Amazon Studios officially announced the title of the upcoming Lord of the Rings television series: “The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power“.
The series will premiere on September 2, 2022 on Prime Video.
The epic fantasy show takes place during the Second Age of Middle-earth history, a relatively unexplored part of the J.R.R. Tolkien, mainly described in the appendices to his novel. The action of the series takes place thousands of years before the events described in Peter Jackson’s film trilogy “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit”.
The creators of the series stated the following:
So far, viewers have only seen the story of one ring on screen – but before there was one, there were many… and we’re excited to share the epic story of them all.
