The Lord of the Rings to Be Adapted into Television Series

Jack Gardner



Amazon has signed a deal to create a TV series based on the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. The series will serve as a prequel to The Fellowship of the Ring and will unfold over multiple seasons, indicating that Amazon plans to put considerable resources behind their show, which will be exclusive to the Amazon Prime streaming service. 


“The Lord of the Rings is a cultural phenomenon that has captured the imagination of generations of fans through literature and the big screen,” said Amazon Studios' Sharon Tal Yguado. In fact, The Lord of the Rings is such a cultural phenomenon that Amazon has optioned the rights to create a spin-off series based on the Tolkien property should the main series find success. 


No release date has been announced as the show is still only in the infant stages of production, but here's hoping that Amazon can take the time to do such a bold undertaking justice.
