The magic is back in the trailer for season 4 of Syfy's The Magicians

To the uninitiated, Syfy’s adaptation of The Magicians can be a pretty weird and baffling thing. The show will be coming back for a new season in January, and as laid out in this handy Deadline post about the latest Magicians trailer, the series is coming off of a third season that saw magic itself being shut down and then losing their memories and identities in the process of restoring it. This trailer has a lot of ominous talk about a bad Library and bad Librarians, which we’re going to interpret as a meta commentary from Syfy about television being a better medium than books. That’s almost certainly not the message here, but it’s fun to interpret it that way.

The Magicians returns to Syfy on January 23.
