Prime dropped its trailer for the second season of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power the same day that HBO dropped theirs for the second season of House of the Dragon and we don’t know which one of them started it, but it’s not a good idea for Prime to continue to fan the flames of this comparison. HotD was a runaway hit and TRoP had something like a 37% completion rate for the streamer. Personally, while we felt HBO’s fantasy jawn had a bit more weight, heft, and respectability to it, Prime’s expansion of the Tolkien universe got a bum rap. We painstakingly recapped every episode of the first season and found it enjoyable, if uneven. The trailer looks like it’s going all-in on Sauron, which is good, because one of the things the premiere season suffered from was the overwhelming sense that the whole thing was a prologue (which it is).

It looks as gorgeous as ever – and more expensive than House of the Dragon, to be honest. We’ll be seated.

Prime Video announced that Season Two will debut globally on Thursday, August 29, 2024, in more than 240 countries and territories in multiple languages.

Stunning new Season Two key art was also revealed today, featuring the return of Charlie Vickers in the role of Sauron, one of the world’s greatest literary villains, appearing in a new form – one that will aid him in deceiving the denizens of Middle-earth.

The debut teaser trailer takes viewers on an action-packed journey back to J.R.R. Tolkien’s Second Age, and shows the ascending evil presence of Sauron as he continues his vengeful quest for complete power. Showcasing the cinematic splendor that the series is known for, and heralding the return of many fan favorite characters, including Galadriel, Elrond, Prince Durin IV, Arondir, and Celebrimbor, this first-look also reveals the much-anticipated creation of more Rings.

In Season Two of The Rings of Power, Sauron has returned. Cast out by Galadriel, without army or ally, the rising Dark Lord must now rely on his own cunning to rebuild his strength and oversee the creation of the Rings of Power, which will allow him to bind all the peoples of Middle-earth to his sinister will. Building on Season One’s epic scope and ambition, the new season plunges even its most beloved and vulnerable characters into a rising tide of darkness, challenging each to find their place in a world that is increasingly on the brink of calamity. Elves and dwarves, orcs and men, wizards and Harfoots… as friendships are strained and kingdoms begin to fracture, the forces of good will struggle ever more valiantly to hold on to what matters to them most of all… each other.
