A Ten-Day Countdown to the Premiere of Season 2 of A Discovery of Witches – Day Ten – History!

“The Armada Portrait” of Elizabeth I, located at Woburn Abbey, dated 1588.

Y’all. We’re only nine sleeps and a wake-up — or ten days — from the premiere of Season 2 of A Discovery of Witches TV on Shudder, Sundance Now, and AMC+ on 9 January 2021. To get properly excited, we thought we’d share our thoughts on what we’re most looking forward to about Season 2.

One of everyone’s favorite aspects of Shadow of Night, the source text for Season 2 of A Discovery of Witches TV, is how it whisks the reader into Tudor England — full of real people, real intrigue, and real events. From early production stills, trailers, and behind-the-scenes sneak peaks, we can certainly expect to encounter our favorite historical people and places from the books on-screen. For many of us, this is a wonderful opportunity to attend the court of Elizabeth I in the company of Matthew Roydon, her shadowy spy, and to peruse the extensive library of John Dee. Thanks to the incredible production team at Bad Wolf, we’re in for a phenomenal tour of Tudor England and Renaissance Europe–warrens, libraries, castles, countryside, and everything in between. If you haven’t already, take some time to watch this incredible “Behind the Magic” feature from New York Comic Con this fall and get in the mood for some A+ historical tourism.

If you can’t get enough, you should also check out the fabulous Biography Sundays in the All Souls Discussion Group on Facebook — there are book discussions, chapter questions, and lots of great details about characters (real and imagined!) from the All Souls Universe.

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. ten. days.

Tell us which historical figure you’re most excited to see in Season 2 in the comments!

September Announcements

My goodness, it’s been a busy few weeks.

We will not be releasing a new chapter discussion this weekend. Things have been a bit hectic at C&C headquarters (both East and West), and so we are taking a mini-break to catch up. There will be a brand new Book of Life chapter discussion in your podcast feed in two weeks.

Announcements

Until that time, we have a couple of announcements for this month.

  1. To celebrate the kick of the 2019 A Discovery of Witches Real Time Reading, we will be doing a live tweet and watch party of episode 1 season 1 of A Discovery of Witches on Wednesday, September 18th, at 5:00 PDT /8:00 EDT.
  2. Keep an eye out in September for some giveaways to celebrate our 2-year Anniversary podcasting about the All Souls Universe.

Catch you in two weeks with a new episode!

A Discovery of Witches TV March Madness – 19 March-8 April

Darling Clovers:

I am going to give you a peek into how things sometimes happen at C&C headquarters.

Imagine that you’re Jen, minding your own business on the West Coast (C&C West). It’s getting late on the East Coast (C&C East), so you’re settling down for the night. Then, your phone makes its chirpy text message noise.

*DING*

*DING*

*DINGDINGDINGDINGDING*

You pick up your phone, even though you know it’s not a good sign.

CAIT: I HAVE HAD *AN IDEA*

JEN: …

CAIT: It’s FABULOUS and LOADS OF EFFORT and HORRIBLY SPONTANEOUS.

JEN: …

CAIT: What do you think?

JEN: …

CAIT: I’M GOING IN.

JEN: *THUMBS UP*

As you may have guessed, my lovelies, this is one of those occasions. I’ve been scheming for ways to celebrate the premiere of ADOWTV on network television… and then I remembered that the sports ball tournament starts tomorrow. And that one can make A BRACKET. Well, IT IS DONE.

I present to you the inaugural ADOWTV March Madness. Here’s how it will work:

(1) Every day between now and Monday, 8 April 2019, I’ll post a poll on our Facebook page and our Twitter account.

(2) Vote for your favorite of the two scenes listed for that day. The scene with the least votes will be eliminated from the bracket.

(3) You can join in at any time and you don’t have to be a listener to play. Come join the fun and let’s see what shakes out!

(4) We’ll have the final vote and ranking on 8 April 2019, the day after the network TV premiere.

I know you want to see the bracket, so here it is in all of its glory:

You can download your own copy below, but I’ll post updated copies as we go. The first poll will be up in a matter of hours!

Some quick caveats: (1) I know some characters are underrepresented in this bracket, but anything over 24 scenes became LUDICROUS; (2) if your favorite scene isn’t represented, let me know! I’ll make a separate poll for the scenes I overlooked; (3) I’ll count both Twitter and Facebook votes; and (4) this is supposed to be FUN. Invite your friends! Talk to other fans! Enjoy it — I know I will.

In the meantime, join me in thanking Jen for loving me despite my bright ideas.

May your favorite scene win!
