THE STORY OF THIS EPIC DRAMA
is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and will take viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness. Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth. From the darkest depths of the Misty
Mountains, to the
majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking
island kingdom of Númenor, to the furthest reaches of the map,
kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after
they are gone!
