The plot of the series in short
The upcoming Amazon Studios series brings to the screens for the first time heroic legends about the legendary Second Age of Middle-earth history. This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of JRR Tolkien’s The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings, and will take viewers back to a time when great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and failed, incredible heroes were tested, hope hung on the finest threads and the greatest villain ever to spring from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover the whole world with darkness.
Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows a set of characters, familiar and new, as they face a long fear of the re-emergence of evil in Middle-earth. From the darkest depths of the misty mountains, to the majestic forests of the elven capital of Lyndon, to the beautiful island kingdom of Numenor, to the farthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will create a legacy that will live long after they are gone.
