This first season will plunge viewers into the Second Age of Middle-Earth, at the time of the forging of the Rings of Power and the rise of the Dark Lord Sauron. These are events that will take place several thousand years before the stories of the “Hobbit” and “Lord of the Rings” sagas.

FEATURED STORIES

Prime Video will unveil a new episode every week. In all, eight episodes will make up the first season. The streaming platform is already talking about “several seasons.”

A billion dollars were invested in the filming of the first two seasons. For the moment, “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” is the most expensive series ever produced. JB
