We told you that Amazon wanted a LOTR TV Show, and Amazon always gets what it wants.

 

 

Amazon has officially given the green light Variety reports, to a new small screen series based on J.R.R. Tolkien‘s The Lord of the Rings. The new program will set its story before the events of The Fellowship of the Ring, taking viewers on Middle-earth adventures not yet seen on the TV screen.

The deal also includes a potential additional spin-off series. The series will be produced by Amazon Studios in cooperation with the Tolkien Estate and Trust, HarperCollins and New Line Cinema, a division of Warner Bros. Entertainment.

“’The Lord of the Rings’ is a cultural phenomenon that has captured the imagination of generations of fans through literature and the big screen, We are honored to be working with the Tolkien Estate and Trust, HarperCollins and New Line on this exciting collaboration for television and are thrilled to be taking ‘The Lord of the Rings’ fans on a new epic journey in Middle Earth.” Sharon Tal Yguado, head of scripted series for Amazon Studios.

With the success of Game Of Thrones, this seemed like a no brainier that someone would attempt that type of epic set in the LOTR universe.

    This is actually shocking news. Looks like maven & the Tolkien professor planned the wrong book! New podcast series incoming surely? 😀

    I for one want to see what they will do with the existing lore prior to the Third Age. Most likely it will be a Second Age story but we will see… If it turns out to be something set around the Silmarilion then YAY!

    I guess this wil be set at those years prior to fellowship of the ring, or the beggining of the book. From 3000 to 3018 third age, maybe? Aragorns story maybe, idk we will see.
    It is a good thing it will not be LOTR remake, at least that.
