Lucky British folks have already enjoyed the fantasy series "A Discovery of Witches," which premiered there in September.

Now the series, based on the books by Deborah Harkness, finally has a US release date. Beginning January 17, the full 8-episode season will be available for streaming on both Sundance Now and Shudder, according to EW.

The series stars Teresa Palmer as Diana Bishop, who happens to be a witch and a historian of science. A long-lost book leads her to vampire Matthew de Clermont (Matthew Goode).

If you didn't know, witches and vampires aren't supposed to consort with each other, so their romance is as forbidden, as, say, Selene and Michael's in "Underworld."
