Today marks the US debut of the series A Discovery of Witches
, based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Deborah Harkness.
In a world where witches, vampires, and demons live secretly among humans, the series follows historian Diana Bishop (Teresa Palmer), a witch who denies her magical heritage, refusing to use magic. However, not always in control, when she accidentally uses her magic to retrieve a manuscript in Oxford’s Bodleian Library that has long been lost, her world is turned upside down. She is approached by vampire Matthew Clairmont (Matthew Goode), who has been looking for the book for over a century, as it may contain secrets to his heritage. He tells her that other creatures will be looking for it as well and she is not safe. Witches don’t trust vampires, but can she trust this intriguing man, and can he protect her from not only other creatures, but also others of her own kind and help her separate the truths from the lies?
