Heres the Long-Awaited Description for Amazons Lord of the Rings TV Series

Amazon has finally revealed the full description for its upcoming The Lord of the Rings TV series, a show set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkiens The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Heres the synopsis for the eight-episode fantasy series, which is currently filming in New Zealand and has already been renewed for a second season, courtesy of Amazon: Amazon Studios forthcoming series brings to screens for the very first time the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earths history. This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkiens The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and will take viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkiens pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness. Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth. From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains, to the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Nmenor, to the furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.
