The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is led by showrunners J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay. It takes place thousands of years before the events of The Lord of the Rings films and unites all the major stories of Middle-earth’s Second Age: the forging of the rings, the rise of the Dark Lord Sauron, the epic tale of Númenor, and the Last Alliance of Elves and Men.

The Rings of Power will feature more than one ring and a large cast including Robert Aramayo, Markella Kavenagh, Morfydd Clark, Joseph Mawle, Owain Arthur, Nazanin Boniadi, Tom Budge, Ismael Cruz Córdova, Ema Horvath, Tyroe Muhafidin, Sophia Nomvete, Megan Richards, Dylan Smith, Charlie Vicker, Daniel Weyman and more.

Aside from The Rings of Power, The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim is currently in the works with New Line and Warner Bros. Animation. With rights to the famous IP up for bidding, fans can likely look forward to more The Lord of the Rings content in the coming years.

The Prime Video series debuts on 2 September 2022.
