New TV Series based on All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness

Great news for All Souls Trilogy fans! A Discovery of Witches has been adapted into a television series! The first season premiered in September 2018. So far, the first season contains eight episodes. The show premieres on Sky One (UK) and AMC (USA). From Digital Spy:
Seven years later and a TV series inspired by the book has finally materialised. Filmed in Wales, but also on-location in Oxford, Venice and New York, Sky One's A Discovery of Witches stars Teresa Palmer (Hacksaw Ridge) and Matthew Goode (The Crown) in the lead roles of a witch and a vampire who find themselves inexorably drawn together.
Here is the plot in case you have not heard of the book series:
Reluctant witch/historian Diana Bishop discovers a bewitched manuscript in the Bodleian library. As she attempts to unravel the secrets this book holds about magical creatures, she is forced back into the world of magic, full of vampires, daemons, witches and forbidden love. Forming an unlikely alliance, geneticist and vampire Matthew Clairmont helps Diana to attempt to protect the book and solve the riddles within, while at the same time dodging threats from the magical creature world.
Finally, fans of All Souls Trilogy finally have a TV adaptation of this best-selling fantasy series. I highly recommend the book series before diving into the television series. It is such a great book. Check out the trailer below:
