We’re great fans of Magicians, which has evolved into one of the best fantasy series on television with each season. The show begins with a simple – and familiar – premise: a group of young people, all losers in their own way, enrol in graduate studies at a magic school.
It includes a stern headmaster, tangled love stories, and unusual missions, among other fantasy clichés. However, Magicians transforms this straightforward concept into a genre-defying masterpiece. If you’re reading this, chances are you already know everything.
We just want to make it obvious that we’re also huge fans of an underappreciated show. What, on the other hand, can we expect from a magical fifth season? We’re happy you called us in to answer this enigmatic query.

Plot of the Magicians Season 5
Expect further investigation of the Underworld and the Anti-Verse if we’re embarking on a quest for Quentin’s return, because we believe that’s where we’ll find him. But set that aside for a while; there are greater rabbits in the story had to be pulled.
For example, our heroes have arrived 300 years in the future, which is a minor detail. Fen and Josh have been deposed, and the new ruler is known as ‘The Dark King.’ Who could it possibly be? Expect a crazy twist because it’s the Magicians.
Oh, and Alice is taking over the Library, which means Santa Claus could make a comeback. We’d love to read this piece from the perspective of someone who hasn’t seen the show before.
The Release Date for Season 5 of the Magicians
Season 5 of The Magicians has been on Syfy for about a year now. Isn’t it incredible? The good news is that you will be able to relive it very soon. On Friday, January 15, 2021, Netflix releases all 13 episodes. Netflix revealed the news via Twitter, emphasizing that it is exclusively available in the United States.
In a number of countries, including Canada and the United Kingdom, Amazon Prime Video owns the rights. Streaming rights, on the other hand, alter. Keep an eye on your local Netflix to see whether the show will be coming to your area.
The release date is a little later than usual. The Magicians usually airs in December, allowing fans plenty of time to binge-watch all the episodes before the new seasons air on Syfy. Because there is no sixth season this year, things are a little different. Season 5 is the final season, and the Netflix release coincides with when a new season would normally debut.
Will the Magicians Season 6 Happen?
As previously said, The Magicians is one of Syfy’s most popular shows, with consistent ratings throughout each season. Syfy has to keep its lineup packed with programs that succeed, especially now that Deadly Class has proven to be a commercial flop and The Expanse has moved to Amazon Prime.
With that in mind, and the fact that there’s still considerable plot to adapt from Grossman’s third novel, Season 6 of The Magicians should premiere in January 2021. But, given the fact that most Syfy shows don’t endure this long, it might very well be the final season.
