Oddly enough, The Wife really got into the Shannara Chronicles on MTV. Fortunately there will be a season two, but it won’t be on MTV, as Paramount announced it is moving to the Spike network.
It’s weird that we live in a day and age that shows can jump networks easily and audiences don’t blink. Of course Spike and MTV are both owned by Viacom so the move is much easier than say jumping from NBC to ABC. A similar thing happened with the second season of Supergirl when it made the move from CBS to The CW (owned in part by CBS).
Back to Shannara – the 10-episode second season will air in the fall, and will take place one year after the season one finale.
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.
I kind of lost track of Shannara Chronicles after the third episode. Is it worth catching back up on, or just skip it?
