Canceled or Renewed: The Status Of Your Favorite TV Shows, Updated
The Magicians (Syfy) *Canceled*
No season six
Syfy network’s The Magicians had a passionate fanbase of fantasy-loving viewers, which is why Syfy decided to give the show a heads up that it would be canceled after season five, which began airing in mid-January 2020. The show was not without controversy during its five-season run. A particular storyline in which a character’s rape spurred her getting additional magical powers and conspiring with a murderer who was also a rape survivor garnered the show quite a bit of heat. Still, the show averaged a 91% average Tomatometer on Rotten Tomatoes and will be remembered fondly by Sysy audiences.
