According to the good folks over at Variety, the series has cast the characters of Chiad, Bain, Dain Bornhald, and Sheriam Bayanar for the upcoming season. These colourful additions to the cast promise to add depth and intrigue to the already captivating series. So, without further ado, let’s have a gander at who these new characters are and who will be portraying them, shall we?

  1. Chiad: A fierce and skilled warrior of the Aiel, Chiad is known for her agility and prowess in battle. This exciting role will be brought to life by the talented Maja Simonsen, who has previously showcased her acting chops in Netflix’s Emily In Paris. Fans of the books will know that Chiad’s journey is intertwined with that of Bain, and we can’t wait to see this dynamic duo in action on screen.
  2. Bain: Another fierce Aiel warrior and Chiad’s closest friend, Bain is portrayed by the exceptional Ragga Ragnars. Known for her performances in the hit TV show Vikings, Ragnars is sure to bring the perfect blend of ferocity and camaraderie to the role. The duo of Chiad and Bain are known for their sisterly bond and unparalleled teamwork, and we’re confident that these two actresses will do justice to their characters’ legendary partnership.
  3. Dain Bornhald: A dedicated officer of the Children of the Light, Dain Bornhald is driven by his quest for justice and his pursuit of Darkfriends. Jay Duffy, a familiar face from Hollyoaks, will be stepping into Bornhald’s boots for The Wheel of Time Season 2. With his steely gaze and commanding presence, Duffy is sure to make a formidable impact as the zealous Dain Bornhald.
  4. Sheriam Bayanar: As the Mistress of Novices at the White Tower, Sheriam Bayanar is a key figure in the world of Aes Sedai. This pivotal role will be portrayed by the esteemed Rima Te Wiata, who has previously enchanted audiences with her performance in Kiri and Lou. We anticipate that her portrayal of Sheriam will bring a perfect mix of warmth, wisdom, and authority to the character.

With these four new characters joining the already stellar cast, The Wheel of Time Season 2 is shaping up to be an even more enthralling and immersive experience for fans of the series. They’re going to be joined by the returning cast of Rosamund Pike, Daniel Henney, Zoë Robins, Madeleine Madden, Josha Stradowski, Marcus Rutherford, Kate Fleetwood, Sophie Okonedo, Alvaro Morte, Hammed Animashaun, Alexandre Willaume, Johann Myers, Kae Alexander, Fares Fares and Priyanka Bose.

One actor who won’t be returning to the series is Barney Harris, who played Mat Cauthon in the first season. I thought he was one of the best performers in the first season. However, it was revealed that he was going to be replaced by Dónal Finn in Season 2 and beyond.

When will The Wheel of Time Season 2 Be Released?
