Amazon to premiere ‘Lord of the Rings’ series in 2022

Amazon, a multinational technology company which focuses on e-commerce, cloud computing, digital streaming, and artificial intelligence has announced that its big-budget “The Lord of The Rings” series will premiere worldwide in September 2022.

Speaking about the new series, the Head of Amazon Studios said: “I can’t express enough just how excited we all are to take our global audience on a new and epic journey through Middle-earth! Our talented producers, cast, creative, and production teams have worked tirelessly in New Zealand to bring this untold and awe-inspiring vision to life.”

The multinational technology company which obtained the television rights to the cult classic in 2017 for an estimated $250 million expressed hopes that the new series will rival the success of “Game of Thrones.”

According to Amazon, filming was completed on the first season of the show on Aug. 2 in New Zealand and will be available on September 2, 2022 with new episodes released on a weekly basis.

With the multi-season adaptation of Tolkien’s literary work already turned into a successful film franchise in the early 2000s, Amazon hopes to score points for its streaming platform Amazon Prime Video against competitors such as Netflix and Disney Plus.
