The Shannara Chronicles Season One aired this year, following the adventures of Elf-Human hybrid Wil (Austin Butler, Arrow), Elvin Princess Amberle (Poppy Drayton, Downton Abbey), and Human Rover Eretria (Ivana Baquero) as they tried to save the world from a demon army by restoring the only magic that had held the evil back. Fighting to stay alive long enough for the trio to find their goal are the druid Allanon (Manu Bennett) and the Elves and their king (John Rhys-Davies). If you missed the series’ airing on MTV, or watched it and want to re-watch it, you can buy the four-disc DVD set starting June 7, 2016. No word yet on whether or not there will be a Blu-Ray release at the same time, but we can hope.
The set includes the ten episodes of the series plus thirty minutes of behind-the-scenes footage.
The Shannara Chronicles season one is available for pre-order from Amazon now.
DVD SPECIAL FEATURES:

Although the set is optimistically labeled “Season One,” we don’t actually know yet whether or not there will be a season two. If there is, it will probably follow The Wishsong of Shannara but with some major changes as the end of The Chronicles of Shannara appears to set things up for a continuation rather than a sequel. What do you think of the idea?
