at . Comments

Fans of The Magicians can breathe a must needed sigh of relief. 

SyFy's granted our wish for a third season!

Based on Lev Grossman's bestselling fantasy trilogy, the magical drama centers on Brakebills University where students gifted with magical abilities hone their craft.

Margo Crowns Quentin - The Magicians Season 2 Episode 1

Season 2, which will wrap its run on April 19, is up 15 percent in the 18-49 demo from Season 1.

Traveling to the fairy tale world of Fillory, Eliot, Margo, Quentin, and Alice were elevated to royalty. Thanks to quirky gods Umber and Ember, only children of Earth could sit on the kingdom's thrones.

Unfortunately, things went downhill from there, starting with Alice's "death."

On The Magicians Season 2 Episode 3, Alice went full-blown Niffin. She gave up her soul in order to have enough power to defeat the Beast.

After sharing a body with Quentin, until it nearly killed both of them, Q freed his love so she could explore the world in her new form.

But then, in the quest to find her own shade, Julia rescued Alice's on The Magicians Season 2 Episode 11. The jury's still out on whether Quentin will be able to reunite the two.

While the Beast got what he deserved, Reynard the Fox, the trickster god that raped Julia on The Magicians Season 1 Episode 13, still roams free. And now he's been reunited with his son, a powerful senator.

Julia, Kady, and Penny are doing everything in their power to find a way to bring him down. But Penny's had a rough year of his own. He lost his magic after trifling with the River Watcher in Fillory.

In a desperate effort to get his magic back, he signed his life away to the Order of Librarians.

Unable to leave Fillory, Eliot learned to be a leader. He also discovered he would soon be a father. In order to give his child everything, Eliot made it his mission to save Fillory.

But that turned out to be easier said than done. A rival kingdom attempted a hostile takeover. Then, Margo unintentionally bargained away Eliot's unborn child in exchange for help from the fairies.

The High Queen attempted to undo the mistake on her own, but once Eliot learned the truth, he had his bestie locked up in the dungeon on The Magicians Season 2 Episode 11

Not to mention Julia's carrying around Alice's shade, and Senator Gaines wants to team with Kady to stop his father. But can he be trusted?

The Magicians Quotes

Margo: I love that bear.
Fray: So do I.
Eliot: Yeah, horray for bears, but we were kind of having a moment.
Margo: No, honey, she loves him.
Eliot: So, uh, not bear boss? Bear... boyfriend? Is that a thing in Fillory?
Margo: Apparently very taboo, but like I told Humbledrum, as long as it's consensual, if I got my way, I'd say go hog-wild or bear-wild or bull-wild. He's very concerned about getting your approval. I don't think he quite gets that you're not even Fray's real dad.
Eliot: Well, then. I will say what I wish my father had said to me. I'm so happy you're dating a bear.

Dean: Snuck a box of Oreos.
Quentin: Magicians can't eat Oreos?
Dean: Diabetics can't eat Oreos.
