The series is set in our world, thousands of years after the destruction of our civilization. The story is centered on the Shannara family, whose descendants are empowered with ancient magic and whose adventures continuously reshape the future of the world. The first season will be based on "The Elfstones of Shannara," the second title in the series, a fan favorite which spent 16 weeks on the New York Times' Bestseller list and is accredited with cementing the series' place in the fantasy world.
"Shannara" is produced by Sonar Entertainment. Al Gough and Miles Millar write and executive produce the series. Jon Favreau, Jonathan Liebesman, Terry Brooks and Dan Farah serve as executive producers.
