A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES BECOMES SKY'S BIGGEST RETURNING SERIES IN NINE YEARS

Series Two of the fantasy drama becomes Sky’s most binged boxset ever for a returning Original series.



Sky Original A Discovery of Witches transported viewers into the fascinating and magical world of Elizabethan London, when it launched on our screens earlier this month on 8th January.

The series launch episode on Sky One achieved a cumulative 7 day audience of 1.79m, making it Sky’s biggest launch for an original returning series in nearly 9 years. This puts it ahead of returning series including Save Me Too, Bulletproof S2 and Fortitude S2.


Cameron Roach, Director of Drama and Sky Studios said: "These figures are a testament to the overwhelming popularity of the A Discovery of Witches franchise, and that it continues to capture the nation’s imagination and add a little extra magic and escapism to our lives when we need it most. With more episodes to come and a third series on the horizon, we hope everyone continues to enjoy the show as the magic, mystery and romance further unfolds".


During launch week, A Discovery of Witches S2 was the top voice command on Sky Q in the UK, with more than 81,000 customers using their voice to summon the series on Sky Q, along with nearly 5 million downloads.
