The hit fantasy series THE SHANNARA CHRONICLES based on the best-selling book series of the same name, written by Terry Brooks, is coming to Blu-Ray/DVD.

Originally airing on MTV for its first season, the series moved to Spike TV head of the network's pending change to the Paramount Network. For this reason, many fans of the first season may have missed the opportunity to catch up with Wil, Allanon, and the rest of the gang.

This May, fans of the "Four Lands" will be able to catch up with the second season as all 10 episodes land on Blu-Ray and DVD on May 15! Dubbed as "Television's best fantasy series" by Forbes the Blu-Ray will come packed with special features like Behind-the-Scenes Extras.

Overview:

Season Two finds the Four Lands 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 Ohmsford, scarred by the loss of Amberle and his separation from Eritrea, 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. After reuniting with Eretria, Wil and Mareth seek out Allanon, only to learn that the Druid’s former protégé, Bandon, is on a mission to resurrect a creature of darkest evil: The Warlock Lord. Together, our heroes must band together to take down The Crimson and prevent Bandon from unleashing an even greater threat upon the Four Lands…before it’s too late.

The three-disc Blu-ray or DVD set includes all 10 episodes from the second season as well behind-the-scenes featurettes on the characters, actors and more.

Commentary: THE SHANNARA CHRONICLES third season is being shopped to yet another network, in hopes of being picked up. Fans would benefit by supporting the series through picking up Season 2 on Blu-Ray. High sales of the series would be more reason for a network to pick it up in hopes that viewers would tune in.
