The captivating action-adventure series “Legend of the Seeker” will premiere its highly-anticipated second season the weekend of November 7th. The two-hour television event will begin with the first season’s thrilling finale followed by the riveting second season premiere episode. 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.

Joining the cast this season as a series regular is Tabrett Bethell (“Mei Li Johnson”), reprising her role as the fierce Mord’Sith Cara, who threatens Richard (Craig Horner, “Monarch Cove” and “Blue Water High”) and Kahlan’s (Bridget Regan, “Sex and the City” and “The Best and the Brightest”) close relationship. Additionally, actress Charisma Carpenter, best known for her starring role as Cordelia on the long-running hit series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Angel,” will guest star in the season premiere as a wicked Mord’Sith named Triana, who challenges Cara’s authority.

In the second season, Richard, Kahlan, and Zedd (Bruce Spence, “Mad Max 2” and “The Matrix Revolutions”) 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 (Craig Parker, “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring” and “The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers”) at the end of season one, their victory is short-lived as they inadvertently opened a rift into the underworld, thus unleashing even greater evils on the world.

Shot with the exotic and rugged New Zealand landscape as its backdrop, “Legend of the Seeker” is from the talented team behind the long-running, successful series “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” and “Xena: Warrior Princess,” and the studio that produces primetime network hits including “Lost,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Desperate Housewives,” “Ghost Whisperer” and “Army Wives.” The series is produced by ABC Studios and distributed by Disney-ABC Domestic Television. Ken Biller, Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, Ned Nalle and Josh Donen serve as executive producers. The series airs Saturdays and Sundays in national syndication.
