The Magicians: Brittany Curran Talks Fen's Transformation and a Final Fairy Queen Meeting

The Magicians third season is easily the Syfy series best yet. With much of the drama focused on a key quest designed to bring magic back, characters from Brakebills to Fillory have had to lean on each other in new, exciting and more complicated ways.

That includes Fen, the native Fillorian promised to High King Eliot since she was a child. Starting her arc as a somewhat hapless and "unworldly" rural Fillorian, Fen ultimately played key roles in helping the children of Earth attempt to right their wrongs.

Delivered each week to audiences with heart and moxie by actress Brittany Curran, Fen has seen a rather grand transformation across this very soon to be completed 13-episode season.

From seducing her half-interested husband in a foggy haze, attempting to build a family, and acquainting herself with emojis to a secret history of Fillorian resistance fighting, losing her child (and toes) to bad deals,

The Magicians Season 3 Episode 9 Review: All That Josh

The Brakebills crew runs into an old friend and proves that no one gets left behind on The Magicians Season 3 Episode 9.

Before we dive into any other part of this week’s episode, I have to give this show props for acknowledging some narrative shortcomings. In fact, I want to applaud The Magicians willingness to do this so consistently, as it has become easily one of my top three favorite things about the show.

Plot holes shouldn’t happen, but when you’re dealing with big worlds and big casts, they do. As viewers we mostly expect the show to address them and understandably get disappointed when they don’t. Don’t start a plot you can’t finish is a big rule for me.

But The Magicians has offered another way to deal with plot holes beyond quietly taking audience ire when you don’t: build them into your plot.

The Magicians renewed for fourth season

SyFy has announced it has renewed its hit series The Magicians for a fourth season. The announcement came from the series’ own Twitter page, where the also released a motion poster for the show. The Magicians‘ fourth season will air in 2019 for a 13-episode season.

Based on Lev Grossman’s bestselling novels, The Magicians centers on Quentin Coldwater (Jason Ralph) and his 20-something friends as they are thrust into the unfamiliar world of the beautifully enchanting yet mysteriously dangerous Fillory – and places beyond – where they must draw upon their novice skills to save the existence of magic.

The Magicians has been renewed for season 4

Michael Ahr Mar 1, 2018

Syfy has given The Magicians season 4 the go-ahead, assuring fans that there's more magic to come...

With fans eager for more adventures at Brakebills, in Fillory, and beyond, Syfy's recent renewal announcement guarantees that The Magicians season 4 will be a reality. Coming just past the halfway mark of season 3, the news is neither surprising nor expected quite this early, but audience reception has always been overwhelmingly positive for this quirky, funny, sometimes dark fantasy. The series has been Syfy’s top performing scripted original among the key 18-49 demographic for the past three years.

Based on the best-selling novels by Lev Grossman, The Magicians centres on Quentin Coldwater (Jason Ralph) and his 20-something friends as they discover their magical abilities and ward off evil creatures who threaten to destroy the magical world they’ve come to know. In season 3, our core group embarks on the epic quest

The Magicians Season 3 Episode 7 Review: Poached Eggs

The stakes get bigger and the plot lines thicker during The Magicians Season 3 Episode 7.

There have been quite a few recent episodes that I have felt exemplified the strength(s) of The Magicians. But this latest installment is perhaps one of the best at showing how far this series has come (and is ahead of others shows) in terms of developing a story.

As I’ve said before, juggling a large lead ensemble, multiple worlds and a handful of both tangible and intangible threats is an incredibly hard thing to do. It’s even harder to do cohesively.

Still, even harder to do while keeping us all thoroughly entertained. But in case you missed it, “Poached Eggs” has done it. The episode felt, action-wise, like what a midseason climax should be.

I don’t think there was a single moment when I felt like a plot wasn’t being addressed,

Warning: The following contains spoilers for Wednesday’s The Magicians.

The Magicians might need a (temporary) new title after Wednesday’s Season 2 finale.

After Quentin and Julia killed the capricious god Ember, who planned on destroying all of Fillory, the old gods sought retribution by turning off magic. Following a two-month time jump, a small group of Brakebills students, Quentin and Alice included, were left to study magic theoretically in the hopes of its eventual return. But not everyone lost their abilities: Julia revealed a small spark of something magical to her pal Q.

“We have one or two massive musical numbers over the course of the season, largely because [executive producer] John McNamara’s writing the show, and that’s kind of his thing,” Ep Sera Gamble tells TVLine as McNamara laughs.

But it’s not all joyous singing and dancing in the new episodes. “I can say that major characters will die this season,” Gamble reveals. “So we have fun, but it’s also very serious at times.”

The Magicians Recap: Fillory of Fear

The Magicians Recap: Fillory of Fear
Raise your hand if you’re going to have nightmares after Monday’s The Magicians.

The Season 1 finale featured so many disturbing images and twists — not to mention, some purely weird ones — that I need a hedge witch memory patch of my own so I’m not haunted tonight. (I haven’t read the books, so I don’t know how much of the installment came from the producers’ imaginations and how much was pulled from the source material, but either way, you can’t deny that the Syfy series is ballsy.)
