The Shannara Chronicles: New Cast & Official Season 2 Synopsis Revealed

There are five new faces that are joining The Shannara Chronicles season two — and some of them are familiar.

Malese Jow, Vanessa Morgan, Gentry White, Caroline Chikezie and Desmond Chiam will be the new faces you’ll see once the new season premieres.

Austin Butler (Wil), Ivana Baquero (Eretria), Manu Bennet (Allanon), Aaron Jakubenko (Ander), and Marcus Vanco (Bandon) will all be returning to the show as well.

In season two, 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.

Shawn Mendes to Make Acting Debut in 'Summer of Love' Musical

Shawn Mendes is breaking into the acting industry!

The 18-year-old “Mercy” singer will make his debut on the big screen in the upcoming movie musical Summer of Love, according to THR.

The script was written by fellow Canadian Ivan Reitman, who will also direct.

Plot details are scarce, but the title is apparently in reference to the summer of 1967 when hippies demonstrated their opposition to the Vietnam War in San Francisco.

That summer, a ton of famous acts – including The Who, Grateful Dead, and Jimi Hendrix – performed.

In case you forgot, Shawn voiced a character in the 2013 animated film Underdogs and had a brief guest stint on The 100.
