Austin Butler Teases What Wil Is Doing & Feeling in 'Shannara Chronicles' Season 2

Austin Butler teams up with his co-stars Vanessa Morgan, Ivana Baquero, and Manu Bennett for a shot on the press line during 2017 New York Comic Con over the weekend.

The Shannara Chronicles stars spoke about the upcoming second season, which premieres on Wednesday on Spike.

In the new season, it’s a year later and people are not reacting to the re-introduction of magic well and it’s something that Austin‘s Wil is feeling too, and in despair.

“Because it is a year later, I just really played with that feeling of despair,” Austin shared. “The feeling of like, ’I’m doing my best but what am I here for?’”

He adds about seeing Wil in the place he was after in the first place: “It was really interesting to have the same character but really dig into that. Think about – when life starts getting really messy and we start changing as humans. Are we the same person? Can we find love again? Can we find hope again?”

Meanwhile, Manu (Allanon) opened up about one scene that even took him by surprise.

“There’s a big game changer half way through the season that really surprised me,” he says. “They sort of kept it as a big secret and that’s all I can say…”

He added, “But what I do know is that those things we’re talking about in the first season about Allanon’s involvement and relationship with various characters, I got a lot of opportunity this season to get gritty with quite a few characters actually. Wil is one of them.”

Be sure to check back for more Shannara info and tune into the premiere on Wednesday, October 11th on Spike!
