The first The Magicians Season 4 teaser trailer has been released online, giving us our first comprehensive look at the new season of the Syfy series. The show’s third season found the characters working without magic, facing insurmountable odds until they finally turned that faucet back on—but at a cost. Those pesky folks at the Library opted to control the flow of magic themselves, so they erased the memories of our favorite magicians and put them back on Earth, without any knowledge of their abilities. Oh but there was just one problem: Eliot was now possessed by a monster who’d been locked in a castle for ages and was finally set free.
The show’s fourth season will find the magicians living very different lives, but they’ll have to find their way back to not only themselves, but each other, if they have any hope of defeating the monster. Alice (Olivia Taylor-Dudley) is the only one who still has her memories, so she’ll likely be the key.
This teaser is brief, but it’s full of everything that makes The Magicians so great: dirty jokes, magic, and Margo (Summer Bishil) being a badass. Moreover, the show is coming off its best season yet, so I’m mighty curious to see what the writers have in store for fans as the show continues to move beyond Lev Grossman’s source material as it carves out its own signature niche.
Check out the Magicians Season 4 teaser trailer below. The show returns on Syfy on January 23rd.
Back in July, Jason and some of him fellow “The Magicians” cast members attended the San Diego Comic-Con International. Below you can watch interviews from the event:
At Comic-Con, the Syfy series’ co-creators and stars touched on each character’s new life this season.
“The Magicians” will have a difficult task ahead in Season 4, which was previewed at the Comic-Con panel on Saturday in San Diego. On hand to tease what comes next were co-creators Sera Gamble and John McNamara, stars Jason Ralph, Stella Maeve, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Hale Appleman, and Summer Bishil. Actress and ultimate geek girl Felicia Day, who has guest-starred on the Syfy series, moderated the panel.
The writers then got to “spitballing” ideas to dig themselves out of that narrative hole, and what resulted was the upcoming season. Apparently, in lieu of an actual trailer, the Syfy marketing department conceived of a video for Comic-Con that further confused matters while only spilling minor spoilers. Take a look at the “mockumentary” that even confused Felicia Day:

We went to the Magicians party because you couldn’t because you weren’t in California. This is better because while it was fun, it was hot there.
