Quentin and the gang embark on an 'epic quest' to restore magic

Quentin and his friends are the reason magic was removed from the world. So now, it’s their job to bring it back.

On Monday, Syfy unveiled the new trailer for The Magicians season 3, which premieres Wednesday, Jan. 10 at 9 p.m. This season sees Quentin (Jason Ralph), Julia (Stella Maeve), Alice (Olivia Taylor Dudley), Eliot (Hale Appleman), and Margo (Summer Bishil) take to the high seas on an “epic quest” to restore magic. As the trailer reveals, they’re in search of a certain number of keys that unlock something that will help bring magic back.

They’re definitely going to need magic this season, because not only are their lives meaningless without it, but because magic-free Fillory is under full but secret occupation by the fairies. As EW reported in Sept., this new state of affairs means Eliot and Margo are the unwilling pawns of the Fairy Queen (Candis Cayne), who has her own dark vision for Fillory’s future.

Watch the trailer above.

The Magicians returns Jan. 10 at 9 p.m. on Syfy.
