According to the network, the show was MTV's highest rated new series this year, and had the biggest gains in DVR playback over 7 days in network history.

Poppy Drayton explains how Amberle will become the hero the Four Lands need.

Said Mina Lefevre, executive vice president at MTV, "This dream team delivered a beautiful, groundbreaking show with compelling stories and character journeys which brought in new viewers. I can't wait to see what season 2 brings."
