Based on the novels by Robert Jordan, the beloved Wheel of Time books are coming to Amazon Prime Video. Now, four cast members and their characters have been revealed.
Alvaro Morte (Money Heist) has been cast as Logain, Hammed Animashaun (Black Mirror) as Loial, Alexandre Willaume (Tomb Raider) as Thom Merrilin, and Johann Myers (The Lost City of Z) as Padan Fain.
One of the most popular fantasy series of all time, The Wheel of Time takes place in a world where magic exists but only some women are allowed to use it. The main story follows Moiraine, who is part of Aes Sedai, an all-female organization. She goes on a journey across the world with five others, and one of them is prophesied to be the person who will destroy or save humanity.
The showrunner will be Rafe Judkins (Agents of SHIELD), who will also executive produce alongside Larry Mondragon, Rick Selvage, Ted Field, Mike Weber, Darren Lemke, Marigo Kehoe, and Uta Briesewitz. The first two episodes of the series will be directed by Briesewitz. The Wheel of Time is a joint venture between Sony Pictures and Amazon Studios.

In his review of the first 10 episodes of this new season, GameSpot’s Michael Rougeau said, “We won’t know exactly how Season 4 will shake out–or whether we can fully embrace the show’s trajectory on its new home. But from this vantage, things are looking very, very good for The Expanse.”
