Time-traveling vampires and witches? Yes, please. Get ready to watch A Discovery of Witches season 2 online. The British fantasy drama has returned to Sky One in the UK and on AMC Plus or Sundance Now in the U.S. 

Fans waited over two years for new episodes; the season 1 finale aired in November 2018. The Discovery of Witches season 2 premiere followed up where the action left off: with Diana Bishop (Teresa Palmer) and her roguish vampire lover Matthew Clairmont (Goode) traveling back in time, to the Elizabethan era.

Since it's been awhile, let's bring ourselves back up to speed: Last we saw heroine witch Diana and her roguish vampire lover Matthew, they had decided to timewalk so they can hide from the Congregation (the powerful organization made of representatives from each of the magical races). 

At the start of season 2, they land in Elizabethan London, where they seek a teacher to help Diana hone her magic skills and search for the elusive Book of Life. Along the way, they'll run into some key figures important to their pasts, including Matthew's stepfather.
