A Discovery of Witches TV News - A Recap of What's Been Happening So Far . . . (updated - continually!)

Defying gravity! Not the from the musical "Wicked", but the deeds, wicked! Satu and Diana taking flight on a blue screen! See post here!
Well fellow fans, this has become a living document; check back often! It's subject to change! Updated 13 Feb 2018; Interested in what's going on in book news? Here it is: All Souls Book News

It seems the A Discovery of Witches TV thing is really happening! We've been riding this roller coaster for a quite a while. First, it was Warner Bros. in 2012 (to possibly translate the trilogy to film), then ... sad trombone! That didn't happen. But hope remained alive!

Deep in our heart of hearts we knew that the possibility of watching actors play our beloved characters on the small screen was in works. Then we got news that the BBC was going to take it on in 2015, to later, Bad Wolf embracing the project! Yes, we've been told over and over again that this was happening, but now we have tons of visual evidence! Cue fan girl scream: AAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

* Formal Announcements can be found here in these Instagram/FB Posts:

This is really happening! This scene was shared by @discoveryofwitchestv (via IG story); the first of many to floor us!
We begin our recap with the picture above; the first heart-stopping photograph of a scene so many of us pictured in our heads while reading the books. To see actual actors bring it to life, though? Excuse us, we find ourselves speechless!

Edward Bluemel (cast as Marcus) getting ready for a scene with his TV dad, Matthew Goode (shared by @ADiscoveryOfWitchesTV on Twitter)
Apparently, everything is going as planned! Or it appears as though it is, so we remain optimists! Thanks goes to the crew over at A Discovery of Witches TV and Deb for keeping us updated! So now we can all rest our heads at night with visions of seeing Diana and Matthew on our various screens in the near future! Tentative talk has the production airing around Autumn of 2018 (as with everything, that can change. We are also still waiting on a US broadcaster to be announced).

* So, let's start with the cast:
