It appears as though the rumors circling the halls of JordanCon, the Robert Jordan fan convention, last week have finally been revealed to be true.

Tor, longtime publishers of The Wheel of Time series are substantiating the report, but offer no additional news and temper fans that the news does not necessarily mean a show is ready for production, but that the rights are now clear to do so. In a post Lord of The Rings and Game of Thrones world, it’s hard to see why The Wheel of Time series had yet to be fully realized as a movie or television production, but hopefully the path is now clear to start that journey.
