So, if you’re interested in appearing in the new TV series, you may need to be able to live and work in the area.

About ‘Lord of the Rings’:

Amazon’s ‘Lord of the Rings’ series was announced with a five-season order and a possibility of a spinoff. It is expected to be the most expensive series of all time costing a billion dollars to produce.

Amazon’s ‘Lord of the Rings’ series is set in the Second Age, which is a time period before ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘The Lord of the Rings’ movie.

One of the rumors is Amazon’s ‘Lord of the Rings’ series will have 20 episodes in the first season, but that news has yet to be confirmed. That said, not too much information has been released.

Recently, Amazon announced the cast of the Lord of the Rings series. Robert Aramayo, Owain Arthur and Nazanin Boniadi are among the show’s stars. Also joining the cast is Tom Budge, Morfydd Clark, Ismael Cruz Córdova, Ema Horvath, Markella Kavenagh, Joseph Mawle, Tyroe Muhafidin, Sophia Nomvete, Megan Richards, Dylan Smith, and Charlie Vickers.

“After undertaking an extensive global search, we are delighted finally to reveal the first group of brilliant performers who will take part in Amazon’s ‘The Lord of the Rings’ series,” said series showrunners J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay.

“These exceptionally talented women and men are more than just our actors: they are the newest members of an ever-expanding creative family that is now working tirelessly to bring Middle-earth to life anew for fans and audiences worldwide.”

The show’s creative team will include executive producers Lindsey Weber, Bruce Richmond, Gene Kelly and Amazon’s former head of programming Sharon Tal Yguado.

Details surrounding the plot have not been released other than the fact it will explore new storylines prior to  J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Fellowship of the Ring.”

The show’s official Twitter account sent out an image of a map along with the two tweets: “One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them, In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie,” and  “Welcome to the Second Age.” In the Tolkien mythicism, the Second Age was the period in which the Rings of Power, including Sauron’s One Ring, came into reality.
