Wheel Of Time Season 3 is highly awaited by the audience. The epic fantasy series of Prime Video is based on the best-selling book series by Robert Jordan turned out to be a hit. Wheel Of Time focuses on the story of Moiraine Damodred, an Aes Sedai sorceress who goes in search of the Dragon Reborn or prophesied savior.
Dragon Reborn will vanquish the Dark One, the symbol of evil. The second season has barely been out for a month, but we’re already buzzing with excitement for Wheel Of Time Season 3. Let’s start digging in!
The exact release date of Wheel Of Time season 3 has not been announced, but we can provide reasonable assumptions. The filming started in April 2023 and wrapped in June 2023. However, these were interrupted by the WGA and SAG strikes.
Wheel Of Time Season 3 could be launched in late 2024 if everything went smoothly. The third season is expected to have a total of 8 episodes like the previous ones. Nevertheless, there could be delays in releasing season 3 since the show has intricate visuals and post-production aspects.
The showrunner of Wheel Of Time said, “S3 is even more sophisticated and rich and deep than S2.”
What To Expect From Wheel Of Time Season 3?
The fourth book in the series titled ‘The Shadow Rising’ is expected to be the main plot of Wheel Of Time Season 2.
In the book, Rand, Mat, and Egwene will proceed to the Aiel Waste while Perrin will return to the Two Rivers. The shadow power, the Forsaken channelers, will also be presented more. In a recent interview, showrunner Rafe Judkins teased some of the specific plot arcs that we can expect to see in season 3.
According to the showrunner, Rand’s identity as the Dragon Reborn will continue to be a thorn in his flesh. He will have to learn to control his tremendous powers. Although Mat will still keep his unpredictable ways, he’ll begin to establish himself as a leader. Egwene will be trained to become an aes sedai. She will begin to develop her power as a channeler.
Perrin is coming back to the Two Rivers to save his people from the forces of the Dark One. The Forsaken will be more active and present a great danger to the Dragon Reborn and his friends. These are all just speculation, what we know for sure is that Wheel Of Time season 3 will be exciting!
We’re most excited to see that It’s about time Rand gets his destiny back as the Dragon Reborn. This is one of the most epic moments in the series. We are eager to see how it is done in the TV adaptation!
The audience also looks forward to seeing more of the Forsaken. These are some of the most interesting and complex characters in the show, and we need to know even more.
Lastly, we can’t wait to see what will happen with some of the other plot points from the fourth book, especially Mat’s trip to the Stone of Tear and Perrin’s struggle with the Trollocs.
We expect to see all of the main cast members in Wheel Of Time season 3. Without them, the season will be incomplete. We will even get to explore more of the character’s personality in the upcoming season. The lead characters include:
- Rosamund Pike as Moiraine Damodred
- Josha Stradowski as Rand al’Thor

According to Judkins, season 3 will be the darkest of them all, tonally and visually. This means that the Aiel Waste and other new locations from the books may be expected. The show’s VFX team is working on producing more visually stunning scenes for season 3.
There are minimal updates on Wheel Of Time Season 3 but we know that it will be exciting. So far, the show has done a good job of turning the books into the season and we hope the upcoming season will be even better.
