Amazon Announces Premiere Date for Season 2 of 'The Wheel of Time'

Amazon has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming second season of its original drama series The Wheel of Time.

The 8-episode second season will debut on Friday, September 1.

Based on the fantasy series by Robert Jordan, humble farm boy Rand al'Thor 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 the new season, 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.

The drama stars Rosamund Pike, Daniel Henney, Josha Stradowski, Zoë Robins, Madeleine Madden, Marcus Rutherford, Dónal Finn and Ceara Coveney.

Rafe Judkins developed the drama. He executive produces with Larry Mondragon, Rick Selvage, Ted Field, Mike Weber, Darren Lemke, Marigo Kehoe, Justine Juel Gillmer, Sanaa Hamri and Amanda Kate Shuman. Pike serves as a co-executive producer. Amazon Studios, Sony Pictures Television, iwot productions and Radar Pictures produce.
