Season 1 of The Rings of Power's Cast
The Rings of Power will finally bring Tolkiens Second Age to life in a live-action adaptation. The series is fought by an ensemble cast of well-known and new characters as they battle an evil that threatens to overthrow all of Middle-earth and beyond.
Filmed in The Rings of Power
The first season of the show was shot in New Zealand, while the second season was shot in England and the United Kingdom. Auckland, Bovingdon Airfield, and Bray Studios were used for the shooting. The series pre-production apparently began in Auckland, although Scotland's Isle of Skye, Portpatrick, Scourie, Perthshire, and Loch Lomond were among the locations scouted there.
