The Wheel of Time Season 2: Release date and more updates

The fact that Amazon Prime Video renewed The Wheel of Time ahead of its season one’s premiere is evidence of the faith the streamer has in Rafe Judkins. The fantasy series is a television adaptation of Robert Jordan’s book series. Debuted on the streaming service in November 2021, the series has already become a smash hit the audiences. Thus, it is obvious why Amazon gave it an early renewal. 

Since season two’s announcement, fans have been waiting with bated breath for more of The Wheel of Time’s adventures, magic, and battles. For a long time, creators were tight-lipped to disclose any specifics about season two of the series. However, their latest Twitter post on the series’ official page reveals that the second installment’s filming has wrapped up, giving us hopes that the epic show will return sooner than later. With that in mind, here’s everything we know about The Wheel of Time season two from its release date, casting information, trailer, and more:

When will The Wheel of Time Season 2 air?

Creators have not issued any definite release date for season two. But given the filming of the series has finished, the wait should not last too long. Season two hit the production in late summer of 2022 and by late November, it was halfway through it. In May 2022, the filming concluded with a 30-second video giving fans a glimpse of the behind-the-scenes process, and other production aspects.

As of now, fans should wait for a little while until the network decides its airing schedule. 

Season two will include an eight-episode count like its predecessor and fans cannot wait to see what is in store for them. 

The Wheel of Time Season 2’s plotline

The series has plenty of content to draw from with Jordan’s 14-book collection. And we know that season two will be based on the second and three books of the series.  Although a Twitter post hints that season two’s second chapter is titled ‘A taste of Solitude’ that is covered in the sixth book, the creators have stated that they will loosely follow 2 through three books to weave the literary work into a wholesome eight-episode season tv adaption. 

Additionally, the first season left several loose threads dangling with Moraine no longer having the potential to channel One Power and Rand and Dark one’s first fight. The last episode takes audiences to 3000 years ago. As of now, we are not sure whether season two will see more of this world. And how would the next episodes include the narrative from that world to the present day’s happenings? We shall know all these details soon. So, stay tuned. 

The Wheel of Time Season 2 Casting details

It is confirmed that the series protagonist, Rosamund Pike will reprise her role as Moraine Damodred for a second outing. The actor is keenly looking forward to exploring more of her character. Season two will also bring into the folds a slew of the new cast including Ceara Coveney (The Amazing World of Emma), Meera Syal (Broadchruch), and Natasha O’Keefe (Peaky Blinders). Furthermore, Arnas Fedaravicius, Guy Roberts, and Gregg Chilingirian will play supporting roles in the second part. nKIlling Eve’s Ayoola Smart is likely to portray Aviendha, a female channeler in the book series, however, her character arc remains in dark as of now. 

And there is a character who is not likely to return to the series- Mat (played by Barney Harris). Harris is being replaced by Donal Finn (The Witcher) and finally, fans will know what happened to Mat after he did not enter the Gate to the Third Eye of the world with the other Two Rivers villagers, Moraine and lane. 

Rafe has also said in an interview that audiences must be ready to see those characters dying in the future season who are otherwise alive in the books as the series cannot keep a myriad cast throughout all seasons. Rafe has plans to keep the show going for at least eight seasons and we cannot be happier.

The Wheel of Time Season 2 trailer: When’s the release date?

With the series meeting its production schedule just recently, expecting a teaser trailer is a bit early. We should expect footage before the weeks leading up to the release. 

Where to watch Wheel of Time?

Amazon’s streaming platform, Prime Video acquires exclusive rights to the series. So, catch up with its season one on it. The streamer is accessible after purchasing its subscription plan which is relatively economical to other platforms like Netflix. Its future episodes will also be available on the streaming service. So, make sure to have subscribed to it well in advance.
