The Wheel of Time Season 2 premieres at the end of the week. With it getting a weekly release, you’ll want to know the episode count to know when the finale will air.
Are you ready for The Wheel of Time Season 2? We certainly are, and there isn’t much longer left to wait. The first three episodes will air this Friday, Sept. 1.
Yes, this is getting a weekly release format just like the first season. After the first three episodes air, we’ll get one episode per week. This has turned into a successful release strategy for Amazon so it’s not surprising that this show is getting this release structure again.
With it getting this structure, you’ll want to know the episode count. This will tell you how long the wait for the Season 2 finale is going to be.
The Wheel of Time Season 2 episode count
There will be eight episodes in this second season. That matches the episode count of the first season. It puts the finale on Friday, Oct. 6.
Eight episodes is great for fantasy shows. It allows for time to adapt the book, but also helps to reduce the need for filler content to keep audiences engaged. It’s not like a show like this would need filler content, though. There is so much going on with the multiple storylines to follow.
This is not going to be the final season. The third season was already confirmed, and we don’t see that being “unrenewed” in the way that The Peripheral and A League of Their Own have been. Production had already started on the show before the WGA strike. It’s not clear if production was delayed due to the WGA, but it would have likely halted with the SAG-AFTRA strike. This will depend on whether the show is filming under the SAG-AFTRA union or the Equity union, which is how House of the Dragon is able to keep filming.
The Wheel of Time Season 2 will air Fridays on Prime Video.
