The first season of Amazon’s sumptuous adaptation of Robert Jordan’s iconic fantasy series, The Wheel of Time, came to an end on December 31st. Even though it divided fans of Jordan’s series, the show was a big hit, drawing large audiences and favorable reviews.
In either event, Amazon will be back for more. Even before the first season of The Wheel of Time aired, they were already working on the second. Hopefully, Season 2 will be released as soon as possible.
However, it will still take some time. Season 2 of The Wheel of Time will not be released in March of 2022, even if Amazon plans that far ahead. This is a labor-intensive production that will necessitate some more time.
Will The Second Season Of The Wheel Of Time Be Released In 2022?
That’s a better one to ask. Amazon Studios executive Vernon Sanders has already seen rough cuts of the first two episodes of the second season of The Wheel of Time. Around the time of the show’s finale, he added, “I could get those out to everyone right away. “They’re amazing,” I exclaimed.
After Amazon premieres its other huge fantasy series, the second season of Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will air. It’s safe to assume that The Wheel of Time season 2 won’t launch until at least November, given it begins airing on September 2.
Additionally, it could take a lot longer than that. While we’d love to see more of The Wheel of Time in 2022, we wouldn’t be surprised if it slid into 2023. Season 2 of The Wheel of Time will begin before the conclusion of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.

Something From The Previous Season
First and foremost, we won’t be seeing a second season of The Wheel of Time. Season 2 will launch after Amazon’s The Rings of Power, which means it may air as early as October of this year or as late as 2023, according to Judkins, who did not specify a specific date. However, he did promise that there will be some additional content to keep us going till then.
Judkins has confirmed that the second and third volumes in the series, The Great Hunt and The Dragon Reborn, would be incorporated into the second season. Even though he’s mostly secluded from the rest of the gang throughout his Book 3 voyage, Rand certainly appears to be preparing to embark on his own journey, and I can see them incorporating elements from both his Book 2 and Book 3 stories into this one.
According to Judkins, Perrin will follow Mat’s path in Book 2 and search for the Horn of Valere, which I assume means that Mat will follow his path in Book 3. Season 2 will also have more appearances by the warrior tribe known as Aiel, to which Rand’s mother belonged, despite the fact that he was raised in the Two Rivers by Tam al’Thor.
A key character from Aiel, Aviendha, has been cast. When it comes to Moiraine, season 2 will focus on her activities now that she is no longer tethered to the One Power, which is something that doesn’t happen in the books.

The Test Readers For The Wheel Of Time Had A Lot To Say About Mat
Returning to Mat, Judkins elaborated on the reasons for the revisions made to the character’s past. However, it is evident from the show Mat’s family is dysfunctional and toxic and this may explain why he has a casual approach towards life. Mat’s personality didn’t truly emerge until Book 3, according to a 250-page document Amazon provided to Judkins with poll data from several book-reading groups, all of whom agreed. I think this decision was a good one (and I’ve stated why), but I’m aware that it upset some people.
The scene in the season 1 finale where Nynaeve appears to die while defending Fal Dara from a Trolloc onslaught and Egwene brings her back using the One Power was also addressed by Judkins. Because of this scenario, Judkins seemed to believe that some viewers misread it. There are no specifics here, but he does stress that death cannot be reversed in the show or the literature, which will be made obvious in season 2. It’s possible that Nynaeve was just being sarcastic. I’m not sure, but it appeared to be dead.
Season 2’s first two episodes have already been rough-cut by Amazon execs, according to what we’ve learned thus far. It takes time to put up a show like The Wheel of Time, but perhaps we won’t have to wait too long to find out what happens when this season is finished.
