It’s almost time for The Rings of Power. It comes as no surprise that anticipation for the live-action Lord of the Rings TV series on Amazon is escalating in the lead-up to its debut.
It’s good news that the next Prime Video show will debut with two episodes on launch day(opens in new tab). Therefore, when the fantasy prequel series debuts in early September, fans of The Lord of the Rings will undoubtedly be satisfied.
We are starting to discover a lot more about Prime Video’s Lord of the Rings TV show as the actors and crew set out on a worldwide press tour.
We’ve also obtained a complete list of every song featured in the first season’s musical score, as well as the first few tracks from The Rings of Power’s soundtrack. A new trailer has also been posted online, as if that weren’t enough. There is therefore much for you to catch up on.
You will be able to read about other things as well. Everything important about The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is listed below. Its release date, big cast, potential story points, trailers, and other details are all included. One may argue that this is the all-inclusive user handbook.
Before you continue, be aware that the plot and characters of The Rings of Power may be spoiled. However, we’ll let you know when we get to them so you can skip ahead if you want to avoid spoilers up front.
New Lord Of The Rings Storyline
This epic tale takes place before The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. It will transport viewers back to an era when great empires were established, kingdoms rose and fell, and improbable heroes were tested. The story follows familiar and new characters as evil returns to Middle-earth. Misty Mountains, Lindon, and Nmenor will leave lasting legacies.
Elijah Wood, who plays Frodo Baggins, says “more Silmarillion.” “The thing they’re working on is older than Lord of the Rings characters,” he told IndieWire. “Silmarillion-like. Second Age Middle Earth”
The series will “juggle 22 stars and many storylines, from dwarf mines to elven politics” 3,441 years before The Fellowship of the Ring. Tolkien’s Second Age. Summary is out.
Amazon Studios’ new series will tell Middle-great Earth’s legends. This epic story is set thousands of years before J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and will transport viewers to an era when great powers were built, kingdoms rose and fell, and improbable heroes were tested. Mix of known and new characters battle the return of evil to Middle-earth. Misty Mountains, Lindon, and Nmenor will leave lasting legacies.
We won’t see many original series characters because they weren’t around. Unknown Tolkien mythology. Sauron’s ascension and the Last Alliance of Elves and Men occur late in the Second Age, but much transpired before. Sauron, or Annatar in The Second Age, won’t debut in season one to generate intrigue.
Celebrimbor the ringmaker will also appear, implying the show will chronicle the forging of the Rings of Power. The show’s creators may opt to “chronicle the destruction of the ancient Man civilization from which Aragorn’s bloodline descended,” which would explain why Aragorn’s past was rumoured to be featured.
Most characters from the original trilogy were born in the Third Age (apart from various characters including Galadriel, Elrond and Gandalf, who were born or existed in spirit form as “Maiar” before the Second Age).
3,500 years of series speculation… Not yet, thank goodness. In October 2020, nudists were cast. Coupled with the series listing an intimacy coordinator, this has led to speculation that may include sex scenes, which may surprise Tolkien fans.
Other rumours say nudity will be modest and not sexualized, but connected to elves degenerating into orcs. An August 2021 snapshot generated fan speculation. The city resembles Tirion in Valinor, where Frodo, Bilbo, and Gandalf sail in Return of the King.
The two light-emitting trees in the horizon resemble the Two Trees of Valinor. Melkor and Ungoliant destroyed Laurelin and Telperion to create the sun and moon from their flower and fruit.
The Two Trees precede The First Age, so the Amazon show may include flashbacks or a prologue. The robed person may be one of the Valar who created and oversaw Middle Earth, hinting the series will explore its origins.
Initially, the series could only adapt events from The Lord of the Rings books and appendices. In July 2021, it was stated that the Tolkien Estate was pleased with the series’ progress and granted access to The Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales.
It’s the first time either novel has been licenced, but it’s unclear if the rights were gained in time for season one. Unknown which chapters have been licenced, although portions that reference Nmenor and Rings of Power seem probable given that Amazon owns the appendices.

Lord Of The Rings: The Ring Of Power Release Date
CONFIRMED: The first instalment of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will air on Friday, September 2, 2022.
Then, episodes will be made available each week on Amazon Prime Video. Despite a delay brought on by the coronavirus outbreak, production on the series started in February 2020 and ended on August 3, 2021.
Additionally, according to Amazon, once the first two episodes were shot, shooting was put on hold for four to five months to determine what was successful. A staggering $465 million is being spent on the first season of the show’s production, making it a significant risk for the streaming service.
Lord Of The Rings Future And Spinoffs
J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay plot a five-season series and know how it’ll conclude. Payne told Empire: “We know the finale’s final shot. Amazon got 50-hour show rights. They knew from the start this was a massive story with a distinct beginning, middle, and end. First-season events don’t pay off until season 5.”
A second season is in planning and will be filmed at Bray Film Studios and Bovingdon Airfield in Berkshire and Hertfordshire, UK, rather than New Zealand. When asked by Collider when season 2 would begin filming, the cast remained tight-lipped. A Time article announced season 2’s all-female directing lineup.
The other three seasons’ status is unknown. Amazon will decide on future seasons based on the first two’s reception.
Callum Greene, one of Amazon’s Lord of the Rings executive producers, got a first-look deal in March 2022. Could his future ventures involve The Rings of Power? It’s plausible, especially with Amazon Studios concluding its $8.5 billion deal to acquire MGM, which produced The Hobbit trilogy.
Swedish videogame and media business Embrace Group just bought the Lord of the Rings IP from Middle-earth Enterprises (per Deadline). We’ll update you when we learn how this will influence The Rings of Power and spin-offs.
