Amazon has already ordered a second season of The Lord of the Rings. The series will also go on hiatus for several months after the first two episodes have been completed. This will allow the showrunners to plan season 2’s storylines as well. 

The Lord of the Rings also features Ema Horvath, Markella Kavenagh, Maxim Baldry, Joseph Mawle and Morfydd Clark. For now, the series is still in pre-production.
