Amazon share stunning first-look image and premiere date for The Lord Of The Rings TV series
Amazon have released the absolutely stunning first-look image at their huge The Lord Of The Rings TV series, which is set to arrive next year.
With filming of the first season wrapped in New Zealand on August 2, Amazon have shared that it’ll premiere in just over a year’s time on September 2, 2022, with new episodes dropping weekly.
And our first-look image gives a glimpse at what we can expect from episode one, with the reported £335m budget for the entire series clearly being put to good use in terms of the visuals…
“The journey begins September 2, 2022 with the premiere of our original The Lord of the Rings series on Prime Video,” confirms Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios. “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.”
“As Bilbo says, ‘Now I think I am quite ready to go on another journey,’” add showrunners and executive producers J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay. “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.”
