Is ‘Lord Of The Rings’ Getting A TV Series? See Latest Updates

There is some good news for the fanbase of LOTR who have been hungry for a long time for new adventures; Legendary book series by J. R. R. Tolkien ‘The Lord of the Rings’ is adapted into a TV series by Amazon!

The series developed by D. Payne and Patrick McKay for Amazan Prime Video, was first announced in early 2018, just after Amazon bought the TV rights for the series for $250 million. At that time, the streaming platform stated that there would be a five-season production, and they would create the most expensive series ever with a budget of US$100 – 150 million per season.

The same year, after the cast members were announced, filming for ‘Lord of the Rings‘ series, which focuses on the Second Age of Middle-earth, began back in February in New Zealand. However, in March, the production was halted due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Fortunately, in September, filming resumed.

What’s the release date of the ‘Lord of the Rings’ series?

According to statements by showrunners, the series produced by Amazon Studios, Tolkien Estate and Trust, HarperCollins, and New Line Cinema, will be released through eight-episode. Even though there is no exact date for release, it was announced that ‘Lord of the Rings’ first season would premiere on Prime Video in late 2021. As for the second season has already ordered.

Will ‘Gandalf’ be in the ‘Lord of the Rings’ TV series?

As we mentioned before, the Amazon series is set in the Second Age of Middle-earth; it means it will center on the events before films and novels. So, it is not possible that there will be a Gandalf’s presence at least in the first seasons.

We may not see ‘Gandalf’ in the series, however, we will meet new characters this year. Back in December, Amazon revealed the cast; according to the announcement, in the series Robert Aramayo, Owain Arthur, Nazanin Boniadi Morfydd Clark, Ismael Cruz Córdova, Ema Horvath, Markella Kavenagh, Joseph Mawle, Tyroe Muhafidin, Sophia Nomvete, Megan Richards and Dylan Smith will appear.
