The Amazon Prime streaming service announced to the world today that filming for the first season of The Lord of the Rings series was finally completed on August 2nd, and everyone is already expecting it to be one of the platform’s best shows. The cast and crew have spent months in New Zealand on set filming for the highly anticipated series, and it’s officially been confirmed that we can see the final result in a little while.
The exciting epic fantasy show will make its official debut on Amazon Prime on September 2nd, 2022, and it’s set to be one of the best shows on the streaming service. Yes though, you did read that right. It’s going to take some more time for sure. Patient fans of the franchise will have to wait it out some more as we won’t be getting any Lord of the Rings content from the streaming service until another year.
Well, what can we expect from a show that will definitely need lots of special effects and CGI? While filming may have taken a while, we can expect that the large bulk of this time will go to post-production on the project. However, we trust that good things come to those who wait, and that the long duration planned for post-production just means we’re going to have a fantasy show that is as epic, glorious, and breathtaking as ever.
What do we know so far?
The Lord of the Rings TV series is set to be one of the best shows on the Amazon Prime streaming service, but what do we really know about it so far? Well, there’s not too much info that has been revealed yet, as we don’t yet know what it will be about nor do we even know the real title of the show, but we are aware that the show will take place in the so-called “Second Age” of the franchise.
The “Second Age” refers to the thousands of years before the events from The Lord of the Rings series and The Hobbit book. The TV show will follow a group of characters that will include both new and old characters from the film franchise, as they face the long-feared return of evil on Middle-earth.
Cast members include Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Robert Aramayo, Owain Arthur, Maxim Baldry, Nazanin Boniadi, Morfydd Clark, Ismael Cruz Córdova, Charles Edwards, Trystan Gravelle, Sir Lenny Henry, Ema Horvath, Markella Kavenagh, Joseph Mawle, Tyroe Muhafidin, Sophia Nomvete, Lloyd Owen, Megan Richards, Dylan Smith, Charlie Vickers, Leon Wadham, Benjamin Walker, Daniel Weyman, and Sara Zwangobani.
Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios said: “I can’t express enough just how excited we all are to take our global audience on a new and epic journey through Middle-earth! Our talented producers, cast, creative, and production teams have worked tirelessly in New Zealand to bring this untold and awe-inspiring vision to life”.
Showrunners and executive producers of the highly anticipated TV series J.D. Payne & Patrick McKay shared: “As Bilbo says, ‘Now I think I am quite ready to go on another journey.’ Living and breathing Middle-earth these many months has been the adventure of a lifetime. We cannot wait for fans to have the chance to do so as well”.
