The anticipated series The Wheel of Time, based on Robert Jordan’s novel series of the same name, continues to delight fans with the news. In the summer of 2021, it was revealed that before the release of the first season, scheduled for November 2021, Amazon had extended the project for a second season. This was done because of the studio’s faith in the series and because they wanted to avoid a break in the narrative.
To avoid a major hiatus, Amazon Studios has set the release date of season 2 of The Wheel of Time series for the fall of 2022. Amazon representatives told that the shooting of new episodes will begin immediately after the completion of the first season. The authors have already prepared the script, so difficulties may arise from the coronavirus. It is known that in the new season, viewers are waiting for new locations.
What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?

In the world of The Wheel of Time book, there is a powerful organization of female wizards. They act for the good of the world, but their true goals are unknown and their methods are sometimes not trustworthy. When a representative of the organization challenges herself to escort three young men to the city of Tor Valon, since it is the only place where they are safe, many people do not like it. Therefore, a whole squad of people often do not trust each other to gather for the expedition. After a short break, the release date of season 2 of The Wheel of Time will be in the autumn of 2022.
News about filming the new episodes coincided with the information about the start of casting for the role of a young princess, from which people familiar with the book, made a conclusion that the authors conceived a long-playing project because this character does not appear in the first parts of the novel. The novel promises to be the new Lord of the Ring, but many are confused by the fact that only Rosamund Pike is among the famous actors in the cast, perhaps as the narrative number of star names will increase. The show’s release date is expected in 2021, with a second season starting a year later.
