It was announced in May that the fantasy adventure series had received an early Season 2 renewal, which is currently in production.
Based on the bestselling novel series by Robert Jordan, The Wheel of Time is set in a sprawling, epic world where magic exists, but only women can use it. The story follows Moiraine (Pike), a member of the shadowy and influential all-female organization called the ‘Aes Sedai’ as she embarks on a dangerous, world-spanning journey with five young men and women. Moiraine believes one of them might be the reincarnation of an incredibly powerful individual, whom prophecies say will either save humanity or destroy it. The series draws on numerous elements of European and Asian culture and philosophy, most notably the cyclical nature of time found in Buddhism and Hinduism.
The series also stars Daniel Henney (Wolverine), Álvaro Morte (Money Heist), Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda), Kae Alexander (Game of Thrones), Madeleine Madden (Tidelands), Zoë Robins (Power Rangers Ninja Steel), Michael McElhatton (Game of Thrones), Barney Harris (Clique), Marcus Rutherford (Obey), Josha Stradowski (Just Friends), Priyanka Bose (Lion), Taylor Napier (All About April) Emmanuel Imani (Black Earth Rising) and more.
The series is developed and executive produced by showrunner Rafe Judkins. It is produced by Sony Pictures TV, with Harriet McDougal, Jordan’s widow, serving as a consulting producer. Executive producers are Rick Selvage and Larry Mondragon of Red Eagle Entertainment, Ted Field and Mike Weber of Radar Pictures and Darren Lemke with Pike also set as producer.
