WHEEL OF TIME SERIES
THE WHEEL WEAVES AS THE WHEEL WILLS
Believe it or not it is already November tomorrow (I have no idea what so freaking ever where did this sad year go) and it brings us a couple of new
fantasy series, among them the long awaited small screen adaptation of Robert Jordan's popular high fantasy saga THE WHEEL OF TIME which he wrote in fourteen books, a task that took him about two decades of his life. Now his work is arriving to Amazon Prime on November 19th in a form of an eight episode fantasy drama. First three episodes will air then with the remaining five airing weekly after that all the way till Christmas. As you already know the series has been renewed for a second season as well earlier this spring and I have recently announced some of the new cast members that will join the series soon. Rafe Judkins, serving
as the showrunner, said that the first season will cover first three books.

THE WHEEL OF TIME
is set in a sprawling, epic world where magic exists and only certain women are allowed to access it. It follows Rand al'Thor (Josha Stradowski), who leads a small and humble life in a small town called the Two Rivers. There is danger lurking, however, in the potential attacks from the Dark One, an evil entity that wants to destroy everything. A sorceress, and a member of the incredibly powerful, all female organization called the Aes Sedai, by the name of
Moiraine (Rosamund Pike) takes Rand and his friends away from their
home, as she believes one of them might be the reincarnation of the
an ancient hero who is prophesied to either save or destroy the
world. Together, they embark on a dangerous, world spanning journey!
