In the newest installment, wizard-in-training Douxie (Colin O’Donoghue) and the heroes of Arcadia embark on a time-bending adventure to medieval Camelot that leads to an apocalyptic battle for the control of magic that will determine the fate of these supernatural worlds that have now converged. 10 new episodes of Wizards premiere August 7 on Netflix.

Created and executive produced by del Toro, Wizards is also executive produced by Marc Guggenheim and Chad Hammes while Chad Quandt & Aaron Waltke serve as co-executive producers.
