The Shannara Chronicles Moves to Spike for Season two
The Shannara Chronicles, which originally aired its first season on MTV in 2016, will air its second season next month on Spike. The move didn’t seem to get a lot of media attention, leaving many to wonder if the series starring Austin Bulter, Ivana Baquero, Manu Bennett and more, had been canceled even after MTV announced that it would be getting a second season back in April of 2016. The move wasn’t announced until May of this year.
The Shannara Chronicles series is an adaption of the fantasy book trilogy by Terry Brooks who is also an executive producer on the show. The television version loosely revolves around the second book of the trilogy The Elfstones of Shannara. While the first book is centered on two brothers, Shea and Flick Ohmsford and their quest to get the Sword of Shannara to defeat a Warlock Lord and protect the Four Lands, the second book and show feature Shea’s grandson, Wil played by Bulter.
The series is currently available to stream on Netflix. Spike also marathoned the first season this summer and made it available on their website and app. The second season will follow Wil and the others one year after the events of season one. The show will go on without Elvin princess Amberle, played by Poppy Drayton, who was written out at the end of the last season.
Check out the trailer for the second season of The Shannara Chronicles below. New episodes start on October 11th at 10/9 C.
