The Magicians first cast its spell on us way back in December and we've been under its spell ever since. But after five seasons, Syfy decided to pull the plug and cancel the series in April , much to the dismay of its die-hard fans. It was always a discussion—never really about the creative—about the financials and you always know, with any show, that there's this kind of fine line between what it brings in and what it costs. Co-creator Sera Gamble said: "And as the creators of the show, we understand that. We had the sense going into this season that Syfy, in particular as our first platform, was kind of hitting the point of, 'The cup is full and there's no more room. McNamara added: "It's not going to necessarily expand in terms of revenue, it's not necessarily going to contract in terms of revenue, but it is going to cost more. But while its time on Syfy has come to an end, there's no stopping it from landing on another network or streaming platform in future if the interest is there and there are no contractual issues. Netflix picked up Designated Survivor and Lucifer when they were canned, using a little bit of their own magic to resurrect the dead.
