Alas, the Seeker’s journey has ended. According to Entertainment Weekly – Ausiello Files, the syndicated show (based on the novels by Terry Goodkind) has seen its last battle. Creators Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert tried to find a new home for the show, but sadly no one would bite.
I’m sad to see the show end, but I can’t say that I’m surprised by this news. This is Seeker’s second season and its been a lack luster year compared to its first season. It’s a shame that “Legend of the Seeker” could not get past their sophomore slump even though they had some big name guests such as Academy Award nominee Keisha Castle-Hughes (“Whale Rider”) and Jonathan Rhys-Davies (“The Lord of the Rings”).
Is there still hope that “Legend of the Seeker” may return for a 3rd season? Signs point to “no” as Bridget Regan, who plays Kahlan Amnell, announced on Twitter that she will be returning to the States.

**UPDATE: Watch the “Legend of the Seeker” Season 2 Sneak Peek Video that premiered at Comic-Con here.**
It was announced during the panel discussion at Comic-Con that Season 2 of “Legend of the Seeker” will premiere the weekend of November 7th. Also announced during the panel was that Tabrett Bethell will become a series regular. Bethell played a Mord Sith named Cara in the Season One Finale: “Reckoning”.
Here is what we can expect from Season 2:
In the upcoming second season, Richard (Craig Horner), Kahlan (Bridget Regan) and Zedd (Bruce Spence) will encounter an array of rich and compelling new characters, both good and evil, and they will be tested in ways that they never could have imagined. The trio will discover that in defeating the bloodthirsty tyrant Darken Rahl (Craig Parker), their victory is short-lived as they inadvertently unleashed an even greater evil on the world.
Judging from this description, it looks like Season 2 will follow the second novel in the “Sword of Truth” series which is “Stone of Tears”.
Very exciting! Can’t wait to see the Season 2 premiere! Charisma Carpenter (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) will guest star in the premiere as a Mord Sith named Triana.

Have you ever wondered how the 1st season of “Legend of the Seeker” compares to the book? Read my Book vs. Show post comparing the 1st season to the 1st novel of the series, “Wizard’s First Rule”.
Season 1 of “Legend of the Seeker” has come to a close and summer reruns has commenced. Before the 2nd season starts, I thought this would be a good time to go through the season as a whole and how it relates to the book. Season One is based upon the first book, “Wizard’s First Rule”, of the “Sword of Truth” series by Terry Goodkind. While the show has taken some creative liberties, for the most part…I feel the core of the book is well adapted to the small screen. For those who haven’t read “Wizard’s First Rule”, this post is chock full of spoilers. I am going to try to relate the book to the relevant episodes on the show. Some of the questions that I will answer in this Book vs. Show rundown are: Is Darken Rahl really dead? Are Darken Rahl and Richard Cypher brothers? Finally…my thoughts on what to expect for Season 2 of “Legend of the Seeker”.
