SYFY's The Magicians sees its third season premiere in just over a week and the land of Fillory is as different as the Brakebills University bunch has ever seen it. Their schooling - at a secret institution specializing in magic, of course - hasn't prepared them for this.

Attempting to avoid spoilers, let’s just say that all is not right in this magical world. Magic is missing, gods are dying, and frankly, things are getting as dark as the series has ever seen.

This new season tackles more and more of Lev Grossman’s bestselling novels, throwing them on board the ship Muntjac for the ride of their lives. And, as you'll see below, magic might not be entirely snuffed out after all.

Take a look at this teaser:


The costumes are new, more ornate, and over-the-top awesome in this period-esque bit of fantasy while the characters seem as harrowed as they’ve been all series. Dourness permeates the shots as deeply as the haunting "King Of Pain" cover playing over the proceedings. The Police have nothing on The Magicians.

As things get weirder and weirder, the voyage of the Muntjac will take this crew to the (quite possibly literal) ends of the Earth. You’ll begin to learn if they will find what they’re looking for when The Magicians return at at 9/8 CST on January 10th.
