Amazon Finally Releases the First 'The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power' Season 2 Trailer, Confirms Release Date

Whether you liked it or not, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power became a hit series for Amazon and it was expected that the series would be renewed for a second season, whose eight episodes have been confirmed for a 2024 release. Now, until just a few minutes ago, Amazon kept the series under tight wraps, but we have finally received the first official trailer for the second season of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, and alongside that, we can also confirm that the series will premiere on August 29, 2024, as the release date was also revealed along with the trailer.

The showrunners, Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne, are returning for the season, which is going to premiere exclusively on Amazon later this year. In this report, we are going to bring you the trailer and all the relevant information about the upcoming season.

Before we continue, as it is our tradition here on Fiction Horizon, here is the trailer for you, so you can enjoy it for yourselves:

The trailer, in our honest opinion, seems spectacular. A lot of familiar and new locations, very different atmospheres in various scenes, some old and some new faces… the trailer has it all and the eight-episode premiere is something that will be eagerly awaited by fans.

So, what do we know about the season? Well, aside from the showrunners, we know that a lot of familiar faces from Season 1 are going to be making a comeback, and they are: Cynthia Addai-Robinson as Míriel, Robert Aramayo as Elrond, Owain Arthur as Durin IV, Maxim Baldry as Isildur, Nazanin Boniadi as Bronwyn, Morfydd Clark as Galadriel, Ismael Cruz Córdova as Arondir, Charles Edwards as Celebrimbor, Trystan Gravelle as Pharazôn, Ema Horvath as Eärien, Markella Kavenagh as Elanor “Nori” Brandyfoot, Geoff Morrell as Waldreg, Tyroe Muhafidin as Theo, Peter Mullan as Durin III, Sophia Nomvete as Disa, Lloyd Owen as Elendil, Alex Tarrant as Valandil, Charlie Vickers as Sauron, Leon Wadham as Kemen, Benjamin Walker as Gil-galad, and Daniel Weyman as the Stranger.

As for the new faces, the following actors have been confirmed to appear, but most of them in undisclosed roles as of the time of writing: Gabriel Akuwudike, Oliver Alvin-Wilson, Yasen “Zates” Atour, Stuart Bowman, Gavi Singh Chera, William Chubb, Ben Daniels, Kevin Eldon, Sam Hazeldine as Adar, Ciarán Hinds, Rory Kinnear, Amelia Kenworthy, Will Keen, Selina Lo, Calam Lynch, Tanya Moodie, Nia Towle, and Nicholas Woodeson.

As for the plot, the official synopsis for the upcoming season reveals the following information:

Sauron has returned. Cast out by Galadriel, without army or ally, the rising Dark Lord must now rely on his own cunning to rebuild his strength and oversee the creation of the Rings of Power, which will allow him to bind all the peoples of Middle-earth to his sinister will. Building on Season 1’s epic scope and ambition, Season 2 of Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power plunges even its most beloved and vulnerable characters into a rising tide of darkness, challenging each to find their place in a world that is increasingly on the brink of calamity. Elves and dwarves, orcs and men, wizards and Harfoots… as friendships are strained and kingdoms begin to fracture, the forces of good will struggle ever more valiantly to hold on to what matters to them most of all… each other.

To reiterate once again, the second season of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power premieres on August 29, 2024, and will consist of eight episodes. Most of the characters from Season 1 are set to return, with many new faces arriving in Season 2, some of whom are very big names from the industry. The series will stream exclusively on Amazon and we are going to bring you all the news and updates related to the series, so be sure to keep following us!
