Fans have been waiting for a long time to see the untrained witch and her vampire partner and now that it’s here, its promising to take things up a notch.

The series is based on Deborah Harkness’ All Souls book series and season 2 is based on the second novel, ‘Shadow of Night.’ The story is about a historian and reluctant witch named Diana Bishop who forms an unlikely partnership with a mysterious vampire named Matthew Clairmont after she comes across an enchanted manuscript in Oxford’s Bodleian Library, and is forced back into the world of magic full of witches, vampires, demons and other monsters.  Together, they try to solve the various riddles found in this manuscript while also overcoming threats from the magical creature world.

While most of the cast members from season 1 will be reprising their roles, we have newcomers such as Steven Cree (Outlander, Maleficent), Tom Hughes (Victoria) and James Purefoy (The Following, Altered Carbon) in some pretty interesting roles.

As per director Farren Blackburn, the second season wrapped up shoots in late January 2020, and was able to escape the filming restrictions imposed due to the pandemic. But the post production was affected and that caused the long delay.
