For a while it looked like fans of “The Shannara Chronicles” would never see a second-season of the series, then Spike rescued the show and now the network is ready to release season 2. The second season of the hit fantasy series is set to premiere on October 11 at 10pm ET/PT on Spike, and there is even a new trailer to get fans excited for the big return.

The new season consists of 10 one-hour episodes, and as we mentioned before, the first season of the original scripted drama debuted on MTV in 2016. The show itself is based on the best-selling fantasy book series by Terry Brooks, and if you haven’t jumped into the franchise yet, you can find a collection of Brooks’ work here on Amazon.

Season two takes place one year after the events of last season. The Four Lands are in chaos. The re-emergence of magic has the populace terrified, and an organization called The Crimson is hunting down magic users, using fear and intimidation to sow discord among the races. Wil, scarred by the loss of Amberle and his separation from Eretria, has turned his back on his magical destiny to become a healer. But when a mysterious woman named Mareth saves Wil from a Crimson attack, he is forced to rejoin the fight.

“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).
