The Wheel of Time is one of the most popular and enduring fantasy series of all time, with over 90 million books sold. Set in a sprawling, epic world where magic exists and only certain women are allowed to access it, the story follows Moiraine (Rosamund Pike, I Care A Lot, Gone Girl), a member of the incredibly powerful all-female organization called the Aes Sedai, as she arrives in the small town of Two Rivers. There, she embarks on a dangerous, world-spanning journey with five young men and women, one of whom is prophesied to be the Dragon Reborn, who will either save or destroy humanity.
The Wheel of Time also stars Daniel Henney (Criminal Minds), who plays Lan Mandragoran; Zoë Robins (Power Rangers Ninja Steel), who plays Nynaeve al’Meara; Madeleine Madden (Dora and the Lost City of Gold), who plays Egwene al’Vere; Josha Stradowski (Just Friends), who plays Rand al’Thor; and Marcus Rutherford (Obey), who plays Perrin Aybara.
Based on Robert Jordan’s best-selling fantasy novels, which have sold more 90 million copies worldwide, The Wheel of Time was adapted for television by executive producer/showrunner Rafe Judkins (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Hemlock Grove). Larry Mondragon and Rick Selvage of Red Eagle Entertainment (Winter Dragon), Ted Field and Mike Weber of Radar Pictures (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Winter Dragon), Darren Lemke (Shazam!, Goosebumps, Winter Dragon), and Marigo Kehoe also serve as executive producers. Rosamund Pike will serve as producer and Harriet McDougal and Brandon Sanderson as consulting producers. The Wheel of Time is co-produced by Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television.
