Lord of the Rings TV Series is going to be one of the biggest and grandest epic-scale drama produced by Amazon for its streaming service Amazon Prime Video. While the budget for the first episode of season 1 is said to be over a billion dollars, everything on the show is kept a secret. But Amazon recently revealed that they have renewed Lord of the Rings for a second season already.

The show is being filmed on such a high scale that it will be smart of the makers to shoot multiple seasons at the same time so that they can use the same set pieces and also use the actors’ schedule properly. Here is everything we know about the release date, cast, and plot of ‘Lord of the Rings’ Season 2 by Amazon prime video.
Lord Of The Rings Season 2 Early Renewal
Amazon Studios’ head Jennifer Salke revealed that production for Lord of the Rings will start from the next year. It doesn’t mean that we will see the release of the show very soon as it takes so much time for such projects to come out. Even the first season of Lord of the Rings show is said to be come out in 2021 on Amazon prime video.

The decision to renew LOTR for the second season so early came because the show was having a hiatus of four months after the first two episodes were finished by J.A. Bayona. The gap can be used by the writers to work on the scripts for the next chapter of Lord of the Rings TV series. J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay will be finishing the storyline for Amazon’s Lord of the Rings season 2.
Lord Of The Rings Season 2 Details
Lord of the Rings TV show is said to be set in the Tolkien Universe millennia before the time of ‘The Fellowship of the Ring’ but won’t feature the events of ‘The Silmarillion’ and even the Third Age. While the first season of Lord of the Rings will cover the Second Age, season 2 will take the story forward after that and it could have a total of five seasons as per the sources.
The confirmed list of cast members for Lord of the Rings season 1 and 2 included Markella Kavenaghl, Will Poulter, Maxim Baldry, and Joseph Mawle. Lord of the Rings season could release in late 2021 or early 2022 on Amazon prime video.
