It has been revealed that Liandrin Guirale’s past and darker side will be explored more in Season 2 of “The Wheel of Time”, which will be hosted by Kate Fleetwood.
According to actress Kate Fleetwood, the second season of “The Wheel of Time” will highlight Liandrin’s darker side. “The Wheel of Time”, which is based on Robert Jordan’s enormous high-fantasy series of the same name, which has a total of 17 parts, launched on Amazon Prime Video on November 19, 2017, and concluded its first season the following month, on December 24, 2018. With the renewal of “The Wheel of Time“ for a second season just a few months before the series’ launch, Amazon shown considerable faith in its adaptation.
Rosamund Pike stars as Moiraine Damodred, a member of the Aes Sedai, a powerful group of women who have the capacity to channel the One Power. Rosamund Pike is the show’s principal actress. “The Wheel of Time” follows Moiraine as she searches for the reincarnation of the Dragon, a powerful channeler prophesied to be responsible for the Breaking of the World and the world’s best hope of defeating the evil known as the Dark One. With the assistance of her Warder and companion, al’Lan Mandragoran (Daniel Henney), “The Wheel of Time” follows Moiraine as she searches for the reincarnation of the Dragon, a powerful channeler prophe In the episode, Liandrin Guirale, another member of the Aes Sedai, is presented as one of the first probable enemies to be introduced.
Following that, Fleetwood revealed more details about her character’s future during a virtual panel at JordanCon 2022 (via CBR). “Liandrin will be given a more challenging character journey in Wheel of Time season 2,” says the actor, who adds that this would entail exploration of her background as well as her “darker side.” Take a look at what she had to say below:
I’ve really enjoyed the playfulness of Liandrin. But there is, there are — there’s a deeper and a darker side to Liandrin, but also her own personal backstory I’ve really been able to immerse myself in the second season which has been a real gift… there’s definitely some surprises in store in Season 2.
Fans of the fantasy series will not be surprised by Fleetwood’s remark, which he made in a recent interview. Early on, it was clear that Wheel of Time was laying the groundwork for Liandrin to become the series’ first major antagonist. Liandrin is a Taraboner who serves as a member of the Red Ajah division of the Aes Sedai. Her major purpose is to regulate incorrect use of the One Power and track down insane male channelers, which she accomplishes through the use of the One Power. Despite the fact that she is not expressly evil, Liandrin is first presented as an enemy to Moiraine, Lan, and Nynaeve due to the manner in which she manipulates people in order to fulfill her political objectives. According to Fleetwood’s comments, it appears like Liandrin will take a more significant step toward villainy in the second season.
While Liandrin’s role is expected to grow, she will still have to compete for screen time with numerous newcomers, including Julian Lewis Jones as Bayle Damon and Ayoola Smart, who previously appeared in Killing Eve, as Aviendha, Maiden of the Spear. According to reports, production for Wheel of Time season 2 completed up last month, which implies that the show might premiere later this year if the reports are correct. “The Wheel of Time” season 1 is currently available on Amazon Prime Video, so fans may catch up on the show in the meanwhile.
