What is ‘A Discovery of Witches’ Season 3 about? 

In A Discovery of Witches Season 3, vampire-witch power couple Matthew (Matthew Goode) and Diana (Teresa Palmer) are back in the present day after spending season 2 in the 1590s. But upon their return, they find that Peter Knox (Owen Teale) has murdered Diana’s beloved Aunt Emily (Valarie Pettiford). 

Knox and his allies want to enforce age-old rules prohibiting the intermingling of witches, vampires, and daemons. But Diana and Matthew represent a threat to the established order, especially now that they are expecting a child together. To protect her family and those she loves, Diana stands up to the powerful forces of the Congregation. 

A Discovery of Witches Season 3 is based on The Book of Life, the third and final installment of Deborah Harkness’ All Souls trilogy.
