Shannara Chronicles season 2 moves to Spike

The second season of The Shannara Chronicles will move from MTV to Spike.

According to Collider, “The Shannara Chronicles is shifting from MTV to Spike before the channel’s re-branding as The Paramount Network. The move comes during restructuring by Viacom, the parent company for both channels.”

The first season of this adaptation of Terry Brooks’ epic fantasy series will be airing on Spike starting June 29. No release date has been announced yet for season 2.

Season one stars who will be returning include Austin Butler, Ivana Baquero, Manu Bennett, Aaron Jakubenko, and Marcus Vanco. The cast will be joined by Vanessa Morgan, Malese Jow, Gentry White, Caroline Chikezie, and Desmond Chiam.

The story will pick up one year after the events of the first season. Here is the synopsis of season 2:

“A year after the events of last season, The Four Lands is 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. After reuniting with Eretria, Wil and Mareth seek out Allanon, only to learn that the Druid’s former protégé, Bandon, is on a mission to resurrect a creature of darkest evil: The Warlock Lord. Together, our heroes must band together to take down The Crimson and prevent Bandon from unleashing an even greater threat upon the Four Lands, before it’s too late.”
