Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power has Begun Production for the 2nd Season
Published 1 year ago
The first season of The Rings of Power isn’t even over yet, but Amazon is already pushing forward with the second season.
According to THR, production for Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Season Two has already begun in the UK. Originally, the series had shot in New Zealand (the same location as Peter Jackson’s LOTR films), but it’s said that the series has moved to the UK, which was said to be the more economical decision.
As of now, the first season has about two episodes left, and has been having a strong run so far. Admittedly, Rings of Power has not been able to dominate the internet news feed like House of the Dragon has, but I’m pretty sure more attention will come to it when the series is completed, and when House of the Dragon finishes its run.
While there are a lot of harsh haters online, the fans who’ve actually watched the show have been praising the series’ attention to detail and the quality of production. Sure, the show has taken its own creative liberties, but I think the characters are all pretty likeable—especially Galadriel, who is just a fierce heroine brought to life by Morfydd Clark.
This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and 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.
