Based on the Shannara book series by Terry Brooks, The Shannara Chronicles is a fantasy TV show set in a post-apocalyptic world in which humanity has lost most of its medical and technological wisdom and now lives alongside elves and other mythical creatures. So much to the setting. At the beginning of the series, we get to know that the Ellcrys, an elvish tree, is dying. Every leaf stands for a demon and once the last leaf has fallen, there is nothing left that protects the Four Lands from the Demon World. The only one who can save the Ellcrys is the elvish princess Amberle Elessedil.

Yay or nay?

Fans of Terry Brooks’ books or the fantasy genre in general will definitely enjoy this series. The fast pace, fresh actors and beautiful visuals are a joy to behold.
