    Was surprised this show does not have it's own thread here. Could only find reference to it in other threads.

    Season 2 is finally here. The first episode premieres on Sky on January 8th, then streams on AMC+ / Sundance Now / Shudder on January 9th.

    I loved reading the books almost 10 years ago and watching the first season.

    After learning season 2 is finally coming after 3 years I have started rewatching Season 1 today to get ready.

    I watched season 1 when it was broadcast on AMC. It ended up being better than I expected. I've been looking forward to season 2 after it was renewed.

    All of the articles about season 2 seem to be a big ad for AMC+ and their other streaming platforms. They emphasize the show's availability on said platforms, but don't mention if it will be on the linear channel.

    the first season began airing on linear tv three months after originally dropping on Sundance Now, so you might expect a similar strategy for S2.

    To answer my own question, the author of the series says it will be on AMC TV "sometime later".

    Dr. Deborah Harkness (PhD, LHD) on Twitter: "Sometime later in 2021 @ADiscoveryOfWTV will be on @AMC_TV. We have no dates or further info. As with series 1, Series 2 will first be shown on the streaming platforms @sundance_now and @shudder here in the US and Canada." / Twitter

    Yeah, I won't be watching until it is aired on TV. Not going to pay for an additional streaming service.

    I watched the first episode from Season 2 this morning.

    I'm very impressed with the production quality and how they made 1590 London look.

    Not a lot of action yet in the first episode. Starting to build up the plot and settle into 1590 with new character introductions.

    Based on what I have seen so far, A Discovery of Witches is going to exceed my expectations of both being a great show and book adaptation.
