Do I need to be scared?
Not at all! In order to create an authentic yet accessible live-action/animated hybrid series. It’s unclear when the MAGIC streaming series will release, but back in November 2018, we reported on a placeholder date that was set to launch sometime in 2021.

What Will Be The Storyline Of The Magic: The Gathering Netflix Series?
Octopie CEO Isaac Krauss said that “the tone of the MTG show’s story is dark and that the writers have developed a character-based story for the series. He also stated that there are currently no other specifics regarding the characters or settings, but based on this placeholder shown above, it will be centered around magic-wielding Planes”.
Nic Kelman, Wizards of the Coast’s head of story and entertainment and executive producer on the Netflix series assure fans that this new Twelve-episode Netflix series will be true to what they love about Magic.
So What the series will do is, it will follow the spirit of preexisting stories and characters while honoring world-building. Moving to a new medium with episodic webcomics, the adventures of Planeswalkers will continue in their own continuity without connecting to any other canon.
Drawing from the lore of Magic, the cards that help make up a person are rich with detail and complexity. The Gatewatch is an iconic group of characters in the game.
For the setting, Magic head designer Mark Rosewater states that Wizards of the Coast don’t want a movie or TV show with people from Earth traveling to Magic’s worlds, so don’t expect the show to feature a real-world setting. Rosewater confirms the upcoming MTG Netflix series’ continual existence in its own continuity.
Jeremy Jarvis, franchise team director for Magic: The Gathering, told Polygon that the show will be a ‘character-driven franchise space. With this library of fantastic characters and beautiful places, we look forward to spreading the story in a new way. Currently, because Season 1 of the show has not been released in its entirety yet, it is unknown who will be producing and writing future episodes.
