For now, the premise of the new series has not been revealed. The only thing we know is that the show will serve as a prequel set in the Second Age of Middle-earth, which is thousands of years before Bilbo Baggins decided to leave the Shire for an adventure.

The Lord of the Rings series has not yet been given an official title nor a release date. However, Season 1 is already expected to consist of eight episodes and could premiere on amazon Prime in early 2021. Stay tuned for updates on this story.
