What is The Wheel of Time about?

Based on the best-selling Robert Jordan fantasy series of the same name, The Wheel of Time follows Rand al’Thor (Josha Stradowski), a humble farm boy, as learns he is The Dragon Reborn — a dangerous figure from history destined to save the world, or break it.

Desperate to protect him from the Dark One, an army of powerful sorceresses come together to reckon with his burgeoning power and encroaching madness. And so, the Wheel of Time turns, and the Last Battle takes place. But, while Rand thought he destroyed the Dark One, evil is not gone from the world.

In Season two, threats new and very old seek out the young friends from the Two Rivers, now scattered over the world. The woman who found and guided them is now powerless to help, and so they must find other sources of strength. In each other, or themselves.

Season two is finally here.
