This News Is Going To Warm Fans Of ‘Lord Of The Rings’

A television series is based on the works of Lord Of The Rings author J. R. R. Tolkien is currently in production. It’s being developed by J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay for Prime Video. Here’s what we know about the series so far before we take another long walk through Middle Earth.

The fellowship of the show

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom director J.A. Bayona will be at the helm for the first two episodes of the series, joined by producer Belén Atienza along with showrunners J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay.

An adaptation of the dense fantasy epics would need a stacked cast to pull off. The ensemble cast for the series has been announced and includes Robert Aramayo, Owain Arthur, Nazanin Boniadi, Tom Budge, Morfydd Clark, Ismael Cruz Cordova, Simon Merrells, Geoff Morrell, Peter Mullan, Lloyd Owen, Augustus Prew, Peter Tait, Alex Tarrant, Leon Wadham, Benjamin Walker and Cynthia Addai-Robinson among others.

The setting

Peter Jackson’s film trilogy covered Frodo’s journey to Mordor to destroy the Ring Of Power. Amazon Studios have confirmed that the show will set during The Second Age or the Age of Númenor, which is over 3000 years before the events of the original, a lot like another prequel to another epic fantasy series. This also means that Sauron, the main antagonist of the series will likely be featured.

Release

While Amazon has yet to reveal a release date for the show, it’s already been renewed for a second season with the same writers as the first one currently in production.

In the new season of The Viral Fever’s (TVF) college drama Girls Hostel, the medical versus dental wars continue between the girls.

The dental girls have been moved to a newer, smaller hostel where they’re facing a water crisis and other problems. This new season, unlike the first, focuses on more mature topics such as college politics, elections, eve teasing and more.
