Margo (Summer Bishil), Josh (Trevor Einhorn), Fen (Brittany Curran) and Alice (Olivia Taylor Dudley) disappear during the ritual and reappear in the new world they created. The series ends with them preparing to free the people of Fillory, with Margo being named great queen. The Magicians ended up on Syfy this week just a few weeks after the network announced that the series had been canceled. Luckily, the showrunners previously stated that the series had been set up in a way that would work as a season finale or series finale, so the fact that it ended like the latter was not as important as it could have been.
However, for fans who were waiting for the return of a particular character, those hopes were not fulfilled. This is what happened and why Jason Ralph's Quentin never showed up. The magicians have reached the end of the road. But none of them, of which NBC Universal was one, seemed to fit perfectly financially or creatively, according to McNamara.
This wasn't supposed to be the end and it shows. Syfy's announcement that they wouldn't renew The Magicians after five seasons seems to have left showrunners struggling to complete season and series arcs in a 45-minute episode. The result is a series that tries to get the best out of a bad situation, with a hasty final episode that still leaves us with the promise of something else.

Meanwhile, if you want to binge, the first few seasons of The Magicians are available on Netflix. The series The Magicians, based on Lev Grossman's popular fantasy book series for adults, is a very different series than when it started. The Magician concluded the story arcs of its main characters in a satisfying way, but you might be wondering what exactly happened to each character. The Magicians gave us five excellent seasons and Syfy owed them a better farewell, there were so many great stories left to tell.
It felt more intimate and a little more cheeky and about people and The Magicians has always been about people. One of my favorite endings I've seen was the ending of Angel, and one of the things I loved about him is the feeling that the world they lived in would keep fighting, but they didn't tell us how, and I feel that way about The Magicians. We have a few moments of peace at the beginning, since Santa Claus has recreated Christmas in the apartment so that the magicians can spend a few moments together opening presents (without them knowing that this is the last time they will all be in the same room). Their weakest moments came when Los Magicians failed to unite those moments and ended up entangled in their own storyline.
While those of you who are intimately familiar with how The Magicians is made may be panicking right now because you know that production ended last year, as it turns out that the showrunners had a feeling that this could be the end.
