So, in short, there will be a second season of The Wheel of Time. In fact, people say that filming is well underway.
Just before the first finale aired, TVLine talked to Vernon Sanders, the head of global TV for Amazon Studios, about why the show was picked up for a second season so soon:
“We like the show, and as the episodes came out and we saw how well they were made and as we talked to Rafe Judkins, the show’s creator, about where the next seasons would go, we knew we had something that could last a very long time for us.
“These are huge investments, so of course, we took a lot of time to make sure we were making the right choice, but it keeps paying off for us. All the credit goes to Rafe and his amazing team, as well as the cast, which was led by Rosamund Pike as Moiraine.
The Wheel of Time Season 2 Plot Line
Vernon Sanders gave a very encouraging answer to TVLine when they asked about season two and if it would “go even bigger” than the first season. This is great news for fans who can’t wait to see what comes next.
He said: “Rafe and Rosamund have both been great leaders. They are thoughtful, kind, and really want to do things the right way. So, before we started season two, we definitely talked about, “What can we do even better now that we’ve shown this huge world and introduced these characters?” So I’m sure that season 2 of Wheel of Time will be bigger, bolder, and cover more ground.”
The Wheel of Time Season 2 Cast & Characters
Rosamund Pike will definitely play Moiraine Damodred in season two of The Wheel of Time. She is the lead actor, so she will be back, and she will give it her all.
In an interview with Access, Pike, who plays Moiraine, said:
“We are putting everything we have into something that is big and has a lot going on. That you care about the characters, because in the end, people will be able to see themselves in any of our characters, and I think they’ll be fan favorites.”
She told Entertainment Weekly what it is about Moiraine that makes her such an interesting character.
Pike says, “At first, we only see a small part of the layers Moiraine will show as the season pass.”
“She doesn’t show all of her cards; she shows very few. In episode two, she tells Madeleine Madden’s character Egwene, “We always tell the truth, but it may not always be the truth you think you hear.” This is a very important piece of advice when dealing with Aes Sedai, who can still lie about the truth.”
She says, “Moiraine has a lot of willpower. By the time we meet her in this series (series one), she’s been on a mission for 20 years. She’s only had one goal, and she’s put her friends and her own wants on the back burner to get there. In that way, she’s very good, but it’s almost scary.”
The Wheel of Time Season 2 Release Date
Amazon hasn’t said when season two of The Wheel of Time will come out yet.
When filming began in July 2021, fans thought the movie would come out in the spring or summer of 2022. But that hasn’t turned out to be true.
Still, there is some good news. Please announce… The second season of Wheel of Time has been shot. Considering how long it took to make the movie, a drumroll seemed very appropriate. The Wheel of Time’s official Twitter page said that filming was done in May of this year.
To celebrate the end of filming, the show released a behind-the-scenes teaser video that showed a short clip of all the hard work that went into making the second season.
The picture showed pictures of the cast and crew from the table read to when they were actually filming. It also showed the sculptors hard at work and some stunt work. It’s short but full of action, showing glimpses of new characters, places, and clothes.
Since then, no one has said a word about when the second season will come out. Much to our disappointment.
We don’t know a lot about how the story of The Wheel of Time will continue on screen, but we do have a few clues.
The season will have eight episodes, just like the first season did. The first episode of season two will be called “A Taste of Solitude,” which was also announced on their official Twitter page.
A picture of the script was posted with the words “With this many Ta’veren in one place, one season would never be enough.” We just want more! Give us more details.
Vernon Sanders gave a new update on season two on December 22, 2022, via TVLine: “Rafe Judkins and his team just sent us the first cuts of the first episodes of season two, and I can’t wait for the audience to see what we have in store.”
The Wheel of Time Season 2 Trailer
Since filming for season two started before the first season was done airing on Amazon Prime Video, new episodes should be coming soon.
The exclusive behind-the-scenes teaser video gave us a taste of what’s to come, so surely they can’t keep fans waiting much longer. Still, keep checking in. We promise that as soon as a teaser gets posted online, you can bet your fantasy-loving behind that Digital Spy will have it.
