Amazon Prime’s The Wheel of Time, based on the popular fantasy novels by the late Robert Jordan, took viewers by storm with its debut late last year, filling the void many were left with after a lull in the genre. At San Diego Comic-Con, a behind-the-scenes feature showcased the cast and crew hard at work to bring Season 2 to life, while creators also announced that ahead of the premiere, the series will also be returning for Season 3.
In true fantasy fashion, the Season 1 finale ended with cliffhangers likely unknown to book readers, leaving us anticipating what’s to come. And those of us here at Marvelous Geeks have one specific ship in mind that we’re eager to reunite with. We can’t help it. This is who we are—writers by day, “shippers” all the time. It’s lanaeve (Nynaeve a’Meara and Lan Mandragoran), guys, obviously.
“We are so excited to dive deeper into the world of The Wheel of Time with Rafe Judkins and his team, who have done such a marvelous job of honoring Robert Jordan’s vision and delivering an incredible viewing experience to Prime Video customers,” Vernon Sanders (head of Amazon Studios’ Global Television) noted. “Season One resonated with the most loyal of Jordan devotees, as well as the uninitiated, who were experiencing this incredible world for the first time, proving this is a show that truly stands out in the genre space. We couldn’t be happier to give fans more reasons to be excited about the show and bring more of The Wheel of Time to our customers worldwide.”
With the success of the first season and the care everyone behind the seasons has put into The Wheel of Time, we can hope that the series will only get better from here on out. Thus far, as a network, Amazon Prime hasn’t disappointed us with on-screen adaptations of our favorite books, bringing something genuinely exhilarating to our screens with shows like The Expanse that got better after the initial cancellation from SyFy network.
Watch the behind-the-scenes look at The Wheel of Time Season 2 below and let us know what you’re most excited about.
