Amazon Prime Video to Bow First Two Episodes of ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’ Sept. 1-2

Amazon Prime Video Aug. 16 confirmed that the first two episodes of original series “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” will premiere on Sept. 1-2 (time zone dependent). The rest of the episodes will follow a weekly, single-episode rollout. The episodes will launch at the same time around the world. The finale of the eight-episode first season will air on Oct. 14.

The series aims to bring to screens for the very first time the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth’s history. The storyline is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s novels and Warner Bros. Pictures’ “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings” movie franchises.
