Based on the characters and world built by JRR Tolkein, The Rings Of Power is intended to be a 50-hour, five-season series that will take place during the Second Age of Middle-earth, thousands of years before the events of Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Series director J.A. Bayona has teased that the prequel series is so expansive that it cannot even be considered television. “The Rings Of Power is not television,” Bayona said. “It’s a new form we’re creating here.”
The sweeping, big-budget fantasy series began filming in Feb. 2020 but paused for several months before resuming in September that same year. Season 1 wrapped filming in early August 2021, with the series moving from New Zealand to the UK for filming on Season 2. The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power will premiere on Prime Video on Sept. 2, 2022.
