We previously reported that Lev Grossman’s The Magicians was coming to television, and we now have a network! SyFy announced the show prior to their upfront presentations earlier today.
Former Supernatural showrunner Sera Gamble and Lois and Clark writer/producer John McNamara are writing the script, and will executive produce the show along with Michael London. London, who produced The Illusionist and Sideways, had optioned Grossman’s novel after it was published in 2009, and originally set it up at Fox before it found a home at SyFy—where it will join other upcoming shows The Expanse, Ascension, 12 Monkeys, and presumably Helix.
The third book in Grossman’s trilogy, The Magician’s Land, is coming out in August, 2014, so get caught up before the show premieres!
