A year after the events of last season, The Four Lands is in chaos. The re-emergence of magic has the populace terrified, and an organization called The Crimson is hunting down magic users, using fear and intimidation to sow discord among the races. Wil, scarred by the loss of Amberle and his separation from Eretria, has turned his back on his magical destiny to become a healer. But when a mysterious woman named Mareth saves Wil from a Crimson attack, he is forced to rejoin the fight. After reuniting with Eretria, Wil and Mareth seek out Allanon, only to learn that the Druid’s former protégé, Bandon, is on a mission to resurrect a creature of darkest evil: The Warlock Lord. Together, our heroes must band together to take down The Crimson and prevent Bandon from unleashing an even greater threat upon the Four Lands, before it’s too late.

Teen fantasy. As before, those wishing to do so will find much to criticize. Certain cast clearly chosen for looks rather than acting ability. Too much trite dialogue. Some dodgy special effects. Several ludicrous "in the nick of time" escapes. Perhaps more serious this time round, liberties taken with events in the original novels.
Far better than nit-pick, some may prefer simply to sit back and make the most of what is presented here. That was my policy. Admittedly Austin Butler seems a little lightweight for Wil the Shannara, but he is likeable and one hopes he will succeed. With more depth than most is Bandon, he now with evil intent - largely because of all who made him suffer when younger. Surely he is destined for a change of heart, perhaps even to save the day? Visually there is much to admire: imaginative sets, some glorious scenery. Good action too.
Ten episodes. No bonuses. A third season was intended, but apparently this is not to be.
In short? Potential may not have been realized, but there is still much to please.
