Legend of the Seeker Season 1 TV Series Details
Legend of the Seeker is an American television series created by Sam Raimi, based on the fantasy novel series The Sword of Truth by Terry Goodkind. Distributed in U.S. by Disney-ABC Domestic Television, ABC Studios produced the series for first-run syndication with Raimi, Robert Tapert, Joshua Donen, Ned Nalle, and Kenneth Biller serving as executive producers. The show premiered on November 1, 2008 and ran for two seasons before its cancellation in 2010.
The series follows the journeys of a long-awaited “Seeker of Truth” named Richard Cypher (Craig Horner), a Confessor named Kahlan Amnell (Bridget Regan), a wizard named Zeddicus Zu’l Zorander (Bruce Spence), and a Mord-Sith named Cara (Tabrett Bethell) as they defend the people of their realm against tyranny and destruction. While the names and places are the same, the story in the television series is different from that in the books.
- Craig Horner as Richard Cypher – The Seeker of Truth. When Darken Rahl sent his soldiers to kill every first-born son in Brennidon, Zedd helped Richard by bringing him into Hartland and giving him to George and Mary Cypher. In season 1, episode 1, “Prophecy”, Kahlan arrives in Hartland to find Richard and Zedd. Zedd tells Richard who he really is – the Seeker destined to defeat Darken Rahl. Together, they stand to defeat Darken Rahl, but when they defeat Rahl, they caused a tear in the veil which separates the World of the Living from the Underworld and they have to find the Stone of Tears to seal the rift. It is later revealed that Richard’s half brother is Darken Rahl and that he is to inherit the throne, which he decides to reject.
- Bridget Regan as Kahlan Amnell – The Mother Confessor. (Only named Mother Confessor in the first season, episode ten, “Sacrifice.”) After Richard is named, she is sworn to protect him with her life and proves worthy to the team because, during battles, when she gets the chance, and when necessary, confesses people (uses her powers to put people under control) so that they can find out information and temporarily add someone to their team.
- Bruce Spence as Zeddicus Zu’l Zorander – The First Wizard and a Wizard of the First Order. After Richard is named as the Seeker of Truth, he swears to protect him with his life. He proves worthy to the team, especially on matters involving magic. When there is no one Kahlan can confess, he normally finds the right answer. He never rushes, always considering the consequences of his actions, and never fails to consider what has to be done. In episode 4 of season 1, he reveals to Kahlan that he is Richard’s grandfather.
- Tabrett Bethell as Cara Mason (season 2) – A Mord-Sith. She is the one who helped Richard kill Darken Rahl. In season 2, episode one, “Marked” when her Sisters of the Agiel betray her, Richard rescues her. After that incident, and realizing that Richard is the rightful Lord Rahl, both protect each other with their lives. Cara is always feisty and sharp-tongued and has the stomach to kill good people when none of the rest can. She approaches problems with the simplest, most direct and usually most violent solutions, often to the chagrin and amusement of the others.
- Craig Parker as Darken Rahl – Richard’s half-brother and the emperor of D’Hara. Darken Rahl once sent his assassins to kill every first-born child in Brennidon so that the Seeker may be one of the children killed and this can keep the “destiny” of the Seeker from being fulfilled, but Zedd escaped with Richard and raised him in Hartland. After that, Darken Rahl tries everything he can to kill Richard. In season 2, Darken Rahl forces Richard to resurrect him, and Rahl returns to the world of the living. After realizing that his defeat has also caused another threat which involves the prophecy saying that the Seeker will deliver the Stone of Tears to Keeper, he reluctantly join forces with Richard to destroy the Keeper for good, by sending the group of Mord-Sith in order to help Richard and the others reach to the Pillars Of Creation. In the original novel, Darken was Richard’s father, not brother.
- David de Lautour as Michael Cypher (season 1) – Richard’s stepbrother and First Councilor of Hartland. Michael always looked down on Richard and never told him his origin because their father, George Cypher, made him promise not to tell Richard. In season 1, episode 14, “Hartland”, Michael is killed by a D’Haran while trying to help Richard and Kahlan.
- Brooke Williams as Jennsen Rahl – Richard’s sister and a Pristinely Ungifted. As a Pristinely Ungifted, Jennsen cannot be affected by magic, nor can she use magic. In season 2, episode 21, “Unbroken”, the Keeper sends the Sisters of the Dark to drink her blood in order to become immune to magic themselves, killing Jennsen in the process; however, this takes place in an alternate timeline.
