THE LORD OF THE RINGS TV Series Gets A Premiere Date Along With A Breathtaking First Look Image

The first season of The Lord of the Rings TV series has wrapped shooting, and we now have a premiere date along with a stunning first-look image from the $500 million Amazon series. Check it out here...

The still-untitled Lord of the Rings TV series coming to Amazon has finally received a premiere date: Friday, September 2, 2022. That's one heck of a wait, especially as shooting on the first season actually wrapped today in New Zealand (there's clearly going to be a lot of post-production work on the show). 

However, this is a somewhat fitting debut date for the expensive series seeing as it will be nearly 84 years to the day The Hobbit was published: September 21, 1937. Episodes will be released weekly.

The show, adapted from J.R.R. Tolkien's iconic series of novels, is set to take place during the Second Age. That's thousands of years before the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and this story is set to follow an ensemble made up of established and new characters as they "confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth" (a.k.a. Sauron). 

We're not expecting to see too many familiar characters in Amazon's The Lord of the Rings, but Morfydd Clark is playing a younger version of Galadriel, so there will be at least a few ties to the books and movies. We expect Elrond to appear too, but seeing Sauron in his prime is perhaps most exciting for fans.

The series boasts a massive ensemble, while J.D. Payne & Patrick McKay are set to serve as showrunners.

A first look image has also been revealed, but we've not been given any context about that unknown character or what this tease means for the direction The Lord of the Rings is heading. 

It sure looks pretty, though, eh?
