The Prime Video hit fantasy series “The Wheel of Time,” which recently completed its critically acclaimed second season, was the topic among fans this weekend thanks to two special events that revealed both insights into season two and the highly anticipated third season!


On Saturday, October 14th, the team for “The Wheel of Time” took to the Empire Stage at New York Comic-Con (NYCC) as part of a special two-hour panel titled Prime Video Presents: The Power of Prime, which featured three additional series, InvincibleHazbin Hotel, and Upload, and lots of exclusive content across these titles, including first looks, announcements, and screenings. 


During the panel for “The Wheel of Time,” executive producer Marigo Kehoe, VFX supervisor Andy Scrase, and VFX producer Brian Shows spoke with moderator Damian Holbrook of TV Guide Magazine about the intricacies of the series’ impressive visual effects in Season Two, and they debuted a VFX highlight reel exclusively for the NYCC audience. 


Series showrunner Rafe Judkins came to the stage at the end of the panel and revealed that season three will focus primarily on the storylines from Book Four, with elements of Book Five, an announcement that brought mass cheers. He also teased audiences that they will get to meet additional members of the Forsaken and that the new season will explore Dreamwalking, an ability to enter the dreams of others. 


“During the panel, Judkins teased more key season three plot points, confirming that in addition to taking audiences back to the Two Rivers, the upcoming season will unveil fan-favorite cities never before seen on screen, including Tanchico and Rhuidean. Season Three will also visit the Aiel Waste, dive into the Aiel culture, and dig deeper into Aes Sedai politics at the White Tower. It will also explore new versions of channeling in other cultures and will introduce the famous Sea Folk, a seafaring people known for trading.”


In the Amazon Original series “The Wheel of Time,” Rand al’Thor (Josha Stradowski, Gran Turismo) learns he is The Dragon Reborn—a dangerous figure from history destined to save the world … or break it. Desperate to protect him from the Dark One, an army of powerful women must reckon with his burgeoning power and encroaching madness. The Wheel of Time turns, and the Last Battle approaches. Though Rand thought he destroyed the Dark One, evil is not gone from the world. In Season Two, new and ancient threats seek out the young friends from the Two Rivers, now scattered over the world. The woman who found and guided them is now powerless to help, so they must find other sources of strength. In each other or themselves. In the Light … or the Dark.


The second season was filmed in the Czech Republic, Morocco, and Italy, and stars Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl, I Care a Lot) as Moiraine Damodred, Daniel Henney (Criminal Minds) as Lan Mandragoran, Joshua Stradowski (Gran Turismo) as Rand al’Thor, Zoë Robins (Power Rangers Ninja Steel) as Nynaeve al’Meara, Madeleine Madden (Dora and the Lost City of Gold) as Egwene al’Vere, Marcus Rutherford (Obey) as Perrin Aybara, Dónal Finn (Rogue Heroes) as Mat Cauthon, and Ceara Coveney (Young Wallander) as Elayne Trakand. 


We will keep you posted as more details surrounding season three are revealed. In the meantime, you can now watch the complete first and second seasons of “The Wheel of Time,” which is “Certified Fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes, on Prime Video.
