5 ‘Wheel of Time’ Season 2 Revelations from JordanCon – FlixChatter Movie Weblog



Hello, FlixChatter readers! I do know JordanCon was a month in the past; I apologize for getting this put up to you so late. The con was a blast, and I’m trying ahead to attending in 2023 (I’m already planning my cosplay for subsequent 12 months). Whereas there wasn’t a whole lot of official Wheel of Time present content material (principally simply fan-led panels), Amazon did put collectively a video of forged and crew members answering fan questions, which premiered at JordanCon.

You possibly can watch the entire video under (which I’d extremely advocate as a result of there are some lovely and hilarious moments from a number of forged members in addition to attention-grabbing inventive insights), however earlier than you accomplish that, are a couple of attention-grabbing items of details about the following season.

WOT-Ayoola-Smart1. Ayoola Good has been forged as Aviendha.
The casting of Aviendha was a extremely anticipated announcement for a very long time, so followers had been excited to lastly put a face to the long-lasting Aiel girl. I gained’t go into an excessive amount of element about her character, since I don’t need to spoil something for non-readers, however I’m excited to see Ayoola carry her to life; the depth in her headshots alone makes me optimistic that she will be able to do the position justice, and showrunner Rafe Judkins‘s enthusiasm for her efficiency looks like a constructive signal as properly.

2. There might be extra LGBTQIA+ illustration within the present.
The fantasy style, and particularly older works inside it, isn’t recognized for its illustration of various sexual orientations. There’s some subtext in The Wheel of Time books, however I can depend the specific references to any non-heterosexual characters or relationships on one hand. That’s why it’s so refreshing to see a few of that subtext grow to be textual content.


Rafe explains that they’ve been taking issues that had been instructed or hinted at within the books as being LGBTQIA+ and increasing on them, in addition to taking characters whose orientation we don’t know something about and giving them one thing, and that’s one thing they plan on persevering with to do. “You will notice us lean into these locations which can be already so current within the books after which attempt to discover room to inform extra of the emotional historical past of a few of these characters,” he states. 

3. There might be extra give attention to polyamorous relationships in season 2.
After I noticed this query, I assumed the reply could be centered round a extra high-profile polyamorous storyline from the books, however whereas the present will definitely discover that finally, it gained’t be the one one which will get consideration.


We already had a glimpse at a polyamorous relationship in season 1 between Inexperienced Aes Sedai Alanna (Priyanka Bose) and her warders Ihvon (Emmanuel Imani) and Maksim (Taylor Napier), and that relationship might be explored extra in season 2. “[..]There’s not only one relationship occurring there, there are three relationships,” Rafe explains. 

4. Season 2 will mix extra sensible and CGI results.
Due to Covid, season 1 was extra closely reliant on CGI particular results, however the showrunners need to have extra of a steadiness between sensible and digital results going ahead.


In keeping with Rafe, they’ll use extra of a mixture of the 2, saying with amusing, “[Y]ou hopefully are by no means trying on the present going ‘Oh that’s a cool CGI impact…or not a cool CGI impact,” occurring to clarify that they need to create a extra immersive expertise. 

5. We’re going to Falme.
Falme, a big harbor city in The Wheel of Time collection, is the setting of a pair enormous plot factors that I gained’t spoil for these of you who haven’t learn the books, however suffice it to say that I’m hyped.
