The launch of The Lord of the Rings: The Power Rings is the company's most successful series debut of all time, according to Amazon. For the first time ever, Amazon's streaming service Prime Video has published viewership statistics, reports "The Hollywood Reporter" on the numbers at the start of the series.
"The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power" is considered the most expensive series of all time. A total of five seasons are planned. The TV show is set in the second age in the history of Middle-earth. And thus thousands of years before the events of "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings".
Filming for the first season continued in New Zealand until the summer of 2021. The second season will be produced in the UK.
