The first season of Amazon’s much-anticipated series adaptation of The Lord of the Rings isn’t even in production yet. The series is currently in pre-production in New Zealand, where the show will be filmed. But whatever Amazon has seen of what’s been developed so far has given them all of the confidence necessary to move forward with an early greenlight for season two.
Shortly after we found out that Amazon was in talks for a Lord of the Rings TV series back in 2017, it was confirmed that they had reached a deal and had committed to a multiple-season adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien‘s classic work. So seeing that season two has been greenlighted, even this early, is not all that surprising. But according to reports their multiple-season commitment didn’t necessarily guarantee a second season—understandable, considering the mind-boggling mountains of coin that would be required to produce the five seasons Amazon committed to—and an official greenlight was still needed.
Amazon has announced the full lineup of movies and television shows set to arrive on Prime Video in the new month.
This includes a few highlighted titles coming to the streaming service as well as a little bit about them, followed by the rest of the incoming movies and TV shows and the date they’ll be added to Prime Video.

Amazon has released a new trailer for The Aeronauts, an upcoming feature starring Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne. The actors previously starred in The Theory of Everything together, which led to an Academy Award nomination for Jones and an Academy Award win for Redmayne.
In the movie, which is inspired by true events, Jones plays a daredevil named Amelia who, along with a meteorologist named James (Redmayne), sets off on a hot air balloon adventure to both study the weather and fly higher than anyone else ever has before.
You can find an official synopsis for The Aeronauts and check out the new trailer below, along with a previously released trailer for anyone who missed it.
