WATCH: This upcoming British TV show features lesbian witches
Teresa Palmer as Diana Bishop in A Discovery of Witches

A Discovery of Witches, coming to British television station Sky 1 later this year, features two lesbian witches.

The show

The show, based on the bestselling novel by Deborah Harkness, follows Sarah Bishop and her partner Emily Mather as they raise their niece Diana and teach her to use her powers. The show stars Teresa Palmer as Diana Bishop, Valarie Pettiford as Emily Mather, and Alex Kingston as Sarah Bishop.

With similarities to fan favorites Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Sabrina the Teenage Witch, the plot synopsis reads:

‘Palmer headlines the series as Diana Bishop, a science historian who also just happens to be a witch with a troubling past that has resulted in her suppressing her magical tendencies. When her research leads her to uncover a mysterious missing manuscript in Oxford’s Bodleian Library, she sets in motion a series of events that will lead her on an adventure across time and continents to discover the secrets of her past and the truth about the origin of magical beings, which include witches, vampires, and daemons.’

Praise for LGBTI representation

People on social media are super excited for this LGBTI representation, both in the book and in the upcoming series:
