The Lord of the Rings series is coming soon to Amazon, and fans of the franchise had some good news this week. Amazon has decided to renew the series for a second season before production on season one has even completed.
Jennifer Salke announced the renewal during a party for Amazon held on Sunday night. The writers were immediately called back to the writer’s room to work on scripts for season two.
Per Deadline, the plan is for the cast and crew is to take a break from filming season one after two episodes are filmed and return in a few months. This will give the writers enough time to create scripts for season two. When the cast returns, production could possibly film episodes for both seasons.
The new Lord of the Rings will focus on storylines that took place before J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring.
A premiere date for The Lord of the Rings has not yet been set by Amazon.
