Harry Potter for adults… that is the popular way of describing Lev Grossman's trilogy The Magicians. The story of an introvert named Quentin who gets admitted to a secret college for magicians in New York. A television adaptation of the novels has been in the works for a while with Syfy finally giving the series a go. The cast includes Jason Ralph as Quentin, Stella Maeve as Julia, Arjun Gupta as Penny, Hale Appleman as Eliot, Summer Bishil as Margo (Janet in the novels), and Sosie Bacon as Alice.
The Magicians is set to premiere in 2016.
