The Shannara Chronicles exec producers Al Gough and Miles Millar have confirmed plans for Season 2, though the first season will also have a “sense of closure” in case cancellation strikes, per Collider:
GOUGH: Hopefully, it will be both. There’s certainly a sense of closure, but you see the doors open for subsequent seasons.
MILLAR: We liked the idea that it was a contained season, following the story of the Elfstones, and it has an amazing ending that’s a really bold way to end the season. But, it also opens it up for future seasons. We leave a lot of people in jeopardy.
GOUGH: It is tricky to find that balance because you want it to be satisfying. What you don’t want is The Killing, where you get to the end and you don’t do either.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the status of Shannara Chronicles Season 2…
