The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is an Amazon Prime Video fantasy streaming television series created by J. D. Payne and Patrick McKay.
The series is based on J. R. R. Tolkien’s novel The Lord of the Rings and its appendices and is set in the Second Age of Middle-earth, thousands of years before Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
Amazon Studios is producing it in collaboration with New Line Cinema and in consultation with the Tolkien Estate.
When Will Season 2 of Rings of Power Come Out?
Five seasons are planned in total, with season 2 arriving sooner rather than later—possibly even in 2023.
According to Salke, the sequel is already in the works. “We’re going to get that out there as soon as we can,” she told Variety.
“We want the shortest time possible between seasons, but we also want to keep the bar as high as possible.” So whatever it takes.
However, there has been some urgency in moving quickly, which is why these guys have been writing throughout their hiatus. We’re making good time.”
Will Rings of Power Have a Season 2?
Yes, and three more after that. “We’re building infrastructure for five seasons,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, in an interview with Variety.
We’re constructing a small town. We were always going to spend whatever it took to get it right.”
What Will Season 2 Be About?
We don’t know much about next season’s plot yet, but Galadriel will almost certainly still be reeling from her crush gone wrong, bless her. “Even knowing that Sauron was partially involved in the science behind the making of the rings, we see [Galadriel] give the go-ahead to make the rings anyway,” Payne told Esquire in an October 2022 interview.
She must also accept responsibility: ‘I empowered the Dark Lord.’ On a raft, I saved his life. I was a witness to him emerging from obscurity to command an army.’
That’s a lot to deal with and be accountable for. I believe she will have to pick up those threads and see how her decisions affect her various relationships.”
As a result, we can expect some conflict between Galadriel and Elrond, the latter of whom appeared to learn of Halbrand’s true identity from a genealogy scroll he picked up in the final moments of season 1. “I think there’s a bit of conflict at that moment,” writer Gennifer Hutchinson told Polygon. “She’s made a significant request of him. That was something we really wanted. ‘This is the real test; you said you’d believe me.’ We wanted to make certain that happened.”
Who Will Be in the Cast?
Most of the main cast is expected to return, including Morfydd Clark, Robert Aramayo, Owain Arthur, Nazanin Boniadi, Ismael Cruz Córdova, Charlie Vickers, Markella Kavenagh, Daniel Weyman, Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Sophia Nomvete, and more.
