Robert Jordan’s popular 14-book high fantasy series Wheel of Time will soon be adapted into a tv series after a long series of mishaps. Back in 2015, Red Eagle Entertainment aired a pilot of a tv adaptation of the series on FXX. Harriet McDougal, the widow of the late author, stated that she had not been alerted about this adaptation. Since then, there have been many legal issues hindering the continuation of any adaptation. Now, those issues seem to be resolved, and an adaptation is planned.

According to Screenrant, Red Eagle is producing this adaptation along with Sony and Radar Pictures. Rafe Judkins is the rumored executive producer along with Ted Field, Darren Lemke, Larry Mondragon, Rick Selvage and Mike Weber. Harriet McDougal will serve as a consulting producer.

The book series is one of the most well-beloved series among fantasy readers. Jordan wrote the books from 1991 until his death in 2007, and McDougal edited them. After Jordan’s death, Elantris author Brandon Sanderson completed the series. The upcoming tv series might appeal to fans of Games of Thrones.
