Report: ‘Legend of the Seeker’ canceled

Legend of the Seeker

Entertainment Weekly’s Ausiello Files reports that Legend of the Seeker has been canceled.

The syndicated series, based on the “Sword of Truth” novels of fantasy author Terry Goodkind, was a rare gem of well-produced fantasy on television. News of its cancellation comes just as the second season finished airing in the U.S. The show was produced by Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert, who lit the fantasy flame with Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Xena: Warrior Princess in the mid-to-late 1990s.

Legend of the Seeker was the story of a young woodsman named Richard Cypher (Craig Horner) who is guided to his destiny as the Seeker of Truth by the mysterious Kahlan Amnell (the radiant Bridget Regan) and crusty wizard Zeddicus Z’ul Zorander (Bruce Spence).

Ausiello reports that many Tribune stations dropped the show in March, and that ABC Studios tried to shop it around but ultimately failed to keep the flame alive. It was distributed in the U.S. by Disney-ABC Domestic Television. The show was ABC’s first foray into broadcast syndication.
