So I guess by now you all must have watched the first season of Shadow and Bones on Netflix. We don’t know the release date of the second season of Shadow of Bones. But until then, you can watch another show which is quite similar to Shadow and Bone (only if you have finished Shadow and Bone already). The show is called “A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES”. Which is an adaption of a novel by Deborah Harkness.
A Discovery Of Witches is a historical fantasy novel written by Deborah Harkness. Also, the first installment in the all souls trilogy, followed by Shadow of Night, and the third and final novel The Book of Life.
Story line of A Discovery Of The Witches
The storyline of the show centers around a senior student at Yale University, named Diana Bishop. she discovers a manuscript at the Bodleian Library. The found manuscript not only causes a magical reaction in Diana. But it also catches the attention of other beings who were in search of the manuscript for a very long time. Diana is compelled to use the power flowing in her veins. Not just that, she also falls into a forbidden relationship with a very handsome vampire named Matthew Clermont. A Discovery Of Witches focuses on the supernatural creatures making their way into the human world.
The novel is translated into 36 different languages. And if you feel like reading is too much for you, then we have a piece of really good news for you. The best part is that two seasons of a television adaptation of the books are already out now for you to binge on.
A Discovery Of Witches Season 1 premiered from 14th September 2018 to 2nd November 2018, with a total of 8 episodes. Season 2 began on 8th January 2021 to 12th March 2021 with 10 episodes. Season 3 of ‘A Discovery Of Witches’ apparently began filming in late 2020. Because of the Covid-19 restrictions, it is expected to arrive at the end of 2021. Or maybe at the beginning of 2022.
The cast of A Discovery of Witches
Teresa Palmer is playing the role of Diana Bishop and Matthew Goode as Matthew De Clermont. Staying true to the storyline. The chemistry between these two is to die for. So if you haven’t already watched the seasons or read the novels. I say don’t waste your time and start now because:
“It begins with absence and desire, It begins with blood and fear
It begins with a discovery of witches”
