Following Trollhunters and the second series 3Below, Wizards marks the final chapter in the trilogy that brings together the three disparate worlds of trolls, aliens and wizards.

Joining the series are Alfred Molina (​Frozen II​) as Douxie’s shape-shifting familiar Archie, Stephanie Beatriz (​Brooklyn Nine-Nine)​ as troublemaker troll Callista, James Faulkner (Game of Thrones​) as legendary ruler of Camelot King Arthur, and John Rhys Davies (Lord of the Rings) as Galahad.

Created and executive produced by del Toro, Wizards is also executive produced by Marc Guggenheim and Chad Hammes. ​Chad Quandt and Aaron Waltke serve as co-executive producers.

Tales of Arcadia first launched in 2016 with the Emmy-winning series Trollhunters, including a first-ever Emmy win for del Toro and Rodrigo Blaas for Outstanding Directing, followed by the second installment 3Below in 2018. On the surface, Arcadia appears to be a slice of timeless Americana, but it is no ordinary town. It lies at the center of magical and mystical lines that make it a nexus for many battles among otherworldly creatures including trolls, aliens and wizards.
