Happiest 2021, Clovers and friends!
As the calendar turns over to the new year, we’re one day closer to the premiere of Season 2 of A Discovery of Witches TV on Shudder, Sundance Now, and AMC+ on 9 January 2021! If you’re anything like us, one of the things we’re most looking forward to is the appearance of beloved original characters on-screen — Goody Alsop, Pierre, Francoise, and, of course, Gallowglass! We all have our own head canon about how these characters look and sound and walk and talk, but there’s a particular kind of art and magic in seeing talented artists bring a special character to the screen. Steven Cree, our Gallowglass, is no stranger to adapting book characters — you’ve likely seen him on STARZ’s screen adaptation of Outlander as Ian Murray. In a recent interview with Radio Times, Steven gave an interview about how Outlander prepared him for playing Gallowglass. According to the article, Steven knows how important Gallowglass is to the fandom and is looking forward to seeing how such a “such a cracking character” resonates with the TV audience. Based on the Instagram photo below, we think he resonates rather nicely.
We’ll celebrate the premiere of Season 2 with a live-tweet on Saturday, 9 January 2021, at 7pm EST. Use the hashtag #ccalchemy to join in the fun and keep your eyes peeled for our updated release and live tweet schedule.
In the meantime, follow us on Twitter or join our Facebook group, the Chamomile & Clove Clovers, to connect with us and other fans eagerly awaiting the return of our favorite series in just over a week!
