Thursday at SDCC 2018 brought fans of upcoming series A Discovery of Witches plenty of content to enjoy while they wait for the US premiere. The show will be streamed by Sundance Now and Shudder, and is based on Deborah Harkness’ best-selling novel. Going into the panel not having read the series, I was pleasantly surprised and excited by what I saw. Teresa Palmer plays brilliant historian Diana Bishop, in a forbidden romance with vampire Matthew Clairmont (Matthew Good).
Author Deborah Harkness herself joined the cast and Executive Producer Lachlan MacKinnon in the SDCC press room to give us more details about their characters and what to expect from the new series! My thought is this a must watch show! It checks all the boxes for me: witches, vampires, and LGBT representation – what more can you ask for? The cast was very passionate about the series, and author Deborah Harkness also seemed very happy with where the story is being taken. Watch our videos below for all the scoop.
