More dragons are coming in television as The Magicians season 2 spoilers indicate the show’s creators are about to introduce their own version of the mystical creature soon.
Showrunners Sera Gamble and John McNamara revealed that they would bring in a dragon in the storyline of the fantasy series. They, however, are just taking some time to develop the story.
Gamble explained to Collider that they wanted to research more on how to do magic in a modern setting like in The Magicians. “All of us wanted a dragon, but we didn’t want a shitty dragon. There are some really good dragons on TV, and we don’t consider ourselves to be in direct competition with any of those shows, but there’s an expectation of quality among people who watch the kind of show we’re making, and we wanted to be able to deliver. So we started by concentrating on the baby caco-demons and seeing how they turned out,” Gamble said.
Gamble and McNamara were also asked on whether or not fans would see the ocean-set world of The Magician’s King in season 2 or the series will depart from the book. McNamara said it will be a little bit of both scenarios.
He explained that doing the book’s ocean-set world on television is totally different, not to mention the cost. However, the show’s co-creator teased that they have already done with some designs and built things that will allow them to follow the ocean-set world part of the book.
Gamble further teased on what to expect beyond The Magicians season 2. She said there are more plotlines and twists in Lev Grossman’s second book that they haven’t touch in the current season. The EP teased these could be used in the upcoming installment of the Syfy series.
