MTV’s hit fantasy series “The Shannara Chronicles” is officially moving to Spike! The show’s 10-episode second season will premiere on its new home this fall, with an encore presentation of Season 1 also airing on Spike this summer.
Season two takes place one year after the events of last season. The Four Lands are in chaos - the re-emergence of magic has the populace terrified, and an organization called The Crimson is hunting down magic users, using fear and intimidation to sow discord among the races. Wil, scarred by the loss of Amberle and his separation from Eretria, has turned his back on his magical destiny to become a healer. But when a mysterious woman named Mareth saves Wil from a Crimson attack, he is forced to rejoin the fight.
The new season stars returning cast members Austin Butler (Wil), Ivana Baquero (Eretria), Manu Bennett (Allanon), Aaron Jakubenko (Ander) and Marcus Vanco (Bandon), along with new cast members Vanessa Morgan (Lyria), Malese Jow (Mareth), Gentry White (Garet), Caroline Chikezie (Queen Tamlin), and Desmond Chiam (General Riga).
Stay tuned for an official premiere date for Season 2 in the coming weeks, and make sure to catch the Season 1 rewatch on Spike, starting Thursday, June 29 at 11/10c, immediately following a brand new episode of The Mist.
