What does the Lord of the Rings series talk about?
The unnamed “Lord of the Rings” series took place in the legendary second era in the history of Middle-earth. This means that it happened thousands of years before the events of JRR Tolkien’s famous “The Hobbit” and “Lord of the Rings” novels.
According to Amazon, the series “will bring viewers back to an era where power is forged, kingdoms prosper and decay, impossible heroes are tested, hope is suspended by the finest thread, and the greatest villain of all time. From Trust The threat in Erkin’s pen will cover the entire world in the dark.”

As with the previous outing, a group of characters (some familiar characters) will work together to fight the growing evil. The locations of the story include the Misty Mountains, the Elven Capital Linton, and the island nation of Numenor.
Although the first season was filmed in New Zealand earlier this month, Amazon revealed little other information about the plot or characters of the show.
When and where can I watch it?

The first episode will be broadcast on September 2, 2022, just over a year from now.
We might expect to launch an episode every week, in line with other Amazon original shows, but Amazon can choose a different route between now and then.
There is no word on when the upcoming season will launch.
Who is involved?
JD Payne and Patrick McKay served as presenters and executive producers. The choice of Payne and McKay attracted some people’s attention. Before the “Lord of the Rings” series, the two had almost no known movie or TV titles.
Their IMDB page lists the two screenwriters as unsigned writers in JJ Abrams’ Star Trek: Beyond. But beyond that, there is actually nothing.According to reports, Abrams One of several High-profile industry figures recommended the two for this job.
Along with Payne and McKay, co-producer Helen Shang is responsible for writing. The directors are executive producer JA Bayona, co-executive producers Wayne Che Yip and Charlotte Brändström.
The cast of “Lord of the Rings” is huge, even though Amazon is stingy with character names. Robert Alamayo plays a young hero named Baldo. Murphy Clark plays the young Galadriel. Simon Merrells played a character named “Trevin”.
The confirmed actors include:
- Robert Alamayo

Will there be more seasons?
The current plan is for the five seasons of the Lord of the Rings series. In general, the series is expected to eventually cost 1 billion U.S. dollars, making it the most expensive series in history.
Amazon has officially ordered the second season.The second season will transfer production from New Zealand to the UK
Amazon Studios is looking to expand its production in the UK, so it makes sense to locate its main tent series there. Nevertheless, this is a strange and undoubtedly costly move, although it may be affected by some long-term financial benefit.
So far, Amazon has not set a date for the second season to start production or release on its streaming site.
Does this part belong to the same series as the existing movie?
It seems that the “Lord of the Rings” series will be a prequel to Tolkien’s novels, not a Peter Jackson movie.
This makes sense, because Jackson doesn’t seem to be involved in any way. However, it is not 100% clear what transactions Amazon may have or is willing to make to link this series to existing movies.
If they are connected, Amazon will definitely mention so many now. The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies are huge, and they make a lot of money. Existing brands may be the reason why Amazon has invested a lot of money in new shows. So, although we can’t make any promises, don’t expect Elijah Wood or Ian McLean to show up.
If the new series is related to Peter Jackson’s movies, Amazon might say something now.
Nevertheless, since the first season was shot in New Zealand and the images of the early series look very familiar, if the audience wants to treat the Lord of the Rings series as prequels, not just books, but also for established film franchise right. After all, this all happened thousands of years ago. It may not be Canon, but you do you.
What to look forward to in the “Lord of the Rings” series
The Lord of the Rings series is touted as the most expensive TV series ever, so there is a lot to live up to.
In 2017, Amazon has won a bidding war Compete with Netflix for the TV copyright of “Lord of the Rings”. The company spent $250 million on this, which has made it a very expensive show. the most important is, Budget for the first quarter Set at 465 million U.S. dollars. Each episode exceeds 58 million U.S. dollars.
(If you want to compare, the budget for each episode of the final season of HBO Game of Thrones is $15 million.)
With so much money, the performance is best!
Despite all the rumors in the years since the announcement, we have little to continue. The series is not about young Aragon as previously thought. Patton Oswalt will not voice the young Gollum. This will not be a remake of Peter Jackson’s trilogy. It will not be a prequel to an existing movie, but a new interpretation of Tolkien’s work.
We do know who is inside, and it is likely to be as eye-catching as its predecessors.
This is everything we know and some things we want to know about the Lord of the Rings series on Amazon.