- Tania Nolan and Gina Holden as Dennee Amnell – Kahlan’s younger sister and a Confessor. From childhood, Dennee has always looked up to Kahlan. In season 1, episode 10, “Sacrifice”, Dennee and the remaining confessors (except Kahlan) flee to Valeria with Dennee’s son (a male Confessor), but the Mord-Sith eventually kill them all. In season 2, episode 7, “Resurrection”, Denna and a wizard resurrect her, but she escapes them and lives with the child of the woman whose body her spirit had been put in.
- Jon Brazier as Thaddicus Zorander – Zedd’s brother. From childhood, Thaddicus has always held resentment towards Zedd, since the latter had magic like their father, while he did not, and has gotten frequently into trouble. He has taken every opportunity to kill Panis Rahl, the man who murdered their father.
- Jay Laga’aia as Dell “Chase” Brandstone (season 1) – The boundary warden of Hartland. Chase has always done everything he can to help Richard.
- Danielle Cormack as Shota – The witch woman of Agaden Reach. In season 1, Shota tries to help the team with her knowledge of prophecy and witch woman skills. In season 2, Shota tries to kill Richard and name a new Seeker because of the prophecy saying that the Seeker will deliver the Stone of Tears to the Keeper.
- Kevin J. Wilson as General Egremont – Lord Rahl’s most trusted adviser. General Egremont has never double-crossed Rahl and will even lay down his life for him.
- Jessica Marais as Denna – A Mord-Sith. When she fails to break Richard, Darken Rahl gives her a second chance. When she fails again, Richard allows her to flee to escape Rahl’s wrath. In season 2, episode 7, “Resurrection”, she kills Richard and puts a trained D’Haran general’s spirit in his body. Kahlan kills the general and a wizard and Cara resurrects Richard. In season 2, episode 8, “Light”, Cara shoots her through the chest with an arrow and she falls off a cliff and dies.
- Elizabeth Hawthorne as Annalina Aldurren – The prelate of the Sisters of the Light. Ann will do anything to fulfill “the Creator’s will”. First, she traps Richard in the Palace of the Prophets, then she leaves him to die in the Valley of Perdition, and, finally, she sends a false Creator to execute him. Richard escapes every time, however.
- Jolene Blalock and Emily Foxler as Nicci – The former leader of the Sisters of the Dark. When Nicci fulfills a promise by the Keeper that he will protect her if she serves him, she becomes one of his most loyal and deadly servants. This changes when Richard convinces her that her strength is hers and hers alone and that she does not need to serve the Creator, Keeper, or himself. From then on, Nicci serves herself only and ceases serving the Keeper.
- Elizabeth Blackmore as Mariana – The current leader of the Sisters of the Dark. After Nicci leaves, Mariana takes over leadership. Marianna has never betrayed the Keeper and is very loyal to him. She appears as a recurring villain from episodes 39 to 44. In season 2, episode 22, “Tears”, Richard eventually kills her with the Sword of Truth.
Sam Raimi became interested in adapting The Sword of Truth novels after his business partner Joshua Donen encouraged him to read the books, and he in turn gave the books to Robert Tapert to read. Raimi considered adapting the first book into a movie or a five-part miniseries, but later settled on making a weekly television series after speaking to the books’ author Terry Goodkind. A weekly television program would allow them to include most of the stories and important aspects of the series. Goodkind had resisted selling the rights of his books on multiple occasions before he met Raimi because he was not confident that other producers would maintain the integrity of his stories and characters. Raimi, who had produced Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Xena: Warrior Princess with Tapert and Ned Nalle, saw this as an opportunity to return to the first-run syndicated television business. However, the syndicated television business had diminished after the loss of crucial foreign markets around 2000. But with the former minor networks, UPN and WB, being replaced by a still struggling The CW that may disappear, the timing seemed right.
ABC Studios agreed to fund the project and greenlit the production for 22 episodes in March 2008, after it was cleared for broadcast to stations representing 84% of the United States, with Tribune Broadcasting being the primary launch group. The show, which is heavily action-oriented and requires visual effects, was given a “network-sized” production budget of US$1.5 million per episode.
Originally named Wizard’s First Rule (after the first book in The Sword of Truth series), the show was retitled to Legend of the Seeker at Goodkind’s suggestion since the producers wanted to differentiate the show from the books, it would have been too restrictive for them to only include plot lines from the first book, and because this would allow them the opportunity to cover the story within all the books in the series.
