'Shannara Chronicles' Ivana Baquero Wants A Third Season of The Show For This Reason

'Shannara Chronicles' Ivana Baquero Wants A Third Season of The Show For This Reason

The Shannara Chronicles will air its’ final two episodes of the second season later tonight — and to be honest, we are just not ready for it to end!

It seems that the second season of the fantasy television series just started and it looks like Ivana Baquero, who plays Eretria, is starting a campaign for a third season with the fans of the show.

Speaking with TV Junkies recently, Ivana opened up about how Eretria’s sexuality wants her to keep telling these stories.

“The show has other things like many more diverse characters, and amazing female characters,” she shared. “To be in a show that has all those things is so unique and it makes me want for it to have a third season so, so bad, because I feel it covers so many things, and so many people can feel connected to it.”

We are so game for a third season…and a fourth and fifth, too. Anyone else?

Stay tuned for a sneak peek of tonight’s season finale!

There aren’t that many shows where you really do see a positive, and still standing LGBTQ relationship at the moment — but The Shannara Chronicles is doing it.

Star Ivana Baquero, who plays Eretria on the Spike series, calls herself one of the lucky ones to be able to be a part of the conversation.

“I honestly think it’s so awesome,” she shared in a recent interview with TV Junkies. “I had so many people approach me in Season 1, in fact, about the Amberle and Eretria relationship, and be so passionate about it, and tell me how they felt represented, and how there’s not much of it on TV.”

Ivana says that Eretria’s relationship with Lyria actually came as a surprise to her for season two.

“Season 2 isn’t based on the books, it’s the gap between the second and third books,” she reminded fans. “When I found out she had this relationship I felt so lucky to be able to portray that.”

Ivana continues, “People may like it more or less, or they may feel more or less connected to the story, but we truly did it with so much love, and we hope that they like it.”

“…The show has other things like many more diverse characters, and amazing female characters. To be in a show that has all those things is so unique and it makes me want for it to have a third season so, so bad, because I feel it covers so many things, and so many people can feel connected to it. I feel so, so lucky.”

The Shannara Chronicles airs Wednesdays on Spike.

Austin Butler Teases What Wil Is Doing & Feeling in 'Shannara Chronicles' Season 2

Austin Butler Teases What Wil Is Doing & Feeling in 'Shannara Chronicles' Season 2

Austin Butler teams up with his co-stars Vanessa Morgan, Ivana Baquero, and Manu Bennett for a shot on the press line during 2017 New York Comic Con over the weekend.

The Shannara Chronicles stars spoke about the upcoming second season, which premieres on Wednesday on Spike.

In the new season, it’s a year later and people are not reacting to the re-introduction of magic well and it’s something that Austin‘s Wil is feeling too, and in despair.

“Because it is a year later, I just really played with that feeling of despair,” Austin shared. “The feeling of like, ’I’m doing my best but what am I here for?’”

He adds about seeing Wil in the place he was after in the first place: “It was really interesting to have the same character but really dig into that. Think about – when life starts getting really messy and we start changing as humans. Are we the same person? Can we find love again? Can we find hope again?”

Meanwhile, Manu (Allanon) opened up about one scene that even took him by surprise.

“There’s a big game changer half way through the season that really surprised me,” he says. “They sort of kept it as a big secret and that’s all I can say…”

He added, “But what I do know is that those things we’re talking about in the first season about Allanon’s involvement and relationship with various characters, I got a lot of opportunity this season to get gritty with quite a few characters actually. Wil is one of them.”

Be sure to check back for more Shannara info and tune into the premiere on Wednesday, October 11th on Spike!

Shannara Chronicles' Ivana Baquero Reveals Season 2 Is The Gap Between Books 2 & 3

Ivana Baquero is opening up all about Eretria ahead of The Shannara Chronicles season two premiere.

During her appearance at BUILD Series in New York City on Friday (October 6), the actress dished about learning even more things for season two and just where we are when the series returns.

“For this season, it’s the gap between books two and three,” she shared. “We have some creative liberties there…and for fans, who are wondering what happened between those two books, this is it. It’s super cool.”

“Out of everyone, I think that Eretria drifts most from the books,” Ivana reveals. In fact, her story is going to be much bigger.

Ivana adds that “she’ll find out what that tattoo means on her back, where she is from, and who her parents really are.”

Shannara Chronicles' Ivana Baquero Dishes on How Much Eretria Grew From Season 1 to Season 2

Ivana Baquero wows in a red dress at People Magazine’s ‘Ones To Watch’ Party held at NeueHouse Hollywood on Wednesday night (October 4) in Los Angeles.

The Shannara Chronicles actress joined co-star Vanessa Morgan, as well as Rise‘s Auli’i Cravalho and Damon J. Gillespie, James Maslow, Chandler Kinney and Alexandra Shipp.

In a recent interview, Ivana opened up about Eretria’s growth we’ll see in season two of the show.

“Eretria undergoes a remarkable transformation in Season 1. Essentially, she goes from being selfish to selfless, and in the quest to save her life and the world from a demon invasion, she learns about love, compassion, and friendship.”

She adds, “By the end of Season 1, you’d think she’s ‘completed’ her arch, but little do we realize that she has yet to learn the most important thing about herself — which she will explore in Season 2 — who she really is and where she comes from.”

Wil & Eretria Have An Unbreakable Bond on 'Shannara Chronicles', Ivana Baquero Says

Wil & Eretria Have An Unbreakable Bond on 'Shannara Chronicles', Ivana Baquero Says

We’re only a week away from The Shannara Chronicles season two premiere and Ivana Baquero is giving us just a little taste of what we’re going to see.

There are new characters, a new big bad in The Crimson, and there’s life beyond Arborlon in The Four Lands — but one thing will never change and that’s Eretria and Wil’s bond.

“Whether romantically or not, Wil and Eretria will always be destined to have a future together,” Ivana shared in a recent interview.

She adds, “They’ve been through so much together that inevitably they share a unique and unbreakable bond. Amidst pains and scars left behind from Season 1, Wil and Eretria will find a way to each other in Season 2.”

The Shannara Chronicles returns on Wednesday, October 11th @ 10PM ET/PT on Spike.

We have two weeks until The Shannara Chronicles is back on our television screens and the writers are giving us a major preview in a new featurette.

“We didn’t want to go back to Arborlon, we wanted to see something different,” Miles Mallar shared. “So we built the whole Palace of Leah. Very gold, very blingy and very different from the Elves.”

Al Gough adds, “We’ll also see Storlock, which is kind of a gnome village and they are the best healers in the Four Lands.”

Other places on the map we’ll see this season include Graymark, Skull Mountain, and more.
