The fantasy series ‘The Wheel of Time’ is getting a third season as announced by the streaming platform at the San Diego Comic-Con.
Prime Video has officially ordered a third season for the fantasy series ‘The Wheel of Time’ that is based on Robert Jordan’s series of best-selling novels of the same name.
Set in a sprawling, epic world where magic exists and only certain women are allowed to access it, the story follows Moiraine (Rosamund Pike, I Care A Lot, Gone Girl), a member of the incredibly powerful all-female organization called the Aes Sedai, as she arrives in the small town of Two Rivers. There, she embarks on a dangerous, world-spanning journey with five young men and women, one of whom is prophesied to be the Dragon Reborn, who will either save or destroy humanity.
Speaking about the renewal, series showrunner Rafe Judkins stated: “The Shadow Rising has always been my favourite book in the series, so being able to bring it to television and introduce new audiences to the stories that made me fall in love with these books in the first place is such an honour and something I’ve been working toward since I first pitched the show years and years ago.”
The series cast includes Daniel Henney, Zoë Robins, Madeleine Madden, Josha Stradowski and Marcus Rutherford.
Larry Mondragon and Rick Selvage of Red Eagle Entertainment, Ted Field and Mike Weber of Radar Pictures, Darren Lemke, and Marigo Kehoe serve as executive producers. Rosamund Pike will serve as producer and Harriet McDougal and Brandon Sanderson as consulting producers.
The Wheel of Time is co-produced by Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television.
