The third and final season of A Discovery of Witches is set to premiere early next year and to give fans a glimpse of what to expect from the conclusion of the fantasy series, AMC+, Sundance Now, and Shudder dropped the first official trailer for the show’s last batch of episodes on Friday.
The two-minute video opens with a quick look at Emily Mather’s (Valarie Pettiford) funeral, as Matthew Clairmont (Matthew Goode) and Diana Bishop (Teresa Palmer) vow to seek justice for her murder. “When Peter Knox (Owen Teale) murdered Emily Mather (Valarie Pettiford), he killed a woman that was like a mother to my wife,” Matthew says. Diana, meanwhile, promises to “make Knox pay for all of it.”
But since Matthew broke the covenant, Knox and the rest of the Congregation are also after him and his loved ones. Diana seems to be one of the first targets, not only because her pregnancy makes her an easy victim, but also because the Congregation is apparently afraid of her unborn twins. “The power they might possess is unprecedented,” says Knox of the yet-to-be-born children of a vampire and a witch.
While Satu Järvinen (Malin Buska) acknowledges the fact that Diana has power, the former tells Domenico Michele (Gregg Chillin) in the trailer that Diana “doesn’t know how to use it.” But as seen in the trailer, Diana is trying her best to piece The Book of Life back together, hoping that it will help to keep everyone on her side sound and safe.
Diana also appears to be more confident with her powers in the trailer. When someone asked her if she’s ready for the imminent attack of the Congregation to their camp, a self-assured Diana replies: “Let them come.” But Diana isn’t getting too cocky. Knowing that defeating Knox and the Congregation is not an easy feat, Diana says, “We need more than a fight, we need a revolution.”
Though the trailer didn’t reveal when exactly the final season of the series will premiere, the official A Discovery of Witches Twitter account announced on Friday that the show will return for its swan song in January 2022 on AMC+, Sundance Now, and Shudder.
