Wheel of Time fans, welcome to season 2! The Prime Video fantasy series officially returns September 1. But you can start getting ready now, thanks to the return of #WOTWednesdays. Each Wednesday leading up to the season 2 premiere, Prime Video will share news and special looks at the upcoming season. Today we’re kicking things off strong with the Wheel of Time season 2 trailer. Watch it below.
In season 1 of Wheel of Time, Rand al’Thor learned 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 women 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 Prime Video series is based on the bestselling fantasy novels by Robert Jordan. Season 2 draws from Book 2 in the series, The Great Hunt. It will also include some elements from book 3, The Dragon Reborn.
Season 2 of Wheel of Time stars Rosamund Pike as Moiraine Damodred, 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, and Ceara Coveney as Elayne Trakand.
You can catch up on season 1 of the series on Prime Video now. Season 2 premieres September 1. Until then, check back to THS for more updates and #WOTWednesdays content.
