Circumstances beyond my control kept me away from the computer Sunday and Monday and wowzers! Here are three things that stood out for me: ABC set a premiere date for its Marvel series, Inhumans; Spike acquired season one of The Shannara Chronicles (which will air after The Mist); Hulu announced the addition of Sissy Spacek and Jane Levy to the cast of Castle Rock.
Terry Brooks’ Shannara novels have outsold almost every other writer of epic fantasy (J.K. Rowling being the only exception) and has a worldwide following.
MTV is bringing the series to television as The Shannara Chronicles and screened a first look video at Comic-Con. It looks like it has Game of Thrones potential – great cast (John Rhys-Davies, James Remar, Ivana Banquero), great locations (New Zealand) and terrific effects (WETA!).
Check it out after the jump. The Shannara Chronicles premiere in January 2016.
