In India, the first and the second episode of the series will be available to stream on Amazon Prime Video on September 2 at 6.30 pm IST. The rest of the episodes (eight) of the series will drop on a weekly basis every Friday at 9.30 am IST. The season finale is scheduled for October 14.
The series is set in a period called the “Second Age” that existed thousands of years before The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. It will be a story of Middle Earth. It will also include the fall of Morgoth, Sauron’s master. As per the official synopsis:
“This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘The Lord of the Rings,’ and takes viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness.”
