About The Show
The show is a five-season project being developed by showrunners J. D. Payne and Patrick McKay for Amazon Studios. Amazon bought the television rights to The Lord of The Rings in 2017 and is going to invest $1 billion in producing the show, making it the most expensive TV series ever made.
The official synopsis of the show reads, “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings Of Power will take viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness.”
“Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth.”
“From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains, to the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor, to the furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone,” the synopsis further read.
