It was announced today that production on the second season of The Wheel of Time has officially wrapped. The Amazon Prime original was renewed for this second season months before the first season had even been released. However, it ended up being a logical decision based on the generally positive response from audiences towards the fantasy series. As well, there is ample ground for the franchise to cover thanks to the 14-novel series written by Robert Jordan that the series is based upon.
The first season of the show followed the tale of Moiraine Damodred (portrayed by Rosamund Pike) on her quest to find the Dragon Reborn, who is prophesied to either save the world from the evil that currently consumes it or be the harbinger of its destruction. In addition to Rosamund Pike, the series stars Daniel Henney, Zoë Robins, and Madeline Madden among others. Dónal Finn will be replacing Barney Harris in the role of Mat Cauthon in season two. As well, it was previously announced that Killing Eve’s Ayoola Smart would be joining the cast for the second season. Rafe Judkins serves as the showrunner and executive producer.
While it is not officially announced when the second season will air, the first season concluding production in May 2021 could lead to the assumption of a return to a November release for Wheel of Time Season 2.
