I am happy this morning. We finally have a trailer for The Shannara Chronicles Season 2, and it looks cool. The series ran last year on MTV and features Manu Bennett as Allanon the druid, Austin Butler as Wil Ohmsford, Ivana Baquero as Eretria, and Poppy Drayton as Amberle Elessedil. The story was about a quest to save the Ellcrys, the Elvish tree that protected the Four Lands from the Demon World. A new seed was needed and a band of young adventurers were sent off to find it. It’s a classic fantasy story based on the books by Terry Brooks.
The new season picks up one year later with a new force of darkness threatening the Four Lands, one that can only be stopped with the Sword of Shannara…and like an adventure story, our hero Wil is the only one who can wield it. Benntt, Butler and Baquero return to be joined by Vanessa Morgan as Lyria and Malese Jow as Mareth. Aaron Jakubenko and Marcus Vanco also reprise their roles of Ander and Bandon, respectively.
The series is making a move from MTV to Spike this season and will kick off their sophomore run on Wednesday, October 11th at 11 p.m. ET.
