‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Season 2’ officially announced to begin filming

News

‘The Lord of the Rings’ series ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Season 2’ has officially announced the start of filming, and it will start at Bray Studios outside London on Monday.

Since Season 1 was filmed over 18 months during global restrictions, we could perhaps expect Season 2 to be done in a shorter amount of time.

That would mean a potential release date of late 2023 or early 2024. We’ll update this section as more information comes out.

No, there isn’t a trailer for Rings of Power Season 2 at the time of writing, as Season 1 is still ongoing.

There are currently no official casting announcements for the second season, though it is expected that many members of the cast will return. Even if the series has time jumps, many of the characters are borderline immortal, so recasting won’t be an issue.

Currently, we at Dexerto have a list of all the important characters and their actors, who you can check out here. So far, each of them has the potential to return for Season 2.

The production has also announced that a new character, Círdan, will be joining the ensemble of the elves, though the role has not been cast yet.

Concrete plot details for the show’s second season are few and far between, since Season 1 hasn’t even ended yet, but the series will continue the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s fabled Second Age in his book The Silmarillion, which covers Sauron overtaking Middle-earth, as well as the creation of the One Ring.

As we witnessed Mordor being created with an explosive volcanic eruption in Episode 6, we can expect the location and Mount Doom to play a large part in the second season.

There are plenty of other events documented in The Silmarillion as well, including the fall of Númenor and the founding of Gondor and Arnor, so the show will likely never be short of material.
