Plot Synopsis

Adapted from Deborah Harkness's "All Souls" trilogy, A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES is a modern-day love story set against the backdrop of Oxford academic life. Historian Diana Bishop, a reluctant witch denying her heritage, accidentally discovers a long-lost bewitched manuscript in Oxford's Bodleian Library, and is immediately thrown into the heart of a dangerous underworld. On her journey, she finds herself tossed into the path of enigmatic vampire and geneticist, Matthew Clairmont, who hides a dark family secret.

Sky One has already renewed A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES for a second and third season. In Season 2, Matthew and Diana are hiding in time in the fascinating and treacherous world of Elizabethan London - here they must find a powerful witch teacher to help Diana control her magic and search for the elusive Book of Life. Back in the present day, Diana's beloved aunts, Sarah and Em, must take shelter with notorious witch-hunter Ysabeau de Clermontat her ancestral home, Sept-Tours. Meanwhile, in Oxford, Marcus and Miriam take on Matthew's mantle to protect daemons Nathaniel and Sophie , whose pregnancy is advancing. Gerbert, Knox, Satu and Domenico are determined to hunt down every clue they can to Diana's and Matthew's disappearance, and the secrets their allies are keeping from them.
