Plot Synopsis

THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RINGS OF POWER is an epic drama series set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings" books, taking viewers 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 one of the greatest villains 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 reemergence 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 Numenor, to the farthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone. The eight-episode first season of THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RINGS OF POWER debuted with two episodes on Thursday, September 1, 2022 at 9pm ET/6pm PT (and simultaneously around the world) on Prime Video. A new episode dropped each Friday at 12:01am ET, beginning September 9 through October 14.
On Friday, October 14, 2022, Prime Video released "Alloyed," the 72-minute Season 1 finale of THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RINGS OF POWER, where new alliances are forged.

Production has already begun on Season 2 of THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RINGS OF POWER.
