To the delight of Frodo and Sam fans everywhere, a new series “The Lord of the Rings” will be released on Amazon Prime Video soon. Inspired by the novel The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien, the new show will come before the franchise’s first book, The Fellowship of the Ring, according to a press release.
To revive the series, Entertainment Weekly reports that Amazon spent $ 500 million on the project and the company is required to produce at least five seasons. The cast also played in New Zealand, where the Oscar-winning actor “The Lord of the Rings” was filmed.
What is the release date for the TV show “The Lord of the Rings” on Amazon?
So far, Amazon has not set a release date. However, in the January 14 press release, we know that production of the upcoming show is scheduled to start in February this year (note: previous editions stated that filming began in early December). According to IndieWire.com, fans shouldn’t expect to see the series until the end of 2021 or any time in 2022. If we hear any other updates, we will definitely update this post as soon as possible.
What is Lord of the Rings show About??
The OneRing.Net fan site claims to have an “official” recap of events for the series:
Before the events of J.R.R, this epic drama takes place thousands of years. The Lord of the Rings will bring the viewers back to a time when great power was forged, and kingdoms raised to glory. And falling into ruin, heroes most likely untested, hopes hung by the best threads and most of the great villains, ever escape from Tolkien’s pen, threatening to cover the entire world in darkness.

As to who was “the biggest criminal to ever break out of Tolkien’s stable,” many sites agree that it was Sauron. Based on the outline above, it looks like fans will take a closer look when Sauron comes to power and fakes a ring to rule it all.
