Season 2 of The Wheel of Time has arrived on Prime Video, keeping the wheel turning. The second season of the fantasy show was officially greenlit months before the first season even debuted.
The epic story is based on Robert Jordan’s colossal fantasy novel series of the same name, which spans 14 books. The important word there? Adapts. Events were shifted quite a bit in season one.
It didn’t include things like the names of characters or the names of places. The principal ensemble’s characterizations, most of whom will be back for more of the story, and the plot’s core message, however, shine through.
A preview of Season 2 was shown to us at New York Comic Con, and it looks like the intensity level has been raised to 11. The paths of the characters we met in Season 1 have been set, and now it’s on.
In the second season’s preview, we learn that they did not succeed in defeating the Dark One, but rather in freeing his right-hand lieutenant.
To name just a few of the problems the party faces, there are the Forsaken, the Seanchan (who appear to be scary), Moiraine’s loss of the One Power, and the Whitecloaks.
In this preview, we see a lot of pain and suffering, as well as some blood and tears.

If you’re waiting for the second season of The Wheel of Time to arrive on Prime Video, when is it coming out?
All anticipation now centers on the potential release date for Season 2. We didn’t anticipate it this month for another reason. When filming was completed was the deciding factor.
The manufacturing process was finished in May of 2022. Post-production on a show like this usually takes at least six to eight months. We’re looking at the beginning of 2023 at the earliest, but most likely it will be November 2022 before the season is complete.
To kick off the new year in style, this makes perfect sense. A typical season gap is about 14 months. Given that the first season wouldn’t arrive until November 2021, the next installment wouldn’t air until January 2023. It looks like plans are coming together for that.
The second season hasn’t been the subject of many reports. The only thing we know for sure is that there will be a third and that the early renewal will make the wait for it shorter. That season, however, is unlikely to arrive until 2024 at the earliest.
When season 2 of The Wheel of Time premieres, what will happen?
Rand and Moiraine sneaked out to find The Eye of the World at the conclusion of the first season, leading to a perilous showdown with the Dark One. While everything was going on, the rest of the gang was fighting alongside Fal Dara’s soldiers against the Dark Ones.
By using the totem Moiraine had given him, Rand was able to defeat the Dark One and further imprison him in his own realm.
Concerned about what he might do now that he has a connection to the One Power, he encouraged Moiraine (who has been shut off from the One Power by the Dark One) to inform his friends he had died despite his victory.
The repercussions of this pivotal choice, as well as Mat’s activities and the entrance of the Seanchan army from across the sea, will be explored in Season 2.
