has been MIA. Is vampire Domenico getting closer to discovering the killer’s identity? Tune in to Season 3 to find out.

Moreover, fans will see most of the main characters returning for the final third season. However, fans have yet to know whether other characters introduced in the second season during the Elizabethan era will return for season 3 or not, including Matthew’s nephew, Gallowglass.
