Attention: Shannara Chronicles fans, there’s a big change coming to the show. The MTV drama is moving networks in season 2.
Variety reports that the popular fantasy series will be shifting from MTV to Spike in season 2, ahead of MTV’s rebranding as The Paramount Network. Spike and MTV are both currently under the Viacom parent company, so there are no hard feelings here.
“After much consideration, it was decided that the second season of The Shannara Chronicles will air on Spike,” an MTV spokesperson said in a statement.
The switch will no affect any of the show’s cast or creators, just where you can watch.
“We’re honored to have worked with our extraordinary production partner, Sonar Entertainment, along with fantasy visionaries and Executive Producers, Al Gough, Miles Millar, Jon Favreau, Jonathan Liebesman and Dan Farah along with Executive Producer and best-selling author of the book series, Terry Brooks,” the statement read. “We’re pleased that fans of the beloved franchise will be able to follow the characters and epic story they love on its new network.”
The good news is that The Shannara Chronicles, starring Austin Butler, Ivana Baquero, and Poppy Drayton, will be back. The not-so-good news is that you have to get Spike in order to watch it.
Okay, so it’s not really bad news at all, but make sure you remember what network the series will be on so you don’t miss a single episode of elf-centered show!
