We have great news for The Wheel of Time’s fans because Amazon has renewed the show for a second and even a third season. So, the cast is booked for two more seasons. Moreover, this renewal news came long ago, even before the second season premiered. It shows the hype of the show. Well, now that the filming has also begun, when will The Wheel of Time Season 2 be released? To find out, continue reading the article!
When will Wheel of Time’s second season be premiered?
Although Amazon confirmed the second and third season of the show, they did not issue an official release date for Wheel of Time Season 2. The filming began in July of 2021! Considering this, they must be done with the majority of the work. So, who knows, the sophomore season might premiere towards the end of 2022 or early 2023. As these are just our speculations, it is better not to entirely rely on them!
The second season’s first episode’s title is out! It will be titled ‘A Taste of Solitude.’ Not only this, but Amazon also confirmed that the upcoming season would have eight episodes in total, which is the same as the first season. We indeed do have high hopes for the second season! Many other mainstream Amazon projects are also lined up for release. So who knows how long the second season will take for its premiere.
Who will return in the The Wheel of Time Season 2?
The show is nothing without Rosamund Pike’s Moiraine Damodred, who also led the story in the first season. We are expecting her to become even more fierce. Other than her, expect the following to reprise their respective roles:
- Daniel Henney as Lan Mandragoran
- Josha Stradowski as Rand al’Thor
- Zoë Robins as Nynaeve al’Meara
- Madeleine Madden as Egwene al’Vere
- Marcus Rutherford as Perrin Aybara
- Dónal Finn as Mat Cauthon
- Fares Fares as The Dark One
- Johann Myers as Padan Fain
There will be certain new additions as well! And the fandom is quite lucky because Amazon has already revealed its details. Ceara Coveney, Meera Syal, Natasha O’Keeffe, and Ayoola Smart will join the cast of The Wheel of Time. You must remember these actors from their past projects. Barney Harris will not play Mat Cauthon this time because he has been replaced by Donal Finn. We don’t know the reasons behind this swap, but we are hoping that this does not mean any harm to the character.
Moreover, as the officials have confirmed that Loial is well and alive, Hammed Animashaun will also feature in the second season. However, that does not mean if he dodged death once, he’ll also survive in the upcoming seasons! Because according to the original novels, something very dark is about to happen.
Is there a trailer for the sequel to Wheel of Time?
Of course, as there is no set release date for The Wheel of Time Season 2 so far, we do not have a trailer for it either. But as the filming began way back, we expect to see some sort of footage soon. You can also follow the cast’s social media accounts, which might post some BTS content.
However, there is one reel in which the fans got to glimpse the characters!
What will happen in the second season of Wheel of Time?
When the showrunner was asked about the second season of The Wheel of Time, he seemed pretty confident about it. According to his words, it will be even more significant as they have introduced the story, and the characters are well established. Rafe also mentioned that The Shadow Rising is one of his favorite books in the series, and he is pretty excited to work on it.
It is uncertain what exactly will happen in the second season. However, we are hoping that they will give us the backstory of Lews Therin. Moreover, the cliffhanger of the finale will also determine the storyline. And there will be internal battles as well because the characters will try to distinguish between the dark and light in them. There will be a lot of bloodsheds! If you want to know more about what will happen, then we would suggest you give the original novels a read! As the show usually follows the original story closely.
Well, that was everything about The Wheel of Time’s second season. We will update this site once we get its release date. So, make sure that you bookmark this page!
