Are you as excited as we are for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power? There’s only one day left to go, and what better way to kick off the weekend than with the first episode? Here’s everything you need to know about the new series set in one of the most beloved fantasy universes. Plus, if you can’t get enough of the franchise or need something to do while you wait for new episodes - we’ll also take a look at the Lord of the Rings games on PLITCH.


The most important info about The Rings of Power

The first season is likely going to have eight episodes. As of today, Amazon hasn’t confirmed anything about the number of episodes yet. Did you know that five seasons are planned?! Now we’re even more excited. Also, every season is going to deal with another Middle Earth event and will have a different title.

In case you haven’t seen the trailer for The Rings of Power yet, you can watch it here:


What are the setting and plot of the series?

Since The Rings of Power is a prequel series, it will cover the Second Age of Middle Earth’s history and is thus set before the events of The Lord of Rings and The Hobbit. Back then, the world is peaceful, but this calmness feels kind of uneasy. Tolkien’s darkest villain is about to rise – we’re talking about Sauron, of course.

This has an impact on everyone in Middle Earth, from humans to elves. We’ll hopefully also see some new territories since the series is meant to explore the farthest corners of Middle Earth to showcase a lot of wars and character journeys.

We could look even more into the series but we feel like it’s better to experience it tomorrow without knowing a whole lot about it. Since it’s a prequel, you could even give it a go if you haven’t seen the original movies yet. Maybe it will motivate you to finally watch them!
