The fantasy drama will not make the move to Paramount Network.
January 16, 2018
It is being reported that The Shannara Chronicles will not be returning for a third season. The moves comes just days ahead of the launch of Paramount Network, which the show's current network, Spike, is being rebranded to on Thursday.
The fantasy drama started out in 2016 on MTV, where it became the cable network's top-rated scripted original that year. The series made a move to Spike for Season 2, which aired last fall, but ratings were off considerably from what they were in Season 1. With Spike now rebranding to Paramount Network, the show obviously did not fit in with their programming strategy going forward.
Adapted from the best-selling Shannara series of novels by Terry Brooks, The Shannara Chronicles takes place thousands of years after the fall of mankind and civilization. With the Four Lands now in great danger, the fate of the world rests in the hands of an unlikely trio consisting of an Elven Princess, a human rover, and a half-human half-elf. Together they embark on a quest to prevent a demon army from destroying the Four Lands.

Guess Paramount Channel will lose several watchers if it cancels good shows like this.

I think the mistake was moving it to Spike in the first place. Completely different audience on Spike than MTV. It was well done. A little fluffier than the books but still well done. All the fantasy fans in my household loved it. I hope another channel picks it up and continues it.

Of course they end the season on a major cliffhanger...can't say I'm surprised, but NOOOOOOO!

Terrible show, just terrible. Terry Brooks is a sellout for the paycheck sadly. With MTV doing it, it was destined to be a CW wannabe and never had a chance to be the next Game of Thrones.
