Inspired by the universe created by J. R. R. TolkienThe Rings of Power is already the series with the most visual effects ever made, above Peter Jackson’s trilogy, and in fact has become the most expensive series in history, investing 58 million dollars per episode. The plot takes viewers on an epic journey through the Second Age of Middle-earth, in a period of relative peace where familiar and new characters will have to face the resurgence of evil in Middle-earth.

We are set thousands of years before the events of The Hobbit and the films of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, dealing with events such as the forging of the Rings of Power, the birth of the Dark Lord, the history of the island kingdom of Númenor, and the last alliance between Elves and Men. In the last episode of the first seasonone of the great unknowns was finally discovered: the identity of Sauron, who has the ability to shapeshift in the Second Age and was in plain sight throughout the episodes, disguised as a mortal man.

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Season 2 Is Coming Summer to Prime Video

Therefore, the second season of the series will see the return and rise of Tolkien’s greatest villain, Sauron, who threatens to cover the world in darkness and subject all the peoples of Middle-earth to his will. According to Amazon Prime Video’s own description, in this second installment we will see a Galadriel without an army of her own or allies, where the characters will be challenged to find their place in the world, increasingly on the brink of disaster, and an alliance of elves, dwarves, orcs, men, hairy and wizards. In addition, the appearance of Círdan, one of the oldest elves, has been confirmed.

Almost two years after starting filming in the United Kingdom, which began in October 2022 and ended in June last year, the new installment of The Rings of Power will be available on Prime Video. Next Thursday, August 29, don’t make plans, because you will probably be too entertained devouring the eight episodes that this second season brings, with an approximate duration of 70 minutes each.

On the review website Rotten Tomatoes, the case of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is really curious. While the general audience is really disappointed with the first season of the series, giving a dismal 38% of positive ratings, experts in the field think the opposite, with 82% acceptance by professional critics. Since there is no unanimity of opinion, the only way to know which team you are on is to see it, of course.
