SEASON FINALE: Who Isn’t Returning to Vancouver For Season 5 of THE MAGICIANS?

The Magicians.

Did I do something brave to save my friends? Or did I finally find a way to kill myself?

A major character died tonight on the season 4 finale of The Magicians.

Cast: Olivia Taylor Dudley (Alice Quinn), Jason Ralph (Quentin Coldwater), Stella Maeve (Julia Wicker), Hale Appleman (Eliot Waugh), Summer Bishil (Margo Hanson), Jade Tailor )Kady Orloff-Diasz), Trevor Einhorn (Josh Hoberman), Arjun Gupta (William “Penny” Adiyodi).

Quentin Coldwater (Jason Ralph) has been on a season-long quest to save Eliot Waugh (Hale Appleman), who has been possessed by the Monster since the season 3 finale. The plan was to throw the Monster into a sort of black hole but when things go array Quentin sacrifices himself to save everyone else.

Based upon Lev Grossman’s best-selling books, The Magicians opened in season one with Quentin’s arrival at Brakebills University, a school dedicated to training Magicians. There, he and fellow students Alice, Penny, Margo and Eliot honed their skills and later ended up in the magical kingdom of Fillory where they were named Kings and Queens and tasked with saving magic.

By season 3, magic was dead and our heroes embarked on quests to bring it back. For a moment in the season finale, it looked like they’d succeeded. But then the Library took control of all magic again and trapped Alice while the memories of Quentin, Julia, Margo, Eliot, Kady, Josh and Penny were wiped and a monster got loose and possessed Eliot.

And now Quentin Coldwater is dead and Jason Ralph won’t be returning to Vancouver to film season 5 of The Magicians.

While I don’t see much of The Magicians filming around the city, I did catch Jason Ralph on set once in season 3 — passing the time between setups with a yoyo.

Homebase for Jason Ralph is New York City where his significant other Rachel Brosnahan stars in Amazon’s The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel.
