The Shannara Chronicles — Official First Look

Looks like MTV is getting into the Swords and Sorcery business.  This video was shown at Comic-Con 2015.

The Shannara Chronicles is a 10-episode series that’s set to screen in early 2016.  If it’s a hit, there’s plenty of material for more episodes; it’s based on an epic fantasy by Terry Brooks, who has published somewhere north of 30 (30!) novels in the series.  George R. R. Martin, please take note.

I haven’t read any of the 30+ books, lacking, as I do, both any great interest in epic fantasy novels and an attention span longer than seven minutes.  But I do love Game of Thrones (the TV series) and Lord of the Rings (the movies.)  I’ll have to find where MTV is on Comcast’s channel grid, because I’ll be checking this out.

BTW, “I remember when MTV played music videos.” = “I’m really old.”

    Like you imply, there’s little chance that the Shannara TV show would be in danger of running out of source material to adapt, or be waiting on Brooks to finish the next novel…

    (I like to kid myself that GRRM has actually finished A Dream of Spring, and is just torturing us fans with worry.)
