Reportedly the producer, Sonar Entertainment, is shopping season three of The Shannara Chronicles to other outlets. Shannara and its fans are used to moving. Despite the fact that its first season was the number one scripted series on MTV, parent company Viacom moved it to Spike TV for season two, ahead of that cable channel’s rebranding as Paramount Network, which happens this Thursday.
The Shannara Chronicles stars Austin Butler, Ivana Baquero, Manu Bennett, Aaron Jakubenko, Marcus Vanco, Vanessa Morgan, Malese Jow, Gentry White, Caroline Chikezie, and Desmond Chiam.
