Report: Legend of the Seeker axed?

Fantasy series Legend of the Seeker, shot in New Zealand, has reportedly been cancelled.

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that fantasy-adventure series Legend of the Seeker has been cancelled by the Tribune Station Group.

The series, which had been developed from Terry Goodkind’s fantasy novels by Hercules/Xena producers Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert, has reportedly been shopped around by ABC Studios but without luck.

Filmed in New Zealand, the series has been airing on FOX8 in Australia.

Two seasons of 40 episodes have been produced so far.

  1. Apparently now confirmed via Twitter from one of the main executive producers.

    Such a shame. I hope the ending already filmed for season 2 wasn’t a cliff-hanger, although there are always the books to “complete” the series (but they’re quite different in tone and include some pretty shocking acts of violence against the (female) leads).

  2. So now is a good time to start watching?

    I’ve been sitting on the first season for a while, just never got around to watching them, and just realized Fox8 has just completed the first season. Any news on the 2nd or a re-run of the first for those who missed it?

  3. Bummer if true.

    While it cannot compare to the pure awesomeness of “Spartacus: Blood and Sand”, it is a pretty enjoyable show and provides plenty of opportunities for hot chicks to fight one another in the grand tradition of “Xena: Warrior Princess”.

    Hopefully Tabrett Bethell (sp?) and Bridget Regan (sp?) can be added as hot slave girls to season 2 of Spartacus (once Andy Whitfield is fully recovered).
