Fans of the popular fantasy series, The Shannara Chronicles, have one thing on their minds following the tenuous but action-packed season finale: Will there be a Season 2 of The Shannara Chronicles? The Mar. 1 finale saw emotional upheaval, as Amberle bravely sacrificed herself to the Ellcrys to save the world that she loves. So, fans are left wondering what will come next. The MTV show is based on a series of books by Terry Brooks, so any discerning Shannara devotee will know that there are several stones left unturned. Fortunately hints about Season 2 from the show's creators indicate that there may be a chance we will be seeing the beautiful mugs of Wil Ohmsford (Austin Butler) and Eretria (Ivana Baquero) yet again.
In an interview with Collider, producer duo Al Gough and Miles Millar may have given fans reason to believe that there will be a second season of The Shannara Chronicles.Speaking about the finale of Season 1, Gough said, "There’s certainly a sense of closure, but you see the doors open for subsequent seasons." Seasons, plural. *Insert hands up touchdown Emoji*.
But wait, there's more. Millar went on to corroborate his colleague's story, saying that since there are "a lot of people in jeopardy" at the season's close, it is a good way to open up the story for the next season. The creators also both agreed that it was hard to leave fans satisfied, but also wanting more. "It is tricky to find that balance because you want it to be satisfying," Gough said. And, since they were striving for that kind of ending rather than a neatly tied up one, that's encouraging for a possible second season.
For the last few years, MTV has received plenty of flack for moving away from music programming into reality TV, and it’s tried to combat some criticism by airing its own scripted series as well. Series like Teen Wolf and Faking It have put the network on the young adult map - at least on social media, if not in the ratings game. Over the last year though, MTV decided to shake things up again by not only adding horror series Scream, inspired by the feature film, but also the epic fantasy quest The Shannara Chronicles to its lineup. One of those shows got a renewal (Scream), and is set to return in May. The Shannara Chronicles, which ended its first season a month ago, has yet to receive an official season two pick up or cancellation. MTV should definitely take a chance on the fantasy and give it another season.
While almost 2 most after the first season wrapped up, still nothing has been confirmed. But MTV is planning a season 2, but this time probably 12 episodes. Austin Butler is returning as Wil Ohmsford, while Manu Bennett, Ivan Baquero and Aaron Jakubenko will also return. We probably won't be seeing Poppy Drayton as Amberle soon. While other people will be added to the main cast.
Season 2 is set to start where things stopped. With Will going for Eretria and Allanon probably following him.
Season 2 would be returning this fall, october-January.
