Amazon Studios Renews ‘Wheel Of Time’ For A Second Season
Amazon’s Upcoming Hit-series based on Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time gets renewed ahead of the launch of the first season.
As Mackans Film previously reported on the series back in October 2019 that Amazon Studios would be adapting Jordan’s epic series. The series has been in development for 20 years now and has been getting a second season greenlit at the studios. Rafe Judkins is the showrunner and the executive producer for the series, who has worked on Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Chuck-
“The belief Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television have shown in The Wheel of Time has been incredible to see throughout the entire process of making this show. Getting a second season order before the first season has even premiered is such a vote of confidence in the work we are doing and the property itself, and we couldn’t be happier to be able to continue to live and work in the world Robert Jordan created,” said Rafe Judkins. “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.”
Larry Mondragon and Rick Selvage of Red Eagle Entertainment, Ted Field and Mike Weber of Radar Pictures, Darren Lemke, Marigo Kehoe, and Uta Briesewitz will also be executive producers. Brieswitz will be directing the two first episodes.
Vernon Sanders, Co-Head of Television at Amazon Studios has also spoke out_
“The Wheel of Time is a beloved series of fantasy novels from Robert Jordan, renowned for the rich world and diverse characters he created. The approach Rafe and his team have taken with this project is a testament to Amazon Studios commitment to deliver something special for the devoted fans around the world. In partnership with the team at Sony Pictures Television, we wanted our Prime Video customers to be delighted that a second season is already in the works so that they would know that the journey would continue.”
