Fantasy is the thing these days, and The Wheel of Time feels like the fantasy series that keeps flying under the radar. Not that people don’t love it, but there are just so many big things going on it’s hard to fault people for just forgetting it’s coming. Even though it’s good! And people should absolutely check it out.
But Prime Video is here to remind us, with the key art for Season 2 of the show, which puts Moiraine front and center, which to be honest, is more than fine with us — Dragon Reborn or no Dragon Reborn. And though Season 1 saw our heroes win a battle, there are still many more battles to come in what will turn out to be a longer war than they all expected.
The Wheel of Time stars Josha Stradowski, Rosamund Pike, Daniel Henney, Zoë Robins, Madeleine Madden, Marcus Rutherford, Dónal Finn and Ceara Coveney.
Based on the best-selling Robert Jordan fantasy series The Wheel of Time, a humble farm boy, Rand al’Thor (Josha Stradowski, Gran Turismo), learns he is The Dragon Reborn—a dangerous figure from history destined to save the world … or break it. Desperate to protect him from the Dark One, an army of powerful sorceresses must reckon with his burgeoning power and encroaching madness. The Wheel of Time turns, and the Last Battle approaches. Though Rand thought he destroyed the Dark One, evil is not gone from the world. In Season Two, threats new and very old seek out the young friends from the Two Rivers, now scattered over the world. The woman who found and guided them is now powerless to help, and so they must find other sources of strength. In each other, or themselves. In the Light … or the Dark.
The Wheel of Time Season 2 premieres September 1st on Prime Video.
