Wheel Of Time Stars Discuss How The Series Separates Itself From Game Of Thrones

Prime Video's Wheel of Time series, based on the beloved and best-selling fantasy series of the same name, took a lot of criticism for its first season, but after two years and solid viewership, Season Two will arrive September 1 on the streaming service.

Having filmed seasons two and three back-to-back, and with the main goal being able to get five altogether, the show takes some rather large liberties with how the story unfolds compared to the book series. The Wheel of Time book series consists of 14 main books, with a prequel novel detailing the origins of Moiraine and Lan, played by Rosamund Pike and Daniel Henney on the show, respectively.

However, the biggest challenge for the series to get there might not be fan backlash, but the fact that even though The Wheel of Time predates A Song of Fire and Ice's publication date, the show has a lot of catching up to do to be part of the cultural zeitgeist the same way Game of Thrones has for over a decade. 

To complicate that even more, Amazon is also home to a show with an even larger following--The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.
