The Hobbits, Ents, Elves and men seem to have found a new Middle Earth to call home now. Season two of Amazon’s upcoming Lord of the Rings series has set sights on new locations for filming the show’s new season. The first season was filmed entirely in New Zealand, similar to the film trilogies. 

According to Variety, season two of the fantasy series has decided on a few new locations in the United Kingdom such as Bray Film Studios and Bovingdon Airfield. The show will start pre-production in 2022.

The move marks the first time a live action Lord of the Rings project has had it’s production carried out in a location outside of New Zealand. Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Hobbit trilogy were filmed entirely in the island country. 

The yet to be titled series was announced back in 2017. The premise of the series is said to take place thousands of years before the events of Jackson’s films. The series has on J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay as showrunner and executive producer respectively. The show’s cast includes Sir Lenny Henry, Morfydd Clark, Peter Mullan, Joseph Mawle and Robert Aramayo.

Both the series and Jackson’s film franchise are based on J. R. R. Tolkien’s novels.

Season one of the Lord of the Rings series will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on September 2, 2022.
