Spoilers for season 1 below.
With the first rings forged and the true identity of Galadriel’s groom—er, sorry, mortal enemy—revealed, the rings of power it’s finally rising now that its first season has aired. But the fires of Mount Doom won’t wait for any man (or leprechaun), and you’d better believe Amazon Prime Video plans to milk their Lord of the Rings IP for as long as possible. (There are still more JRR Tolkien footnotes to explore!) So another four seasons of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power are already queued, like rings co-showrunner JD Payne revealed before the first season premiered.
“There are things in season one that don’t pan out until season 5,” Payne said. Empire in June 2022. “We even know what our final shot of the last episode will be.”
With that in mind, here’s what we know about what’s next for Middle-earth.
Will rings of power do you have a season 2?
Yes, and three more later. Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, revealed during an interview with Variety, “We are building infrastructure for five seasons. We are building a small city. We were always going to spend what we needed to spend to get it right.”
When will season 2 be rings of power out?
Five seasons in total are planned, with season 2 expected to be sooner rather than later, possibly even in 2023. As Salke revealed, the second episode is already in production. “We’re going to get that out to the world as soon as we can,” she said. Variety. “We want as little time between seasons as possible, but we want to keep the bar as high. So it will take what it takes. But there’s been some urgency to move quickly, which is why these guys have been writing through their entire hiatus. We are moving fast. As of December 2022, the cast was filming in the UK.
Who will be in the cast?
Morfydd Clark, Robert Aramayo, Owain Arthur, Nazanin Boniadi, Ismael Cruz Cordova, Charlie Vickers, Markella Kavenagh, Daniel Weyman, Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Sophia Nomvete, and more are expected to return.
But Prime Video has also announced additions to the already extensive cast. An as-yet-unannounced newcomer will play Círdan, a wise old elf with an essential role not only in the Second Age of Middle-earth, but in the Third and Fourth Ages as well.
In addition to this TBD actor, Prime Video has announced that seven others will be joining Season 2: Gabriel Akuwudike (hanna); Yasen ‘Zates’ Atour (The Wizard); ben daniels (The crown); Amelia Kenworthy; Nia Towle (Persuasion); Nicholas Woodeson (silent witness, heavy rain); and Sam Hazeldine (Peaky Blinders), replacing Joseph Mawle as the villainous orc Adar.
What will season 2 be about?
We still don’t know much about the plot details of the upcoming season, though it’s likely Galadriel is still reeling from her crush gone wrong, bless her. as payne said Don in an October 2022 interview, “Even knowing that Sauron was partially involved in the science behind the making of the rings, we see [Galadriel] give the go-ahead to make the rings anyway. She also has to take some responsibility: ‘I empowered the Dark Lord. I saved his life on a raft. I was a supporter of him coming out of obscurity to lead an army. That’s a lot to deal with and be responsible for. I think we can expect to see her having to pick up those strings and see how those decisions impact her various relationships.”
So we can expect some tension between Galadriel and Elrond, the latter of whom seemed to learn Halbrand’s true identity from a genealogy scroll he collects in the final moments of season 1. “I think it’s pretty clear by the end that there’s a bit of a conflict at that point,” writer Gennifer Hutchinson told Polygon. “She’s asked a lot of her. We really wanted to have that. ‘This is the real test; you said you would trust me. We really wanted to make sure that was done.’ would comply”.
And as Charlie Vickers’ Halbrand pushes toward the lava-spewing mouth of Mount Doom in the final frames of Season 1, we can expect much more at stake in Season 2. The real battle is about to begin.
