Amazon Studios announces a Prime-exclusive Lord of the Rings TV series with a possible spin-off, as well.
The deal, announced today, has Amazon creating a show that takes place preceding the The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien and is confirmed for multiple seasons. Amazon also confirms it will be exclusive to Amazon Prime's streaming service that is part of Amazon's Prime subscription. Amazon also has the rights to a potential spin-off series, but no details were made available about it.
“The Lord of the Rings is a cultural phenomenon that has captured the imagination of generations of fans through literature and the big screen,” said Amazon Studios' Sharon Tal Yguado.
No date has been given for the show yet, but it should hopefully not be too long.
