Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings Season 2 to film in UK

The first season of Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings series recently finished principal photography, and the studio shared a breathtaking screenshot featuring Middle-earth and what looks to be the Two Trees of Valinor. The series is set in the Second Age, but if the ancient trees are there, this may very well be a flashback, or maybe a prologue that sets up the series. Today, Amazon Studios’ has a new announcement for its second season where it will be filmed in the U.K.

Pre-production is scheduled for early 2022, and this will move the series from New Zealand to the U.K. With many of Amazon Studios’ major series being filmed in the U.K., this will expand on its many productions on the island.

Post-production for Season One will still be held in New Zealand all the way until June 2022, and Season Two pre-pre-production will commence in the U.K. concurrently.

The untitled The Lord of the Rings series on Prime Video will premiere on Friday, September 2, 2022.

About Amazon Studios’ The Lord of the Rings

The new epic drama brings to screens for the very first time J.R.R. Tolkien’s fabled Second Age of Middle-earth’s history. Beginning in a time of relative peace, thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings books, 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.

The series is led by showrunners and executive producers J.D. Payne & Patrick McKay. They are joined by executive producers Lindsey Weber, Callum Greene, J.A. Bayona, Belén Atienza, Justin Doble, Jason Cahill, Gennifer Hutchison, Bruce Richmond, and Sharon Tal Yguado. Wayne Che Yip is co-executive producer and directs along with J.A. Bayona and Charlotte Brändström. Christopher Newman is a producer and Ron Ames is a co-producer.
