The last we saw of ‘Legend of the Seeker’ was in May 2010. Fans have been discussing the date for a new season, but there is no answer from the makers yet.
Iconic shows like ‘Legend of the Seeker’ always tend to create a very visual experience for the viewers, which is why viewers can never get enough of them. Luckily, their prayers were heard. After 10 years, the legendary characters might be all set to hit the screens again, all thanks to Walt Disney.
- What has been happening with the fans?
- What is the current status of this show?
Disney has always been notorious for chasing profits and cashing in on emotional attachments (a big wink to ‘Mulan’!), therefore, with requests, re-runs, and petitions flowing around this series, it seems like the perfect cha-ching situation for them. Read on for some more inside scoop!
What has been happening with the fans?
It has been about 10 years since the last episode aired and fans still cannot seem to get over this loss. ‘Legend of the Seeker’ was no common TV show. According to some viewers, it didn’t just hold powers to engage a person, it changed them entirely. It had a mysterious capacity to change individuals, to improve them for the better!
When confronted about the reasons behind their continued hope for the show, the fans stated, “In the event that fans can ask Tolkien to compose another part for ‘The Lord of The Rings’ or Martin to write more of ‘GOT’, why shouldn’t we?” Various letters, emails, and petitions have since been lodged by these fans in the hope to revive the show. These fans think that the show ended on an abrupt note. They were not ready to let go of the show just yet.
What is the status of this show?
Various interviewers actually managed to extract some solid information. Sam Raimi, the producer of this series, started looking for a buyer for the rights of the show after ABC refused to continue and fund it.
This was mainly because of the love of the viewers. He confessed that he appreciates them and wanted to help their hopes get some wind.
According to various sources, the license for the ownership of these rights was sold twice and, now, it has finally been acquired by Walt Disney and they are hell-bent creating a third season!
Recently, quite a few years after the release of the second season, shooting has begun for the third season produced by Disney.
So, yes, there is hope for another instalment to hit the screens, soon enough.
Viewers are already ecstatic and have started re-watching the first two parts along with their children. They seem happy to have the chance to pass on an amazing delight to the next generation and bring ‘Legend of the Seeker’ back.
Alas, there is no proper information about the release date yet given the pandemic situation, but rest assured they are coming back!
