After more than a year of waiting, A Discovery of Witches is finally back on our screens as season two kicks off this week

The fantasy drama emerged as one of the cult hits of 2018 when it landed on Sky One and told the story of Diana Bishop, a young witch who found her magical after meeting the vampire Matthew Clairmont (Matthew Goode) Skills discovered

Season two begins after the couple have traveled through time to escape the shadow forces of the Congregation, where Matthew and Diana will attempt to find a powerful witch teacher to help her use their magic

After the pandemic pushed the series back last year, fans will be thrilled that the show’s second run in all this time is here – and with season three already confirmed, there’s a lot more to it can be happy

In the meantime, these are all the questions we’d really like to have answered before Season 2

The first pics and trailer show Matthew and Diana take place on the streets of 16th century London It’s a new home for the 20th century, and viewers will be desperate to see their latest adventures on screen

The new setting is a departure from green modern Oxford, where the events of the first season took place, and a fascinating move for the show

Who will they run into? We know that one of the main characters they’ll encounter will be dashing playwright Kit Marlow, played by Tom Hughes, who is best known for his appearances in Victoria and is sure to add a brooding presence to the new episodes There is too Gallowglass to watch out for, Matthew’s vampire nephew, played by Steven Cree

You are sure to have a huge impact on the show as actor Steven tells Metro aboutcoGreat Britain that he will bring “a bit of laughter and lightheartedness” to the show

While we have to wait and see what they discover in the new series, one thing is certain – the period costumes and sets are some of the most impressive we’ve seen on British television, and promise a lot ahead of the new episodes

Diana gained confidence and security over the course of the first season, and Matthew helped her control her powers, however, the strength of her skills requires a more advanced teacher, and the couple’s search for a tutor is likely to become much of the second season make up

It looks like Sheila Hancock’s Goody Alsop could be the one to help her use her supernatural powers. Goody is a prominent figure in the Deborah Harkness novels on which the show is based She could be the key to helping Diana unleash her true potential. If she manages to do that, there is no limit to how powerful she could become

Forbidden Love was the focus of the series from the start, and Diana and Matthew fell in love with each other in season one despite the odds, with vampire-witch relationships strictly forbidden between types of The Covenant, the two continue to go big Take risks by being together

Now that the couple is in London on the 16th On the run from the early 1900s, it remains to be seen whether their new surroundings and the characters they encounter are better able to forgive their situation and agree to forge allegiances with Diana and Matthew even though their love is forbidden

One thing is for sure, it is unlikely that their enemies Gerbert, Knox, Satu and Domenico will ever look kindly at their relationship Diana and Matthew face a race to remain undetected, even in the past four centuries

The Book of Life (also known as Ashmole 782) has always been the key to the balance of power in A Discovery of Witches, and Diana inadvertently invoked it in season one after many tried and failed

Matthew and Diana hope that by using their powers, Diana can find the book and protect it from malicious forces. Will they be able to? This is one of the biggest questions that needs to be answered in Season Two

While the show’s two main stars have traveled back in time for their own protection, there’s still a lot to do in Oxford today.We really want to see how Marcus Whitmore’s role will change without Matthew Clairmont by his side

After Matthew in the 16th Having left in the 17th century, the young vampire was named Grand Master of the Knights of Lazarus at the end of season one, and he will take on great responsibility in season two

Ed spoke about the arc of his character and told Metrocouk: “What we see in the second series is that Marcus can really break away from the people in whom he is constantly in the shadows”

‘[Marcus] has always been a little more of a Playboy vampire – that’s my favorite type of vampire – but this season he’s starting to give up and take responsibility and really care about the people around him’
