The Wheel of Time came to Amazon Prime last November to catch us and show us all the strength of women in a 17th century social system, as its synopsis says. We also saw how the figures of the Aes Sadai, and all the magic that surrounds them, have been able to master and make contact with the One Power that is capable of turning the wheel, but which characters will turn around in this new season to add more drama to this series? It is time to find out if any of them will have a dark side that they will let out in this new season.
Based on the saga of high fantasy novels written by the American author James Oliver Rigney, Jr. Better known as Robert Jordan, The Wheel of Time premiered in 2021 with a spectacular cast and a wonderful staging, with appropriate scenery and costumes. for the plot they posed.
Of the 15 stories that this saga has, they have only developed the first season and it already appears that the second is loaded with new characters and changes in some of those we already know, such as the actress Kate Fleetwood, who plays Liandrin Guirale on the show, and recently at an annual fan convention (JordanCon), talked a bit about the second season.
At that same meeting with fans, several prominent members of the cast and crew appeared virtually to talk about the first season of the Amazon series and to give a taste of what’s to come in season 2. Figures such as Ayoola Smart, will play Aiel Maiden of the Spear Aviendha.
What should we know about Liandrin?
The second season of The Wheel of Time will delve deeper into the character Liandrin and her story will be explored much more. Although we already know that she is a member of the Red Ajah of the Aes Sedai and that she fights to eradicate male channelers and keep the peace in the most authoritarian way possible. However, next season it looks like book readers will see a much more familiar Liandrin, even though she was a villain in what we’ve already seen of the series. A baddie who sometimes clashed with Moiraine (Rosamund Pike) and wanted to convince Nynaeve (Zoë Robins) that Red Ajah was the best fit for a budding Aes Sedai.
The Wheel of Time season 2 already finished principal photography last month supposedly, although Amazon has not made any official announcement about it. So we hope to see more of this character that, despite the marked differences between the book and the screen, Liandrin is actually a little grayer and less disgusting than in the texts, all thanks to the contribution that Kate has given Fleetwood in creating a layered role so as not to generate rejection in the audience.
“I have really enjoyed the joy of Liandrin. But there is a deeper and darker side to Liandrin, but also his own personal story. I’ve really been able to immerse myself in Season 2, which has been a real treat…there are definitely some surprises in store for Season 2.”
