‘The Wheel Of Time’ Renewed For Season 3 At Amazon

Amazon has handed an early Season 3 renewal to its fantasy epic series The Wheel of Time.

The move, unveiled during the show’s Comic-Con presentation,

comes ahead of the launch of Season 2 of the Rosamund Pike-fronted series.

The first season of the series, which consisted of eight episodes, premiered in November.

The Wheel of Time, set in a sprawling, epic world where magic exists but only women

can use it, is co-produced by Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television and comes

from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and Chuck writer Rafe Judkins, who is showrunner and exec producer.

The story follows Moiraine (Rosamund Pike), a member of the incredibly powerful

all-female organization called the Aes Sedai, as she arrives in the small town of Two Rivers.
