Season one of the Amazon Prime series The Wheel of Time is nearing its end. The final episode will be out on the streaming giant on December 24 and fans can't wait for it. The last episode ended on a cliffhanger, leaving fans curious about what's going to happen when Moiraine and the Dragon Reborn enter the Waygate to end the Dark energy that could destroy the entire world. The fantasy series that stars Rosamund Pike, Josha Stradowski, Marcus Rutherford, Zoë Robins, Barney Harris, Madeleine Madden and Daniel Henney, among others, has turned out to be nothing but phenomenal with the stakes continuing to rise in the fictional magic world.

Creator Rude Judkins released a statement talking about the changes he brought onto the screen adaptation. He said, "In the world of The Wheel of Time, one of the most important aspects of it is that men and women use different forms of the One Power - essentially two halves of the One Source - and that in the books, the male half of the source has been corrupted. So, for thousands of years now only women have been able to successfully use this form of magic that they call channeling.”

The creator of the show further credited the book to bring out the gender and balance of power in a very complex manner which he has adapted for the screen as well. He said the series is a story of balance when it comes to gender and how we find a balance between the two genders and people finding that balance within themselves. "The fans of the books and people who come to the show that haven't read the books before, on the second and third watching, they will notice little things in the lighting, the production design, the costumes, the lines that the characters say, the music that you hear, all of that should hopefully reveal more the more you listen to it and watch it,” he added. The finale of season one of the series will be available to stream on Amazon Prime Video from December 24. Fans can stream the show in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
