New Wheel Of Time Set Photos Show What Fans Can Expect From Season 2

It's been over a year and a half since "The Wheel of Time" first aired on Prime Video, but it looks like fans finally have an ironclad date for when the fantasy series will return. Robert Jordan's epic saga of might and magic is set to reappear on the small screen on September 1st.

While the end of Season 1 saw Rand al'Thor (Josha Stradowski) tested by the Dark One (Fares Fares) and revealed that five of the central characters are Ta'veren, it also suggested that some of the heroes in "The Wheel of Time" might inevitably turn to The Dark One's side. This is alarming, as The Dark One already wields a fearsome band known as The Forsaken, which is 13 members strong.

Either way, Prime Video has released several new images from Season 2 that will give fans a hint of things to come as they await the arrival of new episodes this fall. While they might not say much on their own to those who haven't read "The Wheel of Time" book series, they show off some lavish production values and beautiful shot compositions for viewers to feast their eyes on.

Season 2 of The Wheel of Time showcases new locations

As fans of Robert Jordan's book series will note, the fact that two of the new images for Season 2 of "The Wheel of Time" show a desert locale suggests that at least one character will be journeying to the Aiel Waste. This is, of course, in line with the events from the second book in the series, "The Great Hunt," which sees Rand and other key characters meet up with the Aiel at one point.

However, being that Prime Video's adaptation of "The Wheel of Time" has deviated somewhat from the source material, we can't be sure how closely it will follow this plotline. Still, something we do know is that one of Rand's love interests, Aviendha (Ayoola Smart), will make her debut in Season 2, as she's featured in one of the new images.

The remainder of the images are mainly character-focused, showing various cast members in new environments in Season 2 of "The Wheel of Time." Being that Jordan's fantasy saga has 14 books of material to cover, fans can also probably look forward to the timeline being sped up in the latest batch of episodes, with plenty of side material excised in the process.
