AFTER a successful and thrilling first season run, the popular, epic action-adventure series Legend of the Seeker, starring Craig Horner, Bridget Regan and Bruce Spence, returns for a highly-anticipated second season this fall. Shot with the exotic and rugged New Zealand landscape as its backdrop, the weekly series will resume production on 22 all-new action-packed episodes this month. Combining elements of fantasy, adventure, magic, mystery and romance with state of the art visual effects and a high level of action, Legend of the Seeker is an adaptation of internationally best-selling author Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth book series.
When woodsman Richard Cypher's (Craig Horner, Monarch Cove, Blue Water High) life gets turned upside down after discovering that he has a profound destiny to fulfill as the Seeker, he is thrust into an unfamiliar world of magic, sorcery and evil. With Kahlan (Bridget Regan, Sex and the City, Six Degrees), a woman with magical powers of her own, and a wise old wizard named Zedd (Bruce Spence, Mad Max 2, The Matrix Revolutions) by his side, Richard fights to protect innocent lives by confronting dangerous and evil forces.

In the upcoming second season, Richard, Kahlan and Zedd 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, their victory is short-lived as they inadvertently unleashed an even greater evil on the world. "New and even more ferocious villains will be introduced in the next chapter of Richard's journey that will astonish viewers," commented executive producer Ken Biller.
Legend of the Seeker airs Saturdays and Sundays in national syndication. Season two is scheduled to premiere in the Fall of 2009.
