‘The Lord of The Rings: The Rings of Power’ Season 2: Prime Video Unveils Trailer, Behind the Scenes Video, Release Date


Prime Video has released the official teaser trailer for the second season of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the next chapter. Watch the trailer above, the featurette below, and be sure to look beneath the featurette to find s2 key art featuring the return of Charlie Vickers in the role of Sauron – appearing in a new form.

The highly anticipated debut teaser trailer transports us back to J.R.R. Tolkien’s Second Age, immersing us in the action-packed resurgence of Sauron’s malevolent quest for dominion and reuniting us with beloved characters such as Galadriel, Elrond, Prince Durin IV, Arondir, and Celebrimbor.

In the upcoming season, the Dark Lord Sauron has returned, stripped of his allies and army by Galadriel. Forced to rely solely on his cunning, Sauron must rebuild his power and orchestrate the creation of the Rings, instruments of his plan to subjugate all of Middle-earth. Expanding on the epic scope and ambition of Season One, the new season plunges even its most cherished and vulnerable characters into an escalating tide of darkness. Each character is tested as friendships strain and kingdoms fracture, compelling them to seek their place in a world teetering on the edge of disaster. As elves, dwarves, orcs, men, wizards, and Harfoots grapple with rising threats, the forces of good must fight tenaciously to hold onto what matters most—each other.

In Season 2, many of the original cast members will be reprising their roles. This includes Morfydd Clark as Galadriel, Robert Aramayo as Elrond, Charles Edwards as Celebrimbor, Owain Arthur as Prince Durin IV, Sophia Nomvete as Princess Disa, and Ismael Cruz Córdova as Arondir.

Notably, Sam Hazeldine (Peaky Blinders) will take over the role of the villainous Adar, leader of the Orcs, from Joseph Mawle. Additionally, new cast members Ciarán Hinds (Rome, Game of Thrones), Rory Kinnear (Penny Dreadful), and Tanya Moodie (The Man Who Fell to Earth) have joined in yet-to-be-revealed roles.

The first season of The Rings of Power saw over 100 million viewers worldwide tuning in, amassing more than 32 billion minutes of streamed content. Prime Video reports that the series premiere alone attracted over 25 million global viewers on its first day, setting a record as Prime Video’s biggest debut. It also topped Nielsen’s overall streaming chart during its opening weekend, driving more Prime sign-ups than any previous content. The season finale sparked a global cultural moment, with multiple series-themed hashtags, including #TheRingsofPower, trending in 27 countries on Twitter for over 426 cumulative hours throughout the weekend.

The eagerly awaited second season of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is set to premiere globally on Thursday, August 29, 2024.
