Paramount cancels The Shannara Chronicles TV series

In the midst of Spike TV rebranding itself as the Paramount Network, Paramount has decided to cancel The Shannara Chronicles, reveals TV Guide.

The fantasy drama ran for two seasons, first airing on MTV before moving to Spike for its second season. The series, which was produced by Sonar Entertainment, was based on the Terry Brooks fantasy series, specifically The Sword of Shannara trilogy. Production took place in New Zealand, making it a pretty costly series for MTV and Spike. Paramount decided to pass on renewing it due to this and a ratings decline; the second season ended with 500,000 viewers accounting for DVR as well.

Despite the cancellation, Paramount Network president Kevin Kay did give some hope to fans as Sonor could shop the series around for another home. “We have officially passed on making any more,” he said to TV Guide. “Maybe [Sonar Entertainment] is going to take it somewhere else.

From 'Shape of Water' to Silver Surfer: How Doug Jones Created His Creatures

From 'Shape of Water' to Silver Surfer: How Doug Jones Created His Creatures
Doug Jones can clearly recall his first day filming The Shape of Water, Guillermo del Toro's hand-crafted aquatic fairy tale in which the 57-year-old actor plays a nameless amphibian man who falls for Sally Hawkins' mute cleaning lady in 1960s Baltimore. "We started with a scene in which … I'm chained to a cement block on my knees and being tortured and prodded by Michael Shannon," Jones says. "My first day on set was going through the makeup and costume process, then ending up on my knees on concrete

‘The Shape of Water’ Star Doug Jones: Beneath Foam and Latex, a Best Actor Candidate Shines
In his seven weeks of shooting “The Shape of Water,” the film’s male lead, Doug Jones, could not grasp a doorknob, send a text message, breathe through his mouth, or go to the bathroom while in costume. His call time to the Toronto set was a “mercifully short” three hours earlier than co-stars Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, and Octavia Spencer.

Each morning, four people armed with K-y Jelly shoehorned him into a latex, foam, and rubber bodysuit, built from a cast of his six-foot-three, 140-pound frame. Then came webbed-fingered gloves (glued on), following by a neck and fiberglass helmet, which featured built-in buzzing, whirring mechanics to puppeteer his gills off camera. Once dressed, barely able to see or hear, Jones was required at various times to hang from a hip harness, stand on a smoke-bathed teeter-totter to simulate bobbing in water, and employ scuba diving techniques while acting in a flooded,

Guillermo del Toro Calls ‘The Shape of Water’ His Proudest Achievement: ‘It’s My Favorite Movie’
Guillermo del Toro’s filmography includes such acclaimed titles as “Cronos” and “Pan’s Labyrinth,” but the director tells Collider that he’s proudest of “The Shape of Water.” The filmmaker’s latest stars Sally Hawkins as a mute custodial worker who sparks a romance with an amphibious creature being tested on in a Cold War-era government facility.

The reception is extra sweet for del Toro since the drama is his “most favorite film.”

Doug Jones and Ivana Baquero Recall Their Time on Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’: ‘It Always Makes Me Cry’

Doug Jones and Ivana Baquero Recall Their Time on Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’: ‘It Always Makes Me Cry’
When we talk about Guillermo del Toro, we’re talking about “Pan’s Labyrinth.” That isn’t to slight the Mexican auteur’s eclectic filmography: Everything from “Cronos” and “The Devil’s Backbone” to the two “Hellboy” movies are as imaginative as they are involving, and advance word on “The Shape of Water” suggests it ranks among del Toro’s finest. But “Pan’s Labyrinth,” which has only grown in esteem since opening to widespread acclaim 11 years ago, is a distillation of its maker’s essence.

That’s among the reasons why the Academy hosted a special screening of the film in Los Angeles last night. Programmed as part of their series “From Latin America to Hollywood,” the event included a panel featuring producer Bertha Navarro, cinematographer Guillermo Navarro (who won an Oscar for his work), and actors Doug Jones and Ivana Baquero. Jones, of course, plays the merman in
