Spike TV is getting rebranded to the Paramount Network, so it’s out with the old and in with the new.
It’s learned the network will not be ordering any new episodes of The Shannara Chronicles, which is based on the Terry Brooks fantasy novel series.
“We have officially passed on making any more,” Paramount Network president Kevin Kay told TV Guide. “Maybe [Sonar Entertainment] is going to take it somewhere else. For us, we passed on the future of that.”
It is confirmed Sonar Entertainment is indeed shopping The Shannara Chronicles around for a Season 3 as EW.com confirms the studio behind the series has begun shopping it around to potential other networks, including streaming outlets that may want to capitalize on the series’ epic scope.
The Shannara Chronicles stars Austin Butler (Wil), Ivana Baquero (Eretria), Manu Bennett (Allanon), Aaron Jakubenko (Ander) and Marcus Vanco (Bandon) along with new cast members Vanessa Morgan (Lyria), Malese Jow (Mareth), Gentry White (Garet), Caroline Chikezie (Queen Tamlin), and Desmond Chiam (General Riga).
The Shannara Chronicles is a Sonar Entertainment production created by Al Gough and Miles Millar based on the Shannara series of books written by Terry Brooks. The series is executive produced by Gough and Millar, Brooks, Jon Favreau, Jonathan Liebesman, Dan Farah, Tom Lesinski and Jenna Santoianni. The series is produced and distributed worldwide by Sonar Entertainment in association with Millar/Gough Ink and Farah Films.
