The Shannara Chronicles has been axed at MTV, but the second season will survive on sibling network Spike TV (soon to be Paramount Network), where it will air this fall.
In a statement, MTV said:
After much consideration, it was decided that the second season of The Shannara Chronicles will air on Spike. We’re honored to have worked with our extraordinary production partner, Sonar Entertainment, along with fantasy visionaries and executive producers Al Gough, Miles Millar, Jon Favreau, Jonathan Liebesman and Dan Farah along with executive producer and best-selling author of the book series, Terry Brooks. We’re pleased that fans of the beloved franchise will be able to follow the characters and epic story they love on its new network.”
The future beyond Shannara Season 2 is naturally unclear, particularly given the show’s departure from its original network and Spike’s upcoming rebranding.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the renew/cancel status of The Shannara Chronicles Season 3 at its new home…
