Syfy’s enchanting TV series has painfully come to an end; the cable channel has canceled the TV series, making the fifth season, which aired April 1st, the series finale. The captivating novel series by Lev Grossman was adapted for TV by Sera Gamble (You) and John McNamara and it has been entertaining viewers since the first season was released in December 2015. The fantasy series has received an average rating of 91% on Rotten Tomatoes over the course of its five-year run.
The show producers made it known that The Magicians is ending because they couldn’t continue with the story. However, convincing another company to pick up the series could prove challenging as streaming services are presently focused on new and flashy shows rather than continuing existing series. The show’s producer Gamble expresses her view of the cancelation saying: “We had a sense going into this season that Syfy, in particular as our first platform, was kind of hitting the point of ‘the cup is full, and there’s no more room.”
