No, you didn’t miss any episodes. No, your eyes have not deceived you. Our interview with Adam Sklar, who plays Hendry Percy on A Discovery of Witches Season 2, was originally slated to be released as Episode 101 at the beginning of June.
For podcast reasons, we had to rearrange our release schedule. For fun, we decided to keep the episode number.
We had such a lovely time talking to Adam about A Discovery of Witches TV, Henry Percy, video games, movies, deaf culture, accessibility, representation, and so many other topics. We know you will enjoy this interview.
We had such fun recording this surprise episode with none other than Lachlan MacKinnon, executive producer of A Discovery of Witches TV. Mr. MacKinnon is a delight — please tune in as we discuss adapting Season 2 for the screen and his goals for Season 3!

There is so much magic in store for us in Season 2 of A Discovery of Witches — and not just the cinematic kind! Shadow of Night is central to Diana’s development as a witch; she discovers the depths of her powers and asks important questions about her magic and her place in the world. We’ve long been curious about how the production and creative teams behind the television show would illustrate Diana’s magical education with Goody Alsop and her growing understanding of how her power can change the world. By all appearances, we have a lot to look forward to — time travel! Weaving! The potential for familiars! The search for the Book of Life! Diana’s journey from reluctant witch to powerful weaver is one of our favorite storylines in the All Souls Trilogy and we can’t wait to see it take shape on screen. To whet our appetites for magic of all kinds, take a peek at this lovely behind-the-scenes video shared by A Discovery of Witches TV on Instagram. Are you following them, yet?
Which of Diana’s remarkable powers do you hope to see on display in Season 2? What spell do you wish you could perform?
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 us and invite your 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.
