Season 2 of The Wheel of Time has a lot to live up to. With 1.16 billion minutes streamed by viewers during its opening weekend, the fantasy show was one of the top TV blockbusters of 2021. Not only that, but its first season was the most watched TV show in the United States last year.
That’s not bad, especially when you consider that other Prime Video series, like as Invincible, did exceptionally well with viewers. It also bodes well for Amazon Studios’ planned Lord of the Rings TV series. We stated that The Wheel of Time had to succeed for The Rings of Power to have a chance, and based on audience data, the TV adaptation of Robert Jordan’s novel series did.

The Wheel of Time, however, must lift the ante in its upcoming instalment as a result of its popularity. The Wheel of Time season 2 will have plenty of material to draw on, but it will have to do it in a way that expands on the foundations built by its predecessor. So there’s no pressure.
So, what do we know regarding the revival of the show? There have been numerous new casting rumours floating around the internet. Meanwhile, it appears like development on The Wheel of Time‘s second season is still ongoing, so we may not see it until 2023 at the earliest.
More details on Prime Video’s adaptation, including a probable premiere date, returning cast members, potential narrative points, and more, can be seen below. Season 1 of The Wheel of Time and the novels include spoilers.
Release Date for Season 2 of The Wheel of Time
Season 1 of The Wheel of Time ended in December 2021 with a bang, leaving many fans eagerly anticipating the following episode. The release date for Season 2 of The Wheel of Time on Amazon has yet to be announced.
The series was supposed to start filming in July 2021 and end in February 2022, but there are indications that it has been postponed until March.
Sanaa Hamri, the Wheel of Time’s director and executive producer, has said that main photography will wrap in March 2022. The series is expected to premiere in late 2022 or early 2023, despite the early completion of production.
Season 2 Cast of The Wheel of Time
The second season of The Wheel of Time will introduce new and expanded characters, as well as a major cast change that fans weren’t expecting following the first. We’ve put together a list of the major casting changes that the studio has confirmed publicly.
On September 20, 2021, Dónal Finn was cast in the role of Mat Cauthon, replacing Barney Harris, who played the character in the first season. There is no explanation for the recasting.
On October 8, 2021, during the series panel at New York Comic-Con, Ceara Coveney, Natasha O’Keeffe, and Meera Syal were announced as series regulars for the second season. On December 6, 2021, Guy Roberts, Arnas Fedaravicius, and Gregg Chillingirian were cast in recurring roles. Ceara Coveney plays Elayne Trakand. She is an Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah, a powerful channeler and born royal.
Meera Syal and Natasha O’Keefe will join her as unnamed roles. Other characters will have recurring roles, such as Guy Roberts’ Uno Nomesta. Arnas Fedaravicius portrays Masema Dagar, a soldier turned prophet. Furthermore, Hammed Animashaun will reprise his role as Loial, as he was recently seen filming with the rest of the cast in Prague.
Plot of The Wheel of Time season 2?
The first season revealed that, rather than following the tale of the books in chronological order, the Wheel of Time television series borrows elements from several books to help the storyline flow. This makes predicting where the show will go next all the more difficult.
During interviews, some of the show’s actors have hinted to the future season. During a JordanCon 2022 panel, Kate Fleetwood hinted the development of Liandrin Guirale’s darker side. “I’ve really enjoyed Liandrin’s playfulness,” Fleetwood said, “but there’s a deeper and darker side to Liandrin, as well as her own personal backstory.” “I’ve really been able to immerse myself in the second season, which has been a real gift… there’s definitely some surprises in store in Season 2,” she added.
Al’Lan Mandragoran actor Daniel Henney has hinted that the second season will be scarier than the first. “It’s difficult for me not to give too much away,” he continued, “but I’ll say this: two swords, many Fades, blood….lots of blood.” We saw glimpses of a new desert site in a behind-the-scenes film shared on social media. Many believe this is the Aiel Waste, which has been hinted at but never shown on screen in the show. Only the Aiel people can survive long periods of time in the Aiel Waste, which is a harsh and unforgiving wilderness. Season 2 is likely to use this as a major setpiece.

Otherwise, we’re optimistic that season two will continue to examine the Dragon Born’s genealogy, and we’ll be watching Rand grow into his new role. Meanwhile, the rest of the Two Rivers group is still trying to find out where they fit into the plot. We’ll very certainly discover a lot more about Perrin’s wolfbrother talents as a result of this.
Mat will return to the plot (with his new actor), and we expect him to continue his antics with old treasures, revealing more about the past in the process. In the season one conclusion, we also get a glimpse of the Seanchan. In the coming season, the formidable, maritime empire will undoubtedly be a menace.
Lan, Moiraine, and Nynaeve’s growing love triangle will most certainly get a lot of screen time as well. There’s a lot to discover, and we’re excited to see where it leads.
Trailer for Season 2 of The Wheel of Time
Though no trailer has been released as of this writing, Amazon Studios CEO Vernon Sanders announced that The Wheel of Time showrunner Rafe Judkins and his team have submitted a rough edit for the first episode.
Because filming for Season 2 is nearing complete, we may see a trailer shortly. While we wait for the Season 2 trailer, enjoy the Season 1 trailer.
