The Wheel of Time season 2 premieres next month. And if you were considering a rewatch ahead of the new season, it looks like a good idea. Prime Video revealed today the season 1 finale now features a sneak peek at season 2.
The surprise bonus content comes directly from the season 2 premiere. It adapts the fan favorite “Darkfriend Social” prologue from Robert Jordan’s book The Great Hunt. The new addition directly calls back to Jordan’s original fantasy series; the end of each novel in his Wheel of Time series would include the first chapter of the next book.
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.
Season 2 of The Wheel of Time draws from book 2 in Jordan’s 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.
The Wheel of Time season 2 premieres on Prime Video September 1. Until then, check back to THS for more #WoTWednesdays content.
