MTV made a huge announcement at SDCC this year, during the first-ever comic-con panel for The Shannara Chronicles. Their new fantasy series based on the novels by Terry Brooks will be premiering in January 2016. Production for the series wrapped up last month in New Zealand, and most of the primary cast was able to attend the SDCC panel. Terry Brooks, also serving as an executive producer, was in attendance. There were also appearances by cast members Ivana Baquero, Manu Bennett, Austin Butler, Poppy Drayton, and John Rhys-Davies. The panel was rounded out by executive producers Al Gough and Miles Millar, with Damian Holbrook acting as moderator.
If you are attending San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, you can stop by the MTV booth (#3729) and pick up a special limited edition of The Elfstones of Shannara. This edition comes with an exclusive jacket that will not be available anywhere else.
