'Lord Of The Rings' TV Series In The Works For Amazon Prime

'Lord of the Rings' TV adaptation gets multi-season Amazon deal

The move is made more intense by the fact that no creative choices on the show have been made yet, save that it will be a prequel series taking place before the first LOTR film, The Fellowship of the Ring.

Are you excited about Lord of the Rings coming to the small screen? Speaking about the project, Head of Scripted Series at Amazon Studios, Sharon Tal Yguado, said: "The Lord of the Rings is a cultural phenomenon that has captured the imagination of generations of fans through literature and the big screen". That's not to say that Amazon is going to take that sort of comparison lying down and in an attempt to up their stock they have announced the production of a brand new The Lord of The Rings series for their streaming service.

Even as Game of Thrones begins to film its eighth and final seasons, other television networks are desperate to find their own epic fantasy series.

The Lord of the Rings canon was named Amazon customers' favourite book of the millennium in 1999. The Lord of the Rings film trilogy earned almost $6 billion worldwide, and picked up a combined 17 Academy Awards, including Best Picture for The Return of the King. With an all-star cast that included Elijah Wood, Viggo Mortensen, Ian McKellen, Liv Tyler, Sean Astin and Orlando Bloom, The Lord of the Rings trilogy garnered a combined 17 Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

Whenever Amazon's Lord of the Rings series arrives, it will be available exclusively to Prime members.
