A Discovery of Witches is coming back for season 2 this Friday (January 8), promising more supernatural adventures and a deeper diver into the mysteries of magic.

While we're excited to see more of the relationship between Matthew and Diana, a vampire and a witch, respectively, we're also looking forward to seeing the relationship between Marcus and Phoebe.

He's Matthew's son and a fellow vampire, while she's a human, and a fan-favourite character who is getting expanded for the TV adaptation.

Phoebe actress Adelle Leonce also shared her thoughts, saying: "I think it's just a juxtaposition of Matthew and Diana, you know, they're young, they're playful... it's not naivety, but it's fresh eyes – for me, definitely!"

All episodes are available on demand on Sky and NOW TV on Friday, January 8, and for those that prefer linear viewing it will air on Sky One weekly on Fridays at 9pm.
