The Philippine premiere of The Magicians will take place on ETC tonight, July 27, 2016, at 10 PM.
Based on Lev Grossman's best-selling book series, The Magicians follows Quentin Coldwater, a highly intelligent but socially withdrawn twenty-something secretly obsessed with a series of fantasy novels he read as a child about a magical land called Fillory.
Beyond that, Quentin's life is dull until he finds himself admitted to a very secret, exclusive institution for magical pedagogy in Upstate New York, where he receives a thorough and rigorous training of modern sorcery.
However, magic doesn't bring the happiness, adventure, and meaning that he thought it would—until he and his friends discover that Fillory is real.
The main cast of The Magicians include Jason Ralph as Quentin Coldwater, a graduate student and the protagonist; Stella Maeve as Julia Wicker, Quentin's childhood friend, an Ivy League student who is not admitted to Brakebills, and is recruited by a secret magical society; Olivia Taylor Dudley as Alice Quinn, a magician and Quentin's love interest whose parents are magicians and who comes from a neglected home life; Hale Appleman as Eliot Waugh, a student at Brakebills and senior to Quentin, a heavy drinker and frustrating ally to Quentin; Arjun Gupta as William 'Penny' Adiyodi, Quentin's roommate and peer, deliberately intimidating and edgy; and Summer Bishil as Margo Hanson, equivalent to Janet from the novels, her name was changed to avoid confusion with other names beginning with "J".
The Magicians premieres on ETC this Wednesday, July 27, at 10 PM.
