Prime Video is giving fans a glimpse into the highly anticipated second season of the Amazon Original series – The Wheel of Time. A new set of character posters have been released today that give new details and an up-close look at many of the beloved returning characters, as well as some intriguing newcomers.
The series is based on Robert Jordan’s best-selling novels, which make up one of the most popular and enduring fantasy book series of all time, with over 90 million copies sold.
Season Two of The Wheel of Time will premiere exclusively on Prime Video, with the first three new episodes debuting on September 1.
The posters are the latest iteration of #WOTWednesdays, which also included last week’s exciting look into the creation of the series’ menacing Trollocs, and the reveal of the Season Two cold open the week before, and give fans another taste of what to expect this season, teasing potential easter eggs in the character pairings and costumes, and spotlighting the power and magic so central to this season’s battles between light and shadow.
Based on the best-selling Robert Jordan fantasy series The Wheel of Time, a humble farm boy, Rand al’Thor (Josha Stradowski, Gran Turismo), learns 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 sorceresses 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.
