It’s happening! It’s finally happening! I don’t know how they’re going to cover so many characters, communities, battles and plot lines, but I can’t wait to see what they come up with.

I’m sure there were similar discussions before Game of Thrones was picked up for television. Such a great series with so many amazing and diverse people. I’m excited to see who they choose to play them.

Great news for fans of the Robert Jordan high fantasy series The Wheel of Time, as it was officially announced that the novels will be made into a television series.

Robert Jordan’s widow and editor, Harriet McDougal shared the news with fans on Google+, writing:

Update: Wanted to share with you exciting news about ‘The Wheel of Time.’ Legal issues have been resolved. ‘The Wheel of Time’ will become a cutting edge TV series! I couldn’t be more pleased. Look for the official announcement coming soon from a major studio —Harriet

The Wheel of Time series began with The Eye of the World released in 1990 and ended with A Memory of Light which was completed by Brandon Sanderson in 2013 after Robert Jordan’s death in 2007.
