With the second season of The Wheel of Time just a few weeks away we are getting weekly WOT Wednesday news. 


Today was a new trailer with the big news that the first three episodes of the second season will drop on September first. 




The other big drop today was a behind-the-scenes look at the Trollocs the “nightmare fuel” monsters for the dark. 




We hear from Rosamund Pike showrunner Rafe Judkins producers Mark Weber and Justine Juel Gillmer and make-up designer Nick Dudman. 

The trollocs are genetically engineered creatures created through a mix of human and animals like birds boars and bears. The show used a mix of practical and visual effects for the trollocs. We see both the creation of the practical with stilts and horns.




And the cgi visual effects:



The featurette shows how some of the stunts were performed and more behind the scenes of the creation of the Trollocs. 

“They are more than just monsters there is a human piece”




The humanity of the Trollocs is what makes them horrifying, not knowing how much they understand and think for themselves. It seems the second season will explore the complexity of the dark and hopefully will explore the humanity of the Trollocs. 

We can’t wait! What are you looking forward to seeing in the first three episodes? Let us know in the comments below!
