The first trailer to Sky’s A Discovery of Witches has finally been released and it’s full of vampires, witches and daemons. The clip starts ominously with the narrator saying that once the world was full of wonders but it belongs to humans now with the supernatural creatures having all nearly disappeared.
Look no further as your new supernatural drama obsession is here.
Based on the novel of the same name by author Deborah Harkness, the series tells the story of alchemical historian and witch Diana Bishop (Teresa Palmer) who has been running away from her heritage since the death of her parents when she was still a child. We follow her story as she meets the mysterious and enigmatic Matthew Clairmont (Matthew Goode), a vampire and biochemist. He becomes her unlikely protector after she discovers a magical manuscript with secrets that could change the world.
Sky’s official synopsis:
What happens when a witch and a vampire fall in love? History professor and closet witch Diana Bishop and geneticist and secret vampire Matthew Clairmont find out when they are thrown together in pursuit of the truth behind a strange manuscript found in the University of Oxford’s Bodleian Library.
The series is being helmed by Julie Gardner and Jane Tranter with their company Bad Wolf Productions. It will air on Sky1 and streamed through NOW TV in the UK and Ireland.
