Though their original fare so far has been teen-centric series takes on old horror/comedy film franchises like “Scream” and “Teen Wolf,” MTV is branching out into other genres with one of their latest being a series adaptation of Terry Brooks’ fantasy novel saga “The Shannara Chronicles”.
The show’s first season will be based on the second book “The Elfstones of Shannara” and today comes the first photos of the three actors who play the series’ leads – Ivana Baquero as Eretria, Austin Butler as Will Ohmsford, and Poppy Drayton as Amberle Elessedil.
The series is set in a world where an ancient magical tree was created by the elves to keep demons away. Now the tree is dying, and demons have begun making their way into the world again. Further information about the show is expected to be revealed at Comic Con later this week.
