On May 15th, Paramount Home Video will be releasing the second season of The Shannara Chronicles on DVD and Blu-ray. It will feature all 10 episodes of the series on a 3-disc set. Not much is known about the special features available on the season two release but we do know that we’ll get behind the scenes featurettes with the actors and their characters.
Last we left off, Spike had decided to pass on renewing the fantasy series. Even though it had just moved to Spike from MTV, we’re still hopeful that this series will find a home, especially with shows like Game of Thrones about to finish and leaving a gaping hole in TV when it comes to fantasy.
So make sure to get out there and let your voice be heard across social media, especially on Twitter with the hashtag #RenewShannara, and keep the conversation going for this unique, action-packed, and deserving fantasy series; who left us on a cliffhanger!

Synopsis for season two of The Shannara Chronicles:
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 Ohmsford, scarred by the loss of Amberle and his separation from Eritrea, 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.
