"If the world ends, I end with it knowing that I did everything that I could. Because I won't be able to live with myself otherwise."
Julia Wicker

The Fifth Season of The Magicians was announced on January 22, 2019 and released on January 15, 2020.


Last season, magic was saved, but at a terrible cost: the life of Quentin Coldwater, who died heroically to save his friends— and the world. Julia, Alice, Eliot, Margo, Penny 23 and their friends (and frenemies) must learn to navigate a world without him. Now, a new threat has arisen: in freeing magic, the balance tipped the other way and there’s too damn much of it, and as the excess builds, an apocalypse looms. Can the magicians get their shit together to save the world without Q?
