Loaded with an open mind and a lot of curiosity, explore any documentary, movie, series and miniseries that starts to make noise.

If success accompanies them, the streaming platform and the team want to spend a lot of time with Moiraine.

The wheel of time It has all the ingredients to be a series fixed on the lists of series fans for years to come. It was released on Amazon Prime Video on November 19 and became a hit almost instantly. The cast, the script and the great budget of fiction have added so that we see it as one of the great titles of this decade. It also helps the original material of the Robert Jordan saga and, if all goes well, Amazon will adapt the 14 books that compose it.

In a recent interview with IGN, Amazon Studios co-president of television, Vernon Sanders, has spoken about the future of fiction and it all seems to be good news.

Our ideal is to work with Rafe Judkin [‘showrunner’] and the team in the complete saga. Obviously that’s a long way off. So we’re focused on where we are right now [la temporada 2]

When Sanders comments that they want to work with “the complete saga” he means that They have 14 books ahead of them with which to develop their plots and different deliveries, in addition to a prequel that takes place 20 years before the events shown in the series and that could lead to a ‘spin-off’ – but this is our speculation. It is one of the largest fantasy franchises in the literary world. In fact, it was created by Robert Jordan and, after his death in 2007, Brandon Sanderson took over.

‘The Wheel of Time’, an adaptation “without red lines”: “Everything has been done in the service of the most exciting series possible”

In an interview with SensaCine, producer Mike Weber already said that his plans were to cover the entire saga. “Our goal is to adapt all the books and how many seasons that will end up being anyone’s guess yet. But we want to carry this series to its final outcome in the fourteenth book. That’s the goal“He counted. Until now, the decisions that the company has made are aimed at that same goal. The second season was confirmed long before the premiere of the first and it has also been confirmed that there will be a third, which will be shot just after the second.

As Sanders recounts, “right now” they are in the process of writing season 2 of The wheel of time. “Rafe Judkin and the team just shared the first few episodes of season two, and I wish I could give them to everyone right away. They’re just great., assures the executive.

We don’t know when season 2 of The wheel of time, but we hope it will be in 2022. In the meantime, enjoy the first episodes – if you haven’t already – on Amazon Prime Video.
