This is something that we actually revealed was happening not too long ago, but it’s good to see that Amazon has officially confirmed the news.
Vernon Sanders, who’s the head of global television at Amazon Studios had this to say about renewing The Wheel Of Time for a third season:
We are so excited to dive deeper into the world of The Wheel of Time with Rafe Judkins and his team, who have done such a marvelous job of honoring Robert Jordan’s vision and delivering an incredible viewing experience to Prime Video customers. Season One resonated with the most loyal of Jordan devotees, as well as the uninitiated, who were experiencing this incredible world for the first time, proving this is a show that truly stands out in the genre space. We couldn’t be happier to give fans more reasons to be excited about the show and bring more The Wheel of Time to our customers worldwide.
The Wheel Of Time Season 3 is happening
In a statement from Sony Pictures Television president Jeff Frost and co-president Jason Clodfelter they said:
Initially, people around the globe fell in love with Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time books and now thanks to Rafe Judkins and his incredible team that epic world has vividly been brought to life on Prime Video. We are so pleased to be able to continue the journey and deliver this remarkable story to fans around the world. Sony Pictures Television is proud to continue its partnership with Amazon Studios as we move toward Season Three.
When will Season 3 be released on Amazon Prime Video?
As for a release date, we still don’t know when the third season will be released on Amazon Prime Video.
We still don’t know when Season 2 will be released!
There’s been no official release date for The Wheel Of Time Season 2, but we do know that filming on the second season wrapped back in May of this year.
However, what you can do now is watch a teaser trailer for The Wheel Of Time Season 2 via the tweet below.

What could happen in The Wheel Of Time Seasons 2 and 3?
I know that there are many of you out there who are desperate to know what will end up happening in the second and third seasons.
However, given the fact that the first season did deviate pretty substantially from the books, it’s really hard to say.
That said, Vernon Sanders did state that they want to stay true to Robert Jordan’s vision, so it’s safe to assume that showrunner, Rafe Judkins and his team might want to start bringing the story back to its roots.
It’ll be very interesting to see where the story ends up going after Season 1’s rather barnstorming finale.
