Should I Watch It? The Wheel of Time season 2, the high fantasy series you won’t stop thinking about.

Streaming from September 1, season 2 promises bloodthirsty battles, powerful tugs-of-war for ultimate power, new friendships, old enemies, and a plethora of magic.

Yup, The Wheel Of Time is the action-packed high fantasy series we’ve all been waiting for. 

Below I unpack what exactly The Wheel of Time is about and give my verdict on whether you should watch it: 

What is The Wheel of Time about?

The Wheel of Time begins when at the dawn of time, the literal Wheel Of Time is created and spins the Pattern of the Ages using the lives of men and women as its threads. 

The Wheel is divided into seven spokes, each representing an age, and is coated by the One Power. After an Aes Sedai accidentally allows the Dark One to channel his influence and corruption into the world after a spell goes wrong, it is up to the Dragon Reborn to either destroy The Wheel’s enemy or humanity itself. 

The adaptation centres on Moiraine, a member of the Aes Sedai, a powerful organisation of women who can wield magic. 

She visits a small village in search of an individual prophesied to either save the world or destroy it. 

As the Last Battle with the Dark One approaches, Moiraine leads five young villagers on a dangerous journey to new lands to discover which of them is the Dragon Reborn.

In the end, will the Dark One win?

Come for the… 

Action-packed fantasy that leaves you on the edge of your seat. The beautiful thing about The Wheel of Time is that it promotes the force of female empowerment and the ability to believe in magic.
