In accordance with the show beginning production, MTV has released details for the upcoming second season of The Shannara Chronicles.
When we last left The Four Lands, Amberle fulfilled her destiny by becoming the new Ellcrys, while Eretria found herself captured by Trolls, the Dagda Moor was beheaded by Allanon with a major assist from Wil, and Ander seized the throne at long last.
Season two picks up a year following the events of the finale and focuses on a reemergence of magic that terrifies the citizens of Arbolorn, thanks to a shadowy organization called The Crimson charged with hunting down anyone practicing sorcery and sewing discord among the citizenry of The Four Lands. Meanwhile, a still mourning Wil is forced to abandon his plans to become a healer and rejoin the fight when he’s saved from a Crimson attack; fortunately, he’s soon reunited with Eretria and the two venture off the find Allanon. Only they’re confronted with Bandon’s journey to the dark side, which includes a mission to resurrect an evil known as The Warlock Lord.
Joining the cast of The Shannara Chronicles for season two are Malese Jow (Star-Crossed) as Mareth, the unpredictable, independent young woman who rescues Wil from the Crimson and forms an instant connection with the half-elf; Vanessa Morgan (Finding Carter) as Lyria, a mysterious young woman romantically linked to Eretria; Desmond Chiam (NCIS) as General Rigam, a former top dog under Evertine whose fingerprints are all over the chaos in The Four Lands; Gentry White (UnREAL) as charismatic bounty hunter Garet, known throughout the Four Lands as The Weapons Master; and Caroline Chikezie (Everly) as Queen Tamlin, the ruler of the only human kingdom in The Four Lands.
Season two of The Shannara Chronicles will premiere later this year on MTV. The
