Lev Grossman’s best-selling Magicians trilogy is being adapted for a 12-episode television series, which will premiere on SyFy sometime in 2016. If you missed the first trailer, treat yourself to an enticing look into Quentin Coldwater’s world at the magical Brakebills Academy. Jason Ralph (A Most Violent Year, Aquarius) stars as Quentin.

Grossman, a board member at Electric Literature, is as equally excited as his many fans about his story’s transition to screen: “Get ready; you’ve never seen anything like this.

After viewing this newest extended teaser — which premiered last weekend at San Diego Comic-Con — I can’t help but agree. It’s a suspenseful, exciting scene that left me drooling for more of Quentin’s magic.
