Wheel of Time season 2 premieres with three episodes on Friday, Sept. 1 at 12 a.m. ET on Prime Video.

The Wheel of Time season 2 is based on the second book, The Great Hunt, as well as some elements of the third novel, The Dragon Reborn. Humble farm boy Rand al’Thor (Josha Stradowski) has learned he is the Dragon Reborn, a dangerous figure destined to save the world … or break it. Though Rand thought he destroyed the Dark One at the end of season 1, evil is not gone from the world.

Desperate to protect him from the Dark One, the powerful sorceresses called Aes Sedai must reckon with his burgeoning power and encroaching madness. Moiraine (Rosamund Pike), the Aes Sedai who first found him, is now powerless to help either Rand or his young friends from the Two Rivers. As they scatter across the land, threats new and very old seek them out.
