Based on the ratings, things already didn’t look good and then they started airing two episodes a night which smelled like a burnoff. The Viacom execs have been shuffling programs on their channels (including BET, CMT, TV Land, VH1, and MTV) so they may be okay with this big dip in the ratings as they try to establish the new Paramount Network. I’ll keep a hungry eye out and will update this page with breaking developments (and, hopefully, my supper plans).

I just found the Shannara Chronicles on Netflix. I did not have cable for years – couldn’t afford it – but I have Netflix now and it’s OVER already??? I watched 5 episodes and I see I have to watch all the rest before Saturday??? Well, this stinks! Who do I write? Is there a petition?
Please Sisson 3
I just started watching Shannara Chronicles. And just ended the second season. I asked how many books there was and when the last season was put out on Netflix. I am completely down heard they canceled it. How dumb!! It needs to go on!! My mom read the book when she was a teenager. I want to see what happens in the coming seasons!! Bring it back!! This is something that needs or should be out there on Netflix or whatever they can continue it. Elves, gnomes, and so on. It is such an incredible show. Bring Shannara chronicles back!!!
Loved the show! So sad it was cancelled! guess i will have to read the books again.
Really enjoyed this season. Really hoping it will come back
PLEASE bring the show back for a third and subsequent seasons. I recently discovered these on a streaming app I use and am almost done with the second season. I’m hooked! Even if I didn’t love the show, it’d be hard to stop watching with the likes of Eritria steaming up the screen. WOW! DEFINATELY THE MOST STRIKING WOMAN IVE EVER SEEN! I read the Shannara books when I was young so im super stoked to watch it play out on screen. KEEP IT GOING!
