Peter Jackson’s most memorable work, The Lord Of The Rings, is set to come back as TV series to the audience. When the leading companies like HBO, Amazon, and Netflix were talking for acquiring the rights for the epic series, Amazon got the luckiest opportunity to recreate J.R.R. Tolkien’s piece of work on the small screen. They signed a $250m contract with a publisher. Harper Collins, New Line Cinema and the author’s estate, for producing a multi-season show for television. When will the show be released, who all will be the part of this, we will find out.
What’s the release date??
According to various reports, a release on December 2021 is planned. However, there are no official announcements regarding the release date of the TV series. Filming already started in early 2020. But the shooting was stopped unfortunately due to the issues regarding the COVID 19 pandemic. Since the expected date is still far away, we can hope that the present problems of the pandemic outbreak won’t affect the scheduled release date of the TV series.
Who is in the cast??
After months of anxious waiting, Amazon revealed its main cast. Nazanin Boniadi, Owain Arthur, and Robert Aramayo will be in the leading roles.

He also added that this time he would like to see someone else taking on the Tolkien world.
