Amazon Confirms Multi-Season 'Lord Of The Rings' TV Series

It's been 14 years now since Peter Jackson's big screen version of the story concluded with 2003's Best Picture victor, The Return of the King.

Deadline is reporting that Amazon put down close to $250 million to acquire the rights to the much revered J.R.R. Tolkien fantasy novel revolving around a ring that not only binds a bunch of undead kings to one evil overlord, but also somehow conjoined Amber Rose and 21 Savage in real life. Instead, the series will focus on new storylines which take place before the events of The Fellowship of the Ring. These new TV shows will be produced in cooperation with the Tolkien Estate and Trust, book publisher HarperCollins and Warner Bros.

The new series will start with the story of what happened in the lead-up to The Fellowship Of The Ring, the first part of Tolkien's trilogy made into a film starring Elijah Wood and Sir Ian McKellen in 2001. Amazon has signed a deal with the Tolkien Estate and Trust, HarperCollins, and New Line, to develop and stream a TV series based on the Lords of the Rings universe. The deal also includes a potential spinoff series at Amazon.
