Is The Wheel of Time season 2 based on a book?
The Amazon series is based on Robert Jordan’s epic fantasy series of the same name which has sold more than 100 million copies worldwide.
Whilst the show deviates from the books in many respects, they are the source material that the show is adapted from. The first season was based on the first book in the series, The Eye of the World, but also took elements from the second and third books.
Season two is expected to be mostly adapted from book two, The Great Hunt, a 700 page tome.
Jordan wrote 14 instalments of the sprawling series published between 1990 and 2013, with fantasy legend Brandon Sanderson joining him as co-author for the final three novels. There will be plenty of scope for further seasons of the show after the season two finale is released.
In fact, season three has already been greenlit, and showrunner Rafe Judkins suggested that the entire show could run for eight seasons.
