It’s been revealed that Amazon has delayed The Wheel Of Time Season 2’s release date because of their upcoming Lord Of The Ring series. This was revealed by Amazon’s head of global TV Vernon Sanders during an interview with TV Line.
Here is what Vernon Sanders had to say about The Wheel Of Time Season 2’s release date during the interview:
We’re still talking about it. Rafe and his team just sent us their first cuts of the first episodes of Season 2, and I cannot wait for the audience to see what we have in store.
He was then asked about Lord Of The Rings’ release date (September 2nd, 2022) and whether it might push The Wheel Of Time Season 2’s release date:
We are going to be really thoughtful about how we release these shows. In our minds, they are very different shows, but we are cognizant of our genre fans, and we are excited about the collection of content we have — those two, along with The Expanse and The Boys, Carnival Row is coming back, we have a fantastic show with [Westworld creators] Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy called The Peripheral…. We are very excited about the future.
The Wheel Of Time Season 2’s release date has been delayed by Amazon
So, it sounds like Amazon has a lot of great sci-fi and fantasy shows coming out in 2022, and they’re going to have to do some serious juggling with regards to their release dates in 2022. It’s not a bad problem to have.
It’s actually a really good one. However, it does mean that we might have to wait a few more months than we would have liked for The Wheel Of Time Season 2.
The second season of the show’s already filming, and they’re already working on editing the first few episodes of Season 2. This means that they should be done with Season 2 relatively soon.
Amazon’s Lord Of The Rings series is going to be huge
As for Amazon’s next big show, it looks like their upcoming Lord Of The Rings show is going to be a giant hit for the streaming platform. It was a big deal when Amazon got the rights to the franchise.
They started working on the series pretty quickly, and it could end up becoming as big – if not bigger – as HBO’s Game Of Thrones. Wouldn’t that be something?
