Many fans are excited to see what Amazon will do with their upcoming Lord of the Rings TV series, and a new rumor suggests it could keep fans interest for several years to come.
Current rumors suggest that Amazon’s Lord of the Rings series will last five seasons. Not much is known about the series, but many people who know about the project say it will possibly cost $1 billion to Amazon to produce. The latest rumors also suggest that the series will not simply re-tell the story of the original trilogy or the Hobbit franchise. Instead, it will focus on the back story to the series with most people believing it will include Aragorn, the Ranger who becomes the King of Gondor and was played by Viggo Mortensen in the movies.
Some other rumors suggest that the show will be based on notes and outlines J.R.R. Tolkien made while writing the original books.
The show’s been under intense speculation from fans for months. Some believe Peter Jackson, who directed all the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies, will return in some form to help produce the new show. And there’s even rumors that some of the actors from the original movies may return in the new series.
But for now, there’s really nothing to confirm. But still, this could be a great show to help us get through our withdrawals after Game of Thrones ends.
