‘The Wheel of Time’ Preview
Amazon writes about “The Wheel of Time”:
The Wheel of Time is one of the most popular and enduring fantasy series of all time, with more than 90 million books sold. Set in a sprawling, epic world where magic exists and only certain women are allowed to access it, the story follows Moiraine (Rosamund Pike), 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.
Based on Robert Jordan’s best-selling fantasy novels, The Wheel of Time was adapted for television by executive producer/showrunner Rafe Judkins.
The series stars Rosamund Pike, Daniel Henney, Josha Stradowski, Madeleine Madden, Marcus Rutherford, Zoe Robins, and Barney Harris.
Amazon will release the first three episodes on November 19, followed by one episode every Friday thereafter.
Season 2 of the new series has already been greenlit, even before season 1 premiered, Amazon announced in May.
Judkins said about the news: “This property is one I’ve loved since I was a teenager, and seeing it brought to life with the resources to make it truly worthy of what’s on the page is something I can’t wait for the other fans of the books to see. And Season 2 just keeps expanding the world we built in Season 1.”
Jeff Frost, President of Sony Pictures Television, said about the news: “Receiving a second season pickup right after wrapping Season 1, exemplifies their dedication to and belief in this series. We can’t wait for audiences globally to experience the magic that Rafe, our other talented producers, Rosamund and the rest of the cast and crew have created.”
The Wheel of Time has sold more than 90 million books and is set in a world where magic still exists and only certain women can wield it. Rosamund Pike plays the character of Moiraine.
The season finale for season 1 will air on December 24.
