The amazing series based on the novels written by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson received a lot of success, so it doesn’t come as a shock that Amazon is cashing in on the success. According to a report by Deadline, the series has already been renewed for Season 3. The reports confirmed the news while examining the cast of ‘Criminal Minds’.

The report also suggests that Daniel Henney, who portrays the character of Lan Mandragoran on the show, will make a potential guest appearance in ‘Criminal Minds' “subject to his commitment to the next two seasons of the former show.” However, there is no official confirmation from Amazon as of now.

So, it seems Daniel will be playing an important role in the next two seasons to come and will join Moiraine in her journey to save the world.

The news of the show getting renewed for a third edition comes a couple of days after it was revealed that Season 2 of ‘The Wheel of Time’ won’t be returning in February 2022. But, it is not listed on Amazon’s press site and the only two big releases it shows are ‘The Boys’ (June 3) and ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’ (September 2). The filming is ongoing and then post-production will also take some time.
