The series will debut on Amazon Prime Video on September 2 (Friday), 2022. It will be aired across 240 territories globally.
Previously, Amazon Studios chief Jennifer Salke told The Hollywood Reporter that they were trying to get the show air by 2021. Still, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the production was delayed.
Executive producers J.D. Payne & Patrick McKay commented, “As Bilbo says, ‘Now I think I am quite ready to go on another journey. Living and breathing Middle-earth these many months has been the adventure of a lifetime. We cannot wait for fans to have the chance to do so as well.”
Jennifer Salke added, “I can’t express enough just how excited we all are to take our global audience on a new and epic journey through Middle-earth! Our talented producers, cast, creative, and production teams have worked tirelessly in New Zealand to bring this untold and awe-inspiring vision to life.”
The first look picture is from the show’s first episode, but the character or actor has not been identified yet.
Meet the team behind the show:
The Hollywood Reporter had previously confirmed that Amazon is spending a whopping $465 million just for the first season of this show, while it has already signed up for multiple seasons.
The show is based on the novel The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien. However, it is ‘set in the Second Age of Middle-earth before the events of the Lord of the Rings novel and films.’
