Fans of the Amazon series, The Wheel of Time, learned some additional good news ahead of the series’ Season 2 premiere. At the show’s panel presentation at San Diego Comic-Con, it was announced that the series has been renewed for a third season.
Rafe Judkins, the series executive producer and showrunner, shared the news during the panel:
I’m so thrilled that we’ll be making a third season of ‘The Wheel of Time’…The Shadow Rising has always been my favorite book in the series, so being able to bring it to television and introduce new audiences to the stories that made me fall in love with these books in the first place is such an honor, and something I’ve been working toward since I first pitched the show years and years ago.Rafe Judkins
The fantasy series first debuted in late 2021. While the second season does not yet have a premiere date, it wrapped production back in May. 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.
The first season of Wheel of Time is available to stream on Prime Video now.
