The Shannara Chronicles Premieres On Spike October 11
Fantasy series “The Shannara Chronicles” Season 2 premieres on October 11, 2017 on Spike. The show moves to a new network after one season on MTV. This promises to up the action quite a bit as Spike is the male-centric network of Viacom.
The show will also be deviating from the main story of the books with the consent of Shannara’s creator Terry Brooks. Everything will still be within the world of Shannara which originated in 1977.
Via Press Release:
The second season of the hit fantasy series “The Shannara Chronicles” premieres Wednesday, October 11 at 10pm ET/PT on Spike. The new season consists of 10 one-hour episodes. The first season of the original scripted drama, based on the best-selling fantasy book series by Terry Brooks, debuted on MTV in 2016.
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.
