Description: An Elvish tree, known as the Ellcrys, is dying. The bad news is that the tree has been the only piece of magic that protects the Four Lands from the Demon World. Amberle Elessedil is the only one who can save the tree. But she has to unlock magic that the Elves haven’t used in thousands of years. With the help of Wil Ohmsford, she travels to find the lost magic. But it won’t be an easy task. Based on the Shannara books by Terry Brooks.

Season End Status: The ratings for this show’s first season were not great, especially considering that it was likely an expensive show to produce. But it had very good delayed viewing gains (which the cable channels pay more attention to) and it likely has international financing / partnerships to help defer the costs. Whether that will carry it into a third season remains to be seen.
