Amazon Reveals More Details About Its Upcoming ‘Lord of the Rings’ Series, Including the Name

Amazon has revealed the official name of its anticipated Lord of the Rings series based on the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. The prequel series will be titled The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power and is set to be released September 2 on Prime Video.

“This is a title that we imagine could live on the spine of a book next to J.R.R. Tolkien’s other classics. The Rings of Power unites all the major stories of Middle-earth’s Second Age: the forging of the rings, the rise of the Dark Lord Sauron, the epic tale of Númenor, and the Last Alliance of Elves and Men,” said Showrunners J.D. Payne & Patrick McKay. “Until now, audiences have only seen on-screen the story of the One Ring – but before there was one, there were many… and we’re excited to share the epic story of them all.”
