Prime Video has ordered a third season of the fantasy series The Wheel of Time.
The streamer announced the news Thursday at San Diego Comic-Con. Season two of the series wrapped filming in May, but a premiere date is unknown.
Based on Robert Jordan’s series of best-selling novels, the Wheel of Time follows Moiraine (Rosamund Pike), a member of the powerful all-female society known as the Aes Sedai, as she arrives in the small town of Two Rivers in a world where magic exists and only specific women are permitted to use it. With five young men and women, one of whom is said to be the Dragon Reborn, who will either save or destroy humanity, she sets off on a perilous, globe-spanning voyage from there.
“I’m so thrilled that we’ll be making a third season of The Wheel of Time,” said Rafe Judkins, executive producer and showrunner of the series, in a statement. “The Shadow Rising has always been my favorite 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 honor, and something I’ve been working toward since I first pitched the show years and years ago.”
“We are so excited to dive deeper into the world of The Wheel of Time with Rafe Judkins and his team, who have done such a marvelous job of honoring Robert Jordan’s vision and delivering an incredible viewing experience to Prime Video customers,” said Vernon Sanders, head of global television at Amazon Studios. “Season One resonated with the most loyal of Jordan devotees, as well as the uninitiated, who were experiencing this incredible world for the first time, proving this is a show that truly stands out in the genre space. We couldn’t be happier to give fans more reasons to be excited about the show and bring more The Wheel of Time to our customers worldwide.”
The first season of The Wheel of Time premiered on Nov. 19, 2021.
