Amnesia strikes The Magicians cast in exclusive SDCC behind-the-scenes clip

Something strange is happening on the set of The Magicians Season 4. Season 3 of the show ended with all the characters losing their memories, and this seems to have also erased the actors' understanding of the characters they play!

As you can see in the behind-the-scenes mockumentary-style clip below, a video crew was recently on set of the magical SYFY show, interviewing stars Stella Maeve, Summer Bishil, Jade Tailor, Jason Ralph, Trevor Einhorn, Arjun Gupta, and Hale Appleman... but not one of them could remember their role on The Magicians.

Well, actually, two could: Olivia Taylor Dudley, who plays Alice, and Rick Worthy, who plays Dean Fogg. Alice didn't have her memory erased at the end of Season 3, nor did Dean Fogg. But Fogg did join forces with the Librarians at the end of the last season.

The Librarians have cut off access to magic, so does that make Dean Fogg a bad guy now? After locking Olivia in her trailer, it may not just be Dean Fogg who has turned into a villain.

One of the scariest parts of this video is Appleman, who seems to have forgotten himself as well as his character. All he will say is "Will you play with me?" Put him in a colorful wig and white face paint, and you can forget ever sleeping again.

The Magicians is set to return in 2019 on SYFY, so it will be a few months before we get any answers, although the show's just-wrapped Comic-Con panel did provide some hints. In the meantime, enjoy the behind-the-scenes fun, and let us know in the comments what you think is coming up in Season 4!
