The Lord of the Rings is among the most successful IP’s of streaming history and no wonder if it’s sequel seasons and spinoffs TV Shows are now breaking back to back records. When I was watching Rings of Powers season 1, I was lost in their way of storytelling. Call it as perfection or experience, but this franchise never disappoints us in the field of cinematography.

The Lord of Rings saga is known for maintaining a solid position in Hollywood. Any show which directly or indirectly belongs to this universe can indeed take some time for development, but they never takes a chance with their quality.

The Rings of Power season 1 premiered on streaming services in 2022, alongside with the popular House of The Dragon season 1. It was that moment when we got a change to witness a new rivalry which was slowly brewing on our screens. Both shows have garnered a lot of views and fans are expecting something similar once again (simply because both shows are getting second season).

As much as I knows, filming for Season 2 was concluded in early June 2023- just before the historic strike of SAG AFTRA. While Amazon Prime studios has not revealed anything about it, showrunners Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne has officially shared an official update. As per The Hollywood Reporter, fans can expect The Rings of Power Season 2 to premiere later this year in 2024.

If you don’t know then both of these showrunners are officially returning to direct season 3 and to mark it’s confirmation- they’ve already signed a new contract with Amazon MGM Studios for another three year-deal.

If you are keeping an eagle eye on this saga then you already knows a lot about it’s upcoming episodes. Season 1 ended on a huge cliffhanger where we saw three rings which got forged and are now set to bring in a lot of chaos. In fact, the whole Rings of Power season 2 is going to be based upon these three rings ofcourse.

I can assure you about one thing- the detailed story of Khazad-dûm and the Balrog. If you are getting confused then let me remind you the forging of these three rings. In season 1, it was Mithril who is the key to their creation but the original storyline from the book was revealing something else. So if Amazon Prime studios is showcasing us a huge development in this specific area, then I am pretty sure that Khazad-dûm and the Balrog are definitely going to get a good amount of screen time.

One thing that I would love to add is a report of a massive, two-episode-long battle sequence (via Winter is Coming). Now I am not sure but it seems like it will revolve around Sauron, whose identity has been revealed. It is also possible that Sauron may try to take control of the Orcs in Mordor in Rings of Power season 2. If it happens then it will bring a whole new perspective in this ongoing saga- hence, also setting up a base for third season.

You can also expect a new look at Galadriel as the actor who is behind this face (Morfydd Clark) has said that The Rings of Power season 2 will see a very different version of her character. Now I don’t know what this ‘different version’ is really going to be, but I am all in for it.

The full quote of Clark reads, “And now she’s [ Galadriel ] kind of thinking about the world and like, finding joy in things a bit more, despite the darkness. So that’s been really fun to play with“. Hence, expect a newly and well developed Galadriel with a lot of new and deep changes in her personality traits.

Apart from these plotlines, you can also expect some new faces in Rings of Power season 2. The company is already working on a third season and they will be needing some new faces who can pick up the load of third season. We don’t even know about all those characters who are going to die in season 2, so it makes some extra space for multiple new faces to enter in this universe.
