Wheel of Time Series Gets the Green Light

Wheel of Time Series Gets the Green Light

Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time fantasy series will finally be adapted for television. Amazon has greenlit the project, and has Rafe Judkins (Agents of SHIELD,  Hemlock Grove) lined up to write and act as showrunner.

Adaptations of The Wheel of Time have been attempted before, with little success. NBC planned a series based on the novels back in 2000, Universal optioned it for a movie franchise in 2008, and a low budget pilot was made and aired without fanfare in 2015 in a stealth attempt to hold onto the rights.

Now, the issues appear to have been cleared up, and Amazon is ready to bring the epic battle between light and darkness to the small screen.
