Season two of The Shannara Chronicles is debuting in October and co-showrunners Miles Millar and Al Gough are here to give us hints at the new season. You might recognize their names from a show the created called Smallville. Now they're playing in a world that author Terry Brooks has been building for four decades. The first season was all about three young heroes going on an epic quest to save the world from evil.
If you're familiar with the 26-book series, you may know that the first season adapted the Elfstones of Shannara, the second book in the series. And that is where the story ended for characters like Wil Ohmsford (Austin Butler) and Eretria (Ivana Baquero) while the next book continues with Allonon (Manu Bennett) many years later. But the series, with Brooks blessing and input, will continue the tale of Wil and his friends in the new season. They're adding new material to the world of Shannara.
The series picks up one year later and deal with the ramifications of the war that was fought. Magic is back, the Elves were devastated and the world is not in a very good place. The video below gives a lot of details about the upcoming season and what fans can expect.
The Shannara Chronicles returns for season 2 on October 11th, on their new network Spike.
