The Wheel of Time Season 2 Release Date: Where Can I Watch It?

There is a pause while we wait for things to get moving again. There’s little doubt that we’re in the midst of Prime Video’s season of high fantasy, what with filming for season 2 of The Wheel of Time has ended and the service going all out to promote Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.

And showrunner Rafe Judkin has revealed some information about when to expect season 2 (basically when not to expect it) and how elements from books 2 and 3 will be included in The Wheel of Time season 2!

Additionally, a behind-the-scenes teaser film was released to celebrate the end of production on the fantasy series. It teases some exciting new settings and dramatic confrontations. Not only that, but word has leaked out regarding how the second season will diverge from the first.

Moiraine (Rosamund Pike), a member of the Aes Sedai, a powerful group of women who can wield magic, is the protagonist of the adaption. She travels to a remote community in search of a mysterious figure who may save or destroy humanity.

Moiraine takes five young villagers on a perilous voyage to unknown countries as the Last Battle with the Dark One draws near, all to identify which of them is the prophesied Dragon.

The Wheel of Time Season 2 Release Date

According to tomsguide, Amazon has not announced when Season 2 of The Wheel of Time will be available, but we can speculate. After the success of Amazon’s previous fantasy series, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, fans were anticipating the return of The Wheel of Time for a second season in late 2022. That would have been an unbeatable one-two punch.

The release date was pushed back to late 2022 as the series failed to premiere. Thankfully, we can officially confirm that season 2 of The Wheel of Time will air in 2023. Judkin stated that there is still post-production work to be done, but that the film should be released this year, despite reports of an early 2023 release by Dragonmount(opens in new tab). This leads us to believe that a release in the spring or summer of 2023 is most plausible.

Also, he warned that Season 2 will have material from Book 3 due to the similarities between that book and Book 2 in terms of Rand and Ishmael and the producers’ desire to avoid repetition.

According to the show’s official social media(opens in new tab), filming for Season 2 of Wheel of Time was completed in May 2022, lending validity to our original projection. It would make sense to stick to the same release timetable as Season 1, which ended in May 2021 and premiered the following November.

Season 2 of The Wheel of Time will begin dramatically increasing the cast size to stay faithful to the books. With one notable exception, the core cast will all be back. The last two episodes of Season 1 were a bit rocky because Barney Harris, who played the scoundrel Mat Cauthon, abruptly quit the show.

While showrunner Rafe Judkins has been tight-lipped regarding the upcoming second season of The Wheel of Time, he has stated that the episodes “are longer than the previous season.”

What Will Happen in the Wheel of Time Season 2 Plot?

The first episode of The Wheels of Time is called “A Taste of Solitude,” according to a post from the show’s official Twitter account. This is the name of a section in the sixth book.

As Empire Spoiler Special Film Podcast host Rafe Judkins revealed, though, Season 2 will combine elements from both Book 2: “The Great Hunt” and Book 3: “The Dragon Reborn.”

These will be adapted from the novels in a way that works better for television. There will be eight episodes just like the first season. The appearances of Moiraine and Lan have also been expanded in comparison to the books because the two characters only share a single chapter in the sequel. It would be unfair to Rosamund Pike and Daniel Henney’s talents and charm.

In an interview with Nerdist, Judkins, Brandon Sanderson (co-author of the last three novels) and Robert Jordan’s widow Harriet discussed how they altered the original novel’s finale. As an attempt to enhance the narrative and make something that Jordan would enjoy.

To do so, we had to make some adjustments to the previous, highly muddled ending, which included several characters joining Rand at the Eye of the World for their showdown with The Dark One.

The story was altered so that the other actors would have more to do, including fighting with him in the climactic showdown, and for the fight to occur simultaneously. This raises the question of whether and how the five possible dragons will reunite in the future season.

Where Can I Watch the Wheel of Time Season 2?

The second season of The Wheel of Time is also available exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.


Some of the questions from the first season’s fans have been answered by Judkins. In this world’s mythology, death is supposedly the only thing that can never be cured. This prompted questions about how Egwene might revive Nyneave, who had previously been presumed to be permanently gone. Judkins reassured his audience that all will be explained.
