The Rings of Power Season 2 Has Begun Filming

According to reports, filming for season 2 of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power has started in the UK. According to The Hollywood Reporter, filming for the Middle-earth prequel series has begun at Bray Studios, just outside of London. The Rings of Power made a five-season commitment to Amazon when the sophomore run was first announced back in 2019. Co-showrunner J.D. Payne later confirmed the news. This might provide LOTR aficionados with content that lasts up to 50 hours and explores tidbits of lore. Furthermore, Crdan the Shipwright, one of the most learned and foresighted of the elves, will be a new character in The Rings of Power season 2. There is currently no information on their casting.

Although New Zealand served as the location for season 1 filming and the first three Peter Jackson Trilogy, The Lord of the Rings series isn’t necessarily associated with the UK. Nevertheless, Amazon chose to relocate halfway across the globe beginning with The Rings of Power season 2. Eight weekly episodes of Season 1 were produced after 18 months of filming during the COVID-19 pandemic. The second season will have a same number of episodes, according to THR, and Amazon has established a “multishow hub” in the UK.

Speaking to The Playlist, back in August, co-showrunner Patrick McKay noted the reason for the shift as a way to emulate author J.R.R. Tolkien’s writing style and atmosphere. “Tolkien was writing about the British Isles. He was writing about his own backyard, and his description of the nature and the air here and the light here and the grass here is a huge part of those books.”

The Rings of Power was the largest launch on Amazon Prime Video last month, with 25 million global viewers tuning in within the first 24 hours. However, this would mark the first time the business had publicly broken internal TV ratings. Additionally, Prime Video, like the majority of OTT providers, has never provided a precise definition of what a “view” is.
