The team behind Amazon Prime Video’s The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power has officially started production on Season 2!
Season 2 of the show is shooting at Bray Studios, which is outside of London. Additional filming will take place in New Zealand, which is where the whole first season was shot.
The Rings of Power is approaching its Season 1 finale, and it’s going to be fascinating to see how this first chapter of the story will come to a conclusion.
It was also announced that the character Círdan will be introduced in Season 2. Círdan is one of the highest and most noble of the Sindar, Lord of the Falathrim during the First Age, and Master of the Grey Havens through the Second, Third, and Fourth Age. He is the oldest living Elf in Middle-earth. He was also gifted Narya, one of the Three Rings, the Ring of Fire, by Celebrimbor until he surrendered it to Gandalf.
The series is based on the appendices from J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of Rings books and the story is set in the Second Age of Middle-Earth, “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.”
