WHEEL OF TIME TV series gets official poster, November 2021 release date

Amazon have confirmed the long-held theory that their Wheel of Time TV series will hit screens in November thanks to the show's first official poster.

The poster shows Rosamund Pike as Moiraine Damodred, an Aes Sedai of the Blue Ajah, a wielder of the One Power. In this time and place, only women can safely wield the One Power. Any man who tries to wield it is doomed to go insane and die horribly, doing great damage to those around him. But prophecy states that a great threat is returning, and a man known as the Dragon Reborn is the only hope of the world to defeat this threat. But prophecy also states that the Dragon Reborn will shatter the world in the process. The Aes Sedai seek any sign of this man so they may guide and control him...and eliminate him should the need arise.

Production of the first season was paused twice by COVID restrictions in the Czech Republic, where it was filmed. Production wrapped earlier this year and, after only a brief pause, the cameras have started rolling on Season 2.

A full trailer is expected to arrive before the end of August.
