Critic Reviews for The Magicians: Season 5

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

The Magicians is crass and corny; sometimes, it's horrific... Still, it successfully balances the silliness with these mortal stakes because it's filled with characters complex enough to keep viewers invested in the whole, quirky thing.

I'm so grateful to the cast, crew, and creators for giving us a world full of such fun, weirdness, and pain that ultimately showed us that there is a better world possible, if we take our pain and make it something more.

It wasn't all sunshine and rainbows and tough times lie ahead for our favorite characters, but it was without a doubt a satisfying conclusion to an amazing five-year series.

Based on the evidence, the show is still charming enough, tongue-in-cheek enough, and the cast game enough that I'm willing to stick around to find out.

It feels at once like it's moving on from the loss of its central character, but also still feels like the same show I came to love.

I think the premiere is fabulous and does its job of setting the tone for the entire season while tying things together from last season.
