What To Expect From The Next Season?
In the first season of The Wheel Of Time, Rand was revealed to be the Dragon Reborn. He entered the Eye of the World with Moiraine to face the Dark One. But he hid as a human and tried to convince Rand to join him. However, the young Dragon Reborn refused to do so, and the Dark One’s figure was eventually banished. On the other hand, Moiraine got attacked by the evil creature and lost her magical abilities as a result. In addition, she severed her ties with Lan.
Now, The Wheel Of Time Season 2 will resume the story of the main characters. It will also feature a completely different version of Moiraine, according to the second novel in the series ‘The Great Hunt’. In addition, the five kids’ magical abilities will continue to develop.
The first episode of Season 2 is titled ‘A Taste of Solitude.’ It could be alluding to Rand’s lone quest, which stems from his decision to leave the rest of his Two Rivers comrades behind. Furthermore, Judkins has also claimed that the following part would expand on the setting that the first season has created.
