Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power season 1 schedule revealed

Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power season 1

Leading up to the big premiere of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, Amazon has finally offered some clarity on one big question: How the episodes are going to be rolled out.

For a good while now, there has been legitimate confusion as to whether we were getting all of these installments at once, or if we were looking at one per week or something in that vein. Well, we finally have some more clarity and have plenty of reasons to be thankful for it.

So where do we start things off here? Well, the show is going to launch on September 1 in America (or September 2 in some territories) at 9:00 p.m. Eastern (6:00 p.m. Pacific) time with the first two episodes. After that, new episodes will be released weekly, Fridays at 12:00 a.m. Eastern / Thursdays at 9:00 p.m. Pacific. There are eight episodes, and the schedule indicates that the finale will eventually stream on October 14. Since the series is already renewed for a season 2, you don’t have to worry about the future here.

In general, Amazon has sky-high hopes for this show, which is based mostly on appendices and supplemental material from J.R.R. Tolkien. It is a prequel to both The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings in a sense, as it is set many years before and gives you a better sense of some of the other rings that were crafted alongside the One to Rule Them All. Some familiar faces, including Elrond and Galadriel, will be important to the story. This is one of the most expensive series ever made, so you have to hope for Amazon’s sake this is a huge success.
