Last season, magic was saved, but at a terrible cost: the life of Quentin Coldwater, who died heroically to save his friends- and the world. Now, Julia, Alice, Eliot, Margo, Penny and their friends (and frenemies) must to learn to navigate a world without him. Because a new threat has arisen: in freeing magic, the balance tipped the other way. Now there's too damn much of it, and as the excess builds, an apocalypse looms. Can the magicians get their s*** together to save the world without Q?
