What’s coming to Amazon Prime Video in October 2022?
Shows continuing from September
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power — What will likely be the most expensive TV series of all time—with a budget reportedly twice that for the entire LOTR film trilogy, though it does come with free two-day shipping—finally makes its debut after years of production. Filmed in New Zealand like Peter Jackson’s movies, prequel series The Rings of Power is not directly adapted from J.R.R. Tolkien’s books but instead depicts a brand new story set in the same world but taking place in the “Second Age,” several millennia prior to the events of The Hobbit during a time in which the rings of power were forged by Sauron.
