Watch The Magicians


Based on the novels of the same name by Lev Grossman, The Magicians tells the story of a group of twenty-something friends as they embark on an education in magic at the secret and prestigious Brakebills University in New York City. The students have discovered that the magic they read about as children is not only real, but also poses a great danger to all of mankind. The show particularly focuses on Quentin Goldwater, who has been accepted to the University, where he studies and hones his magic skills with the help of his classmates: Alice Quinn, whose parents were magicians; Eliot Waugh, an aggravating and difficult peer; and Penny, Quentin's offbeat roommate. The show also follows the story of Quentin's childhood friend, Julia Wicker, who applied to and was rejected from Brakebills University. However, her desire to learn magic is unabated and she continues her pursuit to learn magic in other, more dangerous places.
