It's been almost two years since the debut season of The Wheel of Time concluded, and fans of the fantasy adaptation were beginning to grow a little impatient with the lack of season 2 updates.
Now, Prime Video (via EW) has announced that Rand al'Thor (Josha Stradowski), Moiraine Damodred (Rosamund Pike) and the others will return to our screens for more adventure on September 1.
Whereas the first season adapted (pretty faithfully) the first book in Robert Jordan's sprawling saga, "The Eye of the World," the next batch of episodes will focus on "The Great Hunt," as confirmed in the brief teaser promo below.
"This season is a lot of screaming, crying, fighting, and two people talking in a room," showrunner Rafe Judkins teased at New York Comic Con last year. "We did build that groundwork. You know who these people are, and now you get to see them go on these journeys. The journeys Robert Jordan created are epic. It's a gift for people who know the books to watch the show, because they see contained in each of these characters the path that's in front of them. In season 2, we're on that path. By the end of the season, eight episodes later, it's just massive. I'm excited for people to see it."
The promo stills spotlight most of our returning heroes, but there is one new face among them. After parting ways with the series for reasons that have yet to be fully disclosed, Barney Harris' character, Mat Cauthon, will now be played by Dónal Finn.
