Legend of the Seeker
- 2 Seasons
The television program Legend of the Seeker aired for two seasons on ABC, beginning on November 1, 2008 and ending in 2010. The television program of Legend of the Seeker was produced by Disney and was based around the novels The Sword of Truth, written by Terry Goodkind. The television program follows around a young woods guide who goes by Richard Cypher. Other members of the story include Kahlan Amnel, a wizard known as Zeddicus and a warrior known as Cara. These different individuals in Legend of the Seeker all helped guard and protect individuals from destruction. However, if you have read the books or known the written timeline, you'll find the Legend of the Seeker television program is completely different from what the books are. For the most part, Legend of the Seeker is simply based in the world of The Sword of Truth and not the actual events written by in the book. The series was canceled for several different reasons. For starters the overall ratings of the Legend of the Seeker program weren't terrible, but for the cost of production, it just wasn't worth renewing the program. The cost of the television show was high as it was completely filmed in New Zealand in high-definition. Legend of the Seeker did receive a few different awards during the short run, including a primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Music Composition. The sound designers also received an Aotearoa Film and Television Award. Currently, the Legend of the Seeker program aires in 60 different international markets. Although the television show doesn't air in the United States on television, it does appear online.
