The Shannara Chronicles


OVERVIEW


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

"The Shannara Chronicles" is an epic television event based on the sweeping, best-selling fantasy book series by Terry Brooks. Set thousands of years in the future, the story follows three heroes, Elf-Human hybrid Wil, Elvin Princess Amberle, and Human Rover Eretria, as they embark on a quest to stop an evil Demon army from destroying the world.  The 10-episode first season of “The Shannara Chronicles” will premiere January 5 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on MTV, immediately following the return of fan-favorite, "Teen Wolf" at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. 
 
Episode 101/102 – "CHOSEN" PARTS 1 AND 2    
Thousands of years after the fall of Humankind, the Four Lands is in grave danger. The fate of the world rests on the shoulders of an unlikely trio: an Elvin Princess who dreams of a life outside of the palace walls, a beautiful, wild and wily Human Rover and a half-elf, who knows nothing of the great destiny that runs through his veins.
 
Having seen an apocalyptic vision of the world’s destruction, Amberle leaves the palace in search of answers. But when Wil and Allanon realize that she is the key to saving the Four Lands, they set out to
find the princess before the Dagda Mor’s Demons hunt her down.
 
“The Shannara Chronicles” stars genre favorites, John Rhys-Davies (“Lord of the Rings”) and Manu Bennett (“Spartacus”), along with young Hollywood stars-on-the-rise, Austin Butler (“The Carrie Diaries”), Poppy Drayton (“When Calls The Heart”) and Ivana Baquero (“Pan’s Labyrinth”).
 
“The Shannara Chronicles” is written for television by and executive produced by Al Gough and Miles Millar. Jon Favreau, Jonathan Liebesman, Terry Brooks and Dan Farah also serve as executive producers. The first two episodes were directed by Jonathan Liebesman (“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”). MTV is producing with Sonar Entertainment, which is also distributing the series worldwide.
