The Lord Of The Rings is currently one of the most loved amazon prime series that fans are excited to see in 2021. However, we have some bad news for you, The Lord of the Rings is not going to come to Amazon Prime in December 2021 and you may have to wait a little longer for it.

There were many shows from Amazon Prime fans who were expecting to watch this December, but disappointing all the fans, amazon finally announced that the series won’t be coming in December 2021. This news came out when our sources check the list of releases for December 2021 and Lord of The Rings was not available there in the list of arrivals. Although it was not expected still fans were hoping for a Christmas miracle but unfortunately, we are not getting one.

Lord of the Rings premiere date

Amazon has already shared its final premiere date release for the Lord of the Rings series and we have bad news for you. There is a long and long wait in the hands of fans until the series gets to our streaming screen.

According to the reports the Lord of The Rings series will be arriving on 2nd September 2022, Friday which is quite far away from the present date. We know it’s quite disappointing to know that the series won’t be coming this year but it’s also very much understandable. you must be wondering why it’s because the series will go into the post-production phase after the shooting gets done and a show like this is going to take a long time as there is so much to do in it.

But with the September 2022 release date, we at least have a little hope in the end that the series will arrive sometime next year. Unlike other series like Maisel Season 4, The Boys season 3 about which we don’t have any idea when they will arrive at Amazon Prime Video.

In addition to this, the reports we got from our sources say that the Lord of the Rings is going to follow a weekly episode release format. That’s because this format has been quite successful for other amazon series. this format also keeps the viewers attached to the series and lets them appreciate the show’s hard work put into each episode.

Amazon Prime Lord of the Rings cast

The lead character in Amazon’s Lord of the Rings will be played by Bandersnatch star Will Poulter.  There were also reports that said Poulter had been forced to withdraw his character because of the scheduling conflict.

Will Poulter also recently confirmed to a media portal that he withdrew his role from the project because of the scheduling conflict. He said:  “I have the utmost respect for everyone involved in that project,” he said. “And I have no doubt it’s going to be incredible.”

Now coming to other characters, Years and Years star Maxim Baldry has also been added to the cast of Lord of the Rings. Joseph Mawle will also be one of the members of the series and will play the role of the main antagonist in the series. Nazanin Boniadi is also another star that is confirmed for the series. There are many other stars like Ismael Cruz Cordova who is best known for his role in Ray Donovan has also been assigned a significant role in the series.

Other megastars included in the cast of Lord of the Rings include Ema Horvath (Don’t Look Deeper), Megan Richards (Wanderlust), Dylan Smith (Maze Runner), Charlie Vickers (Medici), Daniel Weyman (Silent Witness), and screen newcomers Tyrone Muhafidin and Sophia Nomvete.

How many seasons of Amazon’s Lord of the Rings will there be

The moment Amazon signed the rights for Lord of the Rings, they made a deal for a multi-season commitment and also included a spin-off series as well. However, each season will require approval from the amazon executives. According to the reports, the second season of the series has already started filming.

Boss of Amazon Studios even said:

“The number is a sexy headline or a crazy headline that’s fun to click on, but that is really building the infrastructure of what will sustain the whole series.”

Salke also added that “a giant, global audience needs to show up to it as appointment television,” but it is clear that Amazon has the show’s future in mind – and with that kind of investment the streamer is clearly betting on the show lasting several seasons at the very least.

Amazon Prime Lord of the Rings series filming location

According to the confirmation from Amazon Studios, the series will start its shooting once again in Middle-Earth is in the environs of New Zealand. Earlier it was also a backdrop for Peter Jackson’s award-winning trilogy.

JD Payne and Patrick in their statement said:

“As we searched for the location in which we could bring to life the primordial beauty of the Second Age of Middle-earth, we knew we needed to find somewhere majestic, with pristine coasts, forests, and mountains, that also is home to world-class sets, studios, and highly skilled and experienced craftspeople and other staff.

“And we’re happy that we are now able to officially confirm New Zealand as our home for our series based on stories from J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings.

“We are grateful to the people and the government of New Zealand and especially Auckland for supporting us during this pre-production phase. The abundant measure of Kiwi hospitality with which they have welcomed us has already made us feel right at home, and we are looking forward to deepening our partnership in the years to come.”

However, the season 2 of The Lord of the Rings will not be filmed in New Zealand and it will be filmed in the UK. According to Amazon Studios TV head, the principal photography of the series will begin at the British shores and will then move to multiple outlets of the UK.
