Amazon's 'Lord of the Rings' Has Already Been Greenlit for Season 2 Ahead of Series Premiere

By

Another battle for Middle-Earth is upon us…

Amazon Studios is currently in pre-production for developing a Lord of the Rings television series. Though the show will be based in writer J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-Earth, preceding The Fellowship of the Ring, the series will explore new storylines, as Tolkien’s novels are set in four different ages. The Lord of the Rings trilogy was set in The Third Age, and it has been announced by Amazon (via Twitter) that the TV show will take place in The Second Age.

It’s also important to note that The Second Age is when the iconic One Ring was forged by Sauron at Mount Doom. So, fans shouldn’t be surprised if the Dark Lord makes an appearance in the new TV series. Unfortunately, fans may have to wait a few more years to watch the first episode of the highly anticipated show. Here’s what we know about Amazon’s Lord of the Rings, including the release date, cast, and Season 2.
