A Discovery of Witches Season 2: What will we see?

The plot revolves around the character of Diana Bishop who wants to become a permanent professor at Oxford University. She tries really hard to hide her true identity from others. She is also a witch. However, she’s not trained yet. She doesn’t know how to control her powers.

While trying to complete her work at the Bodleian Library, Diana accidentally comes in contact with a magical book named Ashmole 782. Most of the people believed that the book was a complete myth. But its sudden appearance changes everything. She also receives a wound on her hand from the book. A vampire named, Matthew Clairmont, is also interested in getting his hands on that book. Vampires are on the verge of losing their powers. That’s why Matthew wants that book to cure and protect his species from extinction.

On the other hand, we have Peter Knox. He is a member of the Congregation. His goal is to wipe out the entire existing generation of vampires. He seeks out for Diana’s help. But she chooses Matthew over him which results in some serious consequences.
