‘The Shannara Chronicles’ is definitely going to be one of our favorite new shows of 2016. The first trailer for the upcoming MTV show was released during the VMAs, and it’s going to be epic. Plus, there’s a hunk by the name of Austin Butler who is starring in it. Click to WATCH!

Hold on tight, The Shannara Chronicles is about to blow your mind. The new MTV show premiered a brand-new trailer during the MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 30. The fantasy show follows Wil (Austin Butler), Eretria (Ivana Baquero) and Amberle (Poppy Drayton) as they fight to save the world from total destruction from a terrible Demon army.

The Shannara Chronicles is taking the plunge into the world of fantasy. The show, based on the series of books by Terry Brooks, is set thousands of years in the future and centers on three main characters. Elvin Princess Amberle, Human Rover Eretria and Half-Elf/Half-Human Wil have to team up to destroy a Demon army that is dead set on annihilating everything.

In the new trailer, we get glimpses of what to expect. In short, it’s going to be intense. Blood is shed, epic fights go down and terrifying creatures fill our screen as we are transported into this future fantasy world. The show is giving off some serious Lord of the Rings vibes, and that’s totally OK with us.  

Wil is one of the last members of the legendary Shannara family, and in addition to saving the world, he’s in the middle of a love triangle between Amberle and Eretria. Pick your ship now, fans.

James Remar, Brooke Williams, Daniel MacPherson and Marcus Vanco also star. The Shannara Chronicles will premiere in Jan. 16, 2016.
