Several days ago, Prime Video revealed that The Wheel of Time Season 2 Time had been renewed for a third season at San Diego Comic-Con and the streamer couldn’t let New York Comic-Con pass without bringing some of the cast to the Empire Stage to discuss The Wheel of Time and tease what fans can expect from the return to the epic fantasy universe.
The panel started off with a very fun video featuring Rosamund Pike talking to herself as Moiraine and teasing what fans might come to expect from Moiraine’s journey and how she will be more stubborn and more closed off than before.
Showrunner and managerial producer Rafe Judkins was included by Madeleine Madden, Daniel Henney, and Marcus Rutherford to discuss the new season and they dove straight into questions about the new threats.
Judkins also betrayed that Season 2 will see the introduction of the Seanchan, who will essentially “side-swipe” the season, and he also teased that Perrin and Egwene will have a run-in with them.
The first exclusive clip they shared was of Mat Cauthon’s imprisonment by the Aes Sedai following his time wielding the ruby-hilted dagger of Shadar Logoth.
The second clip featured Elayne (Coveney) and Egwene’s (Madden) first real meeting in the White Tower, which did not ineluctably go as planned. Egewene was trying to be polite and nice, but there was alright, an edge of bothering when Elayne pointed out that Egwene used to be her subject in the Two Rivers, seeing as she is the Daughter-Heir of Andor.
They also launched the first teaser trailer for The Wheel of season 2 which features much more escalated stakes in comparison to the first season — which is saying something, contemplate how much heartbreak, angst, drama, and epic battles arose.
Some of the most notable episodes in the reel featured lots of tears, a shirtless a’Lan training, Rand mounted on what materializes, to be some sort of torture rack, and a little evidence to suggest that Mat will escape from his captivity.
