Sky has released the first look at A Discovery Of Witches season two, showing off a new Elizabethan London setting.

Based on the novels by Deborah Harkness, the first season of A Discovery Of Witches saw Diana Bishop (Teresa Palmer) discover her magical heritage after an encounter with vampire Matthew Clairmont (Matthew Goode).

The end of the first season saw Diana and Matthew jump through time to 16th century London to escape together from the Congregation, with the second season following their exploits as they hunt to find a powerful witch teacher to help Diana control her magic.

A first look picture shows Diana and Matthew in their Elizabethan garb, which looks like it could be leaning into the silliness which made the first outing oddly compelling.
