SYFY canceled the show after five seasons. The Syfy series, based on the novel of the same name by Lev Grossman, will not be renewed for the sixth season. The magicians have reached the end of the road. The class is officially canceled at Brakebills Academy.
According to Deadline, Syfy is ready to disconnect her fantasy thriller The Magicians after 5 seasons of magical shenanigans. The sudden announcement means that the season currently airing on genre cable will be the final act of the series, with the conclusion scheduled to air on April 1.The finale is just around the corner for The Magicians. The current fifth season of the fantasy drama series will be the last; the finale of season 3 on April 1 will serve as the series finale. Throughout the current season, The Magicians has an average of 415,000 viewers in the valuable ad demographic of 18 to 49. The Magicians currently star Stella Maeve as Julia Wicker, Olivia Taylor Dudley as Alice Quinn, Hale Appleman as Eliot Waugh, Arjun Gupta as William “Penny Adiyodi”, Summer Bishil as Margo Hanson, Rick Worthy as Henry Fogg, Jade Tailor as Kady Orloff-Diaz, Brittany Curran as Fen and Trevor Einhorn as Josh Hoberman.
The industry has been giving restarts, revivals and comebacks for all kinds of shows, and season 6 of The Magicians has the same chance as anyone to get one of these Hollywood welcome tickets that every fan of the series would love to see happen. But unfortunately, the streaming powerhouse can't save them all, and everyone will have to wait to see what the future of the sixth chapter of The Magicians holds. A world built from the very self of The Magicians would be ready to be explored and undoubtedly full of dark and interesting stories. By enrolling at Brakebills University of Magical Pedagogy to train as a magician, Quentin Coldwater discovers that the magical world of his favorite children's book is real and poses a threat to humanity.
Syfy's The Magicians has been canceled, greatly disappointing fans. Here's why there won't be a Magicians season 6.There is no way to determine when The Magicians would shoot its sixth season if the order came, but it's good to know that another way out has been discussed, so if plans came up to start filming, it wouldn't take long in the development stages in terms of having to start from scratch as far as the story could go. So it seems unlikely that Netflix will choose The Magicians to continue, even though many fans watch the show on that particular streaming service. In its current fifth season, The Magicians has been averaging 881,000 live+7 total viewers, 415,000 of them in the adult 18-49 demographic.
But that still doesn't explain why Syfy made the decision to scrap it, especially considering that the team behind The Magicians had a lot of other narrative lines they wanted to explore. There were talks to try to bring the sixth season of The Magicians to life at other outlets, including NBC Universal. Of course, this is just speculation and a little wishful thinking, but it's always fun to imagine “what if, especially when it comes to The Magicians”. There's still a chance that Netflix could step in to save The Magicians, but given the associated costs, you probably shouldn't hold your breath.
