The Legend of the Seeker is a television series based on The Sword of Truth novels by Terry Goodkind. Sam Raimi is its executive producer.
The series follows the journey of a young woods guide named Richard Cypher, a mysterious confessor named Kahlan Amnell, and a wizard named Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander to stop Darken Rahl from unleashing an ancient and terrifying power.
While it is technically based on The Sword of Truth novels, it is very loosely based upon them. Many fans have complained that it branches so far away from the novels that it ruins the entire story. However, others argue that despite its departure from the story told in the novel, it is still a great show as long as the viewer doesn't expect it to be the same as the books, and that its differences are what make it exciting.
