Amazon has finally announced the release date for its The Lord of the Rings series, but don’t rush to secure the best spot in your living room yet. It will premiere on Prime Video on September 2nd, 2022, with new episodes dropping every week following the launch.
Currently, filming on the series is complete. As of February 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has interrupted the production process.
There is a period of thousands of years between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. During the Second Age of Middle-earth, both old and new characters will have to fight against a resurgent evil.
The first official image of the show was also revealed along with the release date on Amazon. The image shows a figure looking at a cityscape with white buildings and distant trees whose outlines can be seen. Since the trailer has not been released yet, the internet will be analyzing every pixel of the image for hints.
It was already announced that season two would be released before the series began filming. There is no doubt that this story will be further developed in upcoming episodes, no matter what happens in these initial episodes.
