Go Behind the Scenes of MTV’s The Shannara Chronicles with These Set Photos

At San Diego Comic-Con, readers of Terry Brooks’ The Shannara Chronicles were delighted to get a detailed look at MTV’s upcoming adaptation of the fantasy series. MTV hasn’t stopped there: Even though the series doesn’t premiere for nearly six more months, the network is building up buzz with fans old and new by posting tons of behind-the-scenes photos.

We get to see the gorgeous New Zealand landscape standing in for the Four Lands, meet our trio—Chosen elf Amberle, half-human/half-elf Wil, and thief Eretria—and even glimpse Brooks himself on the set.

Druid Allanon takes in the gorgeous sights:

The interiors are just as impressive—here’s Arborlon Palace:

Inside the palace, there’s plenty of royal intrigue, like King Eventine (John Rhys-Davies!) and his son Ander discussing just what all is going on with Amberle and the Chosen:

Keep your eyes peeled for a Terry Brooks cameo somewhere in season 1!

And here’s Wil, Amberle, and Eretria again, clearly up to no good:

Not enough photos for you? MTV’s got a whole Tumblr full of behind-the-scenes goodies, so be sure to check there for more videos, GIFs, and character intel. The Shannara Chronicles will premiere on MTV in January 2016.
