The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power brings famous legends from the Second Age of Middle-earth history to the screen for the first time. This epic drama takes place thousands of years before the events of The Hobbit and J.R.R Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, and will take viewers into an Age where great powers were forged, Kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, heroes unlikely have been tested, hopes have been woven by the finest threads, and one of the greatest villains to ever emerge from Tolkien’s pen threatens to blanket the World in Darkness. Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an array of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the much-feared resurgence of evil in Middle-earth. From the darkest and deepest valleys of the Misty Mountains to the majestic forests of Lindon, to the breathtaking landscapes of the Kingdom of Númenor, to the furthest reaches of the map, these Kingdoms and characters will forge a legacy that will last long after they are gone.

The first season of Rings of Power was an unprecedented success, watched by over 100 million people worldwide, with over 24 billion minutes streamed. The highly anticipated series drew more than 25 million global viewers on its first day, marking the biggest debut in Prime Video history, and also debuted as the No. 1 show overall on Nielsen’s streaming rankings on its launch weekend. The series also broke all previous Prime Video records and generated more Prime subscriptions worldwide during its launch window than any other previous content. Additionally, The Rings of Power is the top original series in all regions – North America, Europe, APAC, LATAM, and the rest of the world.

The second season of the series is produced by showrunners and executive producers J.D. Payne & Patrick McKay, who are joined by executive producers Lindsey Weber, Callum Greene, Justin Doble, Jason Cahill, and Gennifer Hutchison, along with co-executive producers Charlotte Brandstrom, producers Kate Hazell and Helen Shang, and co-producers producers Andrew Lee, Matthew Penry-Davey and Clare Buxton.
