Season 2 of The Wheel of Time is coming to Amazon Prime, and it cannot arrive soon enough after the conclusion of the first season during the holidays (while proving to be quite popular). While fans of the book on which the show is based were divided, the episode itself was a mishmash.
Nonetheless, Amazon is on track to release Season 2 later this year. We do not yet have a release date for the next installment, but we do have some information about it. We have recently learned that a new cast member has been added to the show.
Here is everything we currently know about “The Wheel of Time” season 2.
The Wheel of Time Season 2: Cast
The second season of The Wheel of Time will bring new and extended characters, as well as a whole new ensemble. There are several speculations as to why Barney Harris will no longer represent Mat, but none of them have been confirmed.
Harris has been replaced by Dónal Finn, who you may recognize from The Witcher or How to Build a Girl. Other characters, such as Guy Roberts’s one-eyed soldier Uno Nomesta from the last series, will have recurring roles. Arnas Federavicius portrays Masema Dagar, a converted soldier-prophet (The Last Kingdom).

In the Netflix series Young Wallander, Ceara Coveney portrays Elayne Trakand. She is an incredibly powerful Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah. Natasha O’Keefe and Meera Syal (Yesterday, The Kumars) will also feature as characters with unclear identities.
Rafe Judkins confirmed Deadline Hammed Animashaun’s comeback as Local. Unbeknownst to fans, Ogier and the rest of the cast have been filming in Prague.
In the series, some characters from the novels will perish. Thus, even avid readers may be shocked. Judkins desires that the show have eight seasons so that they can cover the major plot arcs of Robert Jordan’s fourteen novels.
The Wheel of Time Season 2: Plot
The first season revealed that rather than following the chronology of the novels in chronological order, the Wheel of Time television series uses pieces from other books to assist the narrative flow. This makes it more difficult to anticipate the future direction of the show.
During interviews, a number of the show’s actors have teased the upcoming season. Kate Fleetwood alluded to the emergence of Liandrin Guirale’s darker side during a JordanCon 2022 panel.
“I’ve appreciated Liandrin’s humor,” Fleetwood added, “but she also has a darker side and her personal history.” She said, “I’ve been able to immerse myself in the second season, which has been a tremendous joy… there are some surprises in store for Season 2.”
The second season of Allan Mandragoran will be scarier than the first, according to actor Daniel Henney. “It’s tough for me not to reveal too much,” he said, “but I’ll say this: there are two swords, numerous Fades, and blood… plenty of blood.”
Aside from that, we’re hoping that the second season will continue to explore the Dragon Born’s ancestry and that we’ll see Rand grow into his new role.
In the meantime, the remaining members of the Two Rivers gang are still attempting to determine their role in the conspiracy. Consequently, we will undoubtedly learn a great deal more about Perrin’s wolf brother skills. Mat will return to the plot (with his new actor) and we expect him to resume his shenanigans with ancient artifacts, revealing more about the past in the process.
We also have a peek at the Seanchan in the season one finale. During the upcoming season, the mighty maritime empire will unquestionably pose a threat. The budding love triangle between Lan, Moiraine, and Nynaeve will also receive a substantial amount of screentime.
